JOHOR BARU: A Muslim convert working at a Chinese medium school (SJKC) in Kampung Teluk Sengat here has been transferred after a member on the school’s board told her to remove her tudung (head scarf).
The teacher, who alleged that she was threatened over the matter, has been temporarily moved to a school in the Kota Tinggi district while the Johor Education Department probed the case.
Johor Education Department deputy director Md Hasidin Zaini said the department had received a report from the school’s principal and was contemplating appropriate action.
He added that the teacher had also lodged a police report.
Meanwhile, state executive councillor Md Jais Sarday said wearing the tudung is acceptable and that all teachers were told to dress appropriately.
“We will deal with the persons involved and there is no need to further probe into the issue,” he said.
