Kok's debate on the Royal Address] (The Sun)
Excerpt from The Sun:
"Loh Seng Kok (BN-Kelana Jaya) said the history books
used in school only reflected the contributions of the Malay community.
He said for example in the struggle against the Japanese in the
second World War, history books gave the impression that only the Malays
fought the Japanese.
"It does not reflect the contributions made by the Chinese and
Indians," he said in his debate on the Royal Address.
Loh also said Indian and Chinese civilisations in history books were
also not given much emphasis.
On religion, Loh said it was about time for the government to
seriously consider setting up a department specifically to oversee the
development of other faiths.
"It is about time to set up a 'Jabatan Kemajuan Agama-Agama Lain Di
Malaysia' so that it can work with its Islamic counterpart, Jakim, to
find solutions when differences arise," he added."
