Education system polarising Malaysians

Don: Education system polarising us

Dialogue is a matter of national integration but the Malaysian education system does not inculcate the three pre-requisites for inter-religious cooperation and relations, said sociologist Dr Syed Farid Alatas.

“We do not live according to the three principles for harmonious relations – recognising the multi-cultural origins of civilisation, inter-religious encounters and showing respect and understanding the point of the other,” said Dr Syed Farid, the head of the Malay Studies Department and associate professor of sociology at the National University of Singapore.
“We have little appreciation for each other’s religion and culture.”- DR SYED FARID ALATAS

Our education system does not inculcate these attitudes in us but instead tends to polarise us. We have little appreciation for each other’s religion and culture. In China, there is a strong interaction between Islam and Chinese culture.”

He said this yesterday at the International Institute of Advanced Islamic Studies/Isis National Affairs Forum held at the Isis Malaysia office.
