Teach kids that bullying is wrong, Fadlina urges parents, teachers


NIBONG TEBAL: Teach our children that bullying is wrong, Fadlina Sidek urged parents and teachers.

The Education Minister said the issue of bullying in schools was a priority for the Education Ministry.

"I take this opportunity to remind parents, teachers, the community, to advise their children not to get involved in bullying," she said after visiting the media centre here.

Fadhlina who is also Nibong Tebal MP was responding to a video showing a schoolgirl being slapped by two others, which has since gone viral on social media.

The incident is believed to have occurred in a school toilet in Kerian.

She said the ministry has conducted an investigation into this case and handed it over to the authorities to ensure appropriate actions were taken.

She said the ministry was implementing various approaches to curb bullying in schools.

She said the ministry has established and improved the regulations and guidelines related to bullying.

On Tuesday(June 25), Perak police chief Comm Datuk Seri Mohd Yusri Hassan Basri said police have launched an investigation over the alleged incident.

He said the incident occurred at about 10.30am on June 14.

He added that the 13-year-old victim was forced into the toilet by two girls, both aged 15.

He said it is believed the incident stemmed from jealousy because the victim is said to be close to one of the alleged bullies' boyfriend, also 15, at the same school.

A police report was lodged by the victim on Tuesday (June 25).
