KUALA LUMPUR: The government must be more proactive in getting non-Malays master the Malay language befitting its role as the national language.

The national language ideology should be created so that the the younger generation better understand the role of Malay language as the official language of the country.
Malay language sociolinguistic expert Prof Dr Teo Kok Seong said many young Chinese cannot speak Malay well due to negative attitude and upbringing that the mother tongue is superior.
The Malays must set a good example by appreciating the national language as only then it will encourage the non-Malays to master it.
“Positive attitude of the Malays will give rise to confidence and place the national language on the right track,” he said in the talk show ‘Dalam Radar’ by Bernama Radio24.
Teo who is also deputy director of Institute of Malay World and Civilisation,  Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, did not deny that lack of articles to empower the Malay language in vernacular newspapers was also responsible.     — BERNAMA

“many young Chinese cannot speak Malay well due to negative attitude and upbringing that the mother tongue is superior.”

Not correct. Mandarin that they want in Chinese schools is not mother tongue. Hokkien, Cantonese, Hakka are only dialects, spoken only in south China where practically all Malaysian Chinese originated from.

“The Malays must set a good example by appreciating the national language as only then it will encourage the non-Malays to master it.”

Yes, up to a point. Now I have to write in English because many non-Malays won’t get my message otherwise. The Dong Zong and those trying to propagate Chinese schools don’t seem to bother how much good examples shown by the Malays and how positive the attitude of the Malays towards BM may be.

Those fellows don’t seem to care the walloping they have been given year in and year out on the need for national unity through BM, that Chinese schools should be merged with the Sekolah Kebangsaan in a single-stream education system and that Mandarin and Tamil can be studied as elective subjects in Sekolah Kebangsaan.

Their kind in south China don’t even bother about Mandarin as the official language of China. They understand a little, by the use of force. The Peking Government forced them to use Mandarin and enforce existing and new rules, but they even held demonstrations in Canton and Hong Kong.

Perhaps they need the Thai, Filipino or Indonesian way of making them respect and use the language of their country of adoption.
