Muhyiddin: No directive on baju kurung for non-Muslim students

There has been no directive by the Education Ministry to stop non-Muslims students from wearing baju kurung to school said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
Muhyiddin said on Thursday that the regulation was probably issued by the school itself and added that the ruling was not right.

"We will speak to the school authorities and correct this ruling so that it is in accordance to the regulations set by the ministry," he said.

Muhyiddin, who is also Education Minister, said that schools should not set their own regulations as they wished.

It was previously reported that a secondary student who was non-Muslim was barred from entering class as she wore a baju kurung.

The school claimed that it was against their dress code.
