Petition: Review history syllabus in Malaysia

Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

The Centre for Policy Initiatives is urging the public to sign an important petition by a courageous parent calling on the authorities to act immediately to address the bias and shortcomings plaguing the Malaysian history syllabus and textbooks.

Our younger generation deserve a broad, impartial and fair history in their education. They do not deserve narrowly blinkered history textbooks and a syllabus that are bent on propagandising parochial ethno-nationalist and religiously biased perspectives and knowledge.

All parents and taxpayers in the country should be concerned with the current situation of history education which is providing our children with selective and biased views and knowledge that can only further polarise and divide the communities and nation rather than serve to unify us on the basis of a fair and accurate representation of our past and that of all civilisations.
