Why non Bumis opposing History as a must-pass subject?
it is a good move that history be made a must-pass subject as the new generation lacked understanding of the nation's history. the youngsters nowadays spend their time in front of computers.they look for a comfortable life but are not well-versed in the country's history.the education ministry said that history would be made a must-pass subject in the SPM examination from 2013 along with the Bahasa Malaysia subject but the non bumis especially those from the opposition party don't agree with the move.to them Malaysia history is not important as they said it only involves the bumis only.well everyone should understand this land earlier was called tanah melayu and obviously they are the people who lives there.while in sabah and sarawak they have indigenous population which made up of some 30 groups.the non bumis came in the later part of the history but they are still part of the history.they should not fear with Malaysia's history if they really love this country.they should be proud of it and happy with the move that history be made a must-pass subject so that everyone in this country knows about the history of the country.we can see in a poll carry out by the star which majority of its readers are non bumis voted whether the agree with the ministry's move or not. 75% opposed it,why? they are simply not patriotic and does not have love for this country.
