Malaysian Hindu Sangam wants religious studies to be made mandatoryJune 20th, 2009 - 4:20 pm ICT by ANI
Kuala Lumpur, June 20 (ANI): Kedah Hindu Sangam chief R.N. Mohan Shan has called for the religious studies to be made compulsory in Tamil schools in a bid to instill moral values in Malay-Indian students.
The Star quoted Shan, as saying that the introduction of religious classes would benefit students in understanding the noble values and cultures of the Malay-Indian community.
When most parents are busy working and unable to monitor their children’s movements, kids are found loitering at cyber cafes and being involved in petty crimes, he added.
Mohan Shan said the matter would be raised at the 32nd National Delegates Conference in Malacca in August. (ANI)
