Parents want an end to Nilai boarding school's 'culture of bullying' among students


NILAI: The parents of students who were allegedly assaulted by their seniors at a religious boarding school here have asked the school authorities to put an end to what they call a culture of bullying.

Ahmad Fauzi Md Sood, 50, the father of one student, said drastic action was needed as the "tradition of bullying” was getting worse at the school and regarded as normal.

"My son was a victim in a bullying incident which happened two days ago at 11pm in a boys’ hostel room where Form Four students beat up Form Two students,” he told a press conference here on Monday (May 16).

Ahmad Fauzi said the parents learnt of the incident from their children and not the school management.

He said his son suffered leg injuries after he was hit with a broom, an iron rod and a piece of wood by two Form Four students.

He said his son was traumatised and gasped for air as a result of the beating, and this had affected his studies.

Nur Azmi Mohd Nor, 44, the father of another victim, said his son also suffered the same effects following the alleged assault.

"The school appears to be indifferent and insensitive to this issue as it was trying to settle it quietly without discussing the matter with the parents concerned,” he claimed.

Nur Azmi said so far, seven reports have been lodged by parents of the affected students, who are all boys.

On Sunday (May 15), Nilai district police chief Supt Mohd Fazley Ab Rahman said police had received reports from three Form Two students of a religious boarding school in Nilai who claimed they had been assaulted by their seniors. – Bernama
