Tanjung Piai by-election: Be mindful of race and religion

Pusat KOMAS wishes the best of luck to the candidates of upcoming Tanjung Piai by-election.

Pusat KOMAS strictly reminds the contending parties in Tanjung Piai by-election to refrain from using race and religion as their political tool in galvanising the support of masses.

There are no second-class citizens in Malaysia

Pusat KOMAS is disgruntled and dumbfounded with the recurring theme of, which exploits, race and religion that tailors irresponsible messages signaling as if the Malay-Muslims are threatened by the other ethnic groups in Malaysia. The union of political leaders from all sides, non-governmental organisations, varsity students and the Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammad at the Kongres Maruah Melayu under the umbrella of race and religion appears to be unhealthy and destructive to the development of an inclusive Malaysia.

Start Educating MOE on Respect for all Religions

Despite the urgency of reforming the Malaysian education system, our Ministry of Education (MOE) under the leadership of Dr. Maszlee Malik has decided to react bluntly to a school who had allegedly recited a Christian prayer during an awards ceremony.

Pusat KOMAS feels the MOE was ignorant of the Federal Constitution, hence ‘bullied’ the missionary school by reflexing its muscle through its issuance of an unnecessary warning.

MOHR should be stern in protecting job seekers from discrimination

Ministry of Human Resources under the purview of Minister YB Kula Segaran must declare whether the welfare and rights of the future workforce is a priority in the nation’s reform agenda championed by the Pakatan Harapan government. The future workforce comprise of, but not limited to fresh graduates, teenagers, and women – of all races, religions, and background – entering with the hope of igniting or improving their career.

Malaysia Racial Discrimination Report

in conjunction with the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

KOMAS together with 7 other civil society organizations have initiated a campaign to advocate the Malaysian government to ratify the ICERD.

ICERD is the INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION ON THE ELIMINATION OF ALL FORMS OF RACIAL DISCRIMINATION. The ICERD was adapted by UN general assembly in 1963 which commits its members to the elimination of racial discrimination and the promotion of equality and unity among all races.
