I REFER to the article “School blasted for not allowing students to take Tamil subjects” (The Star, May 12; online at 2ndlanguage).

That students face difficulty in taking Tamil, one of the vernacular languages listed in the national curriculum, is concerning as minority languages which are not on the list face way too many obstacles.
