He was the one responsible to convert English medium to Malay school in 70s. Now he is crying foul to blame present government for the policy he had implemented.

Wiping out English campaign from our schools is to make sure students from the poor and rural areas are always stupid as their forefathers, and work for English speaking elites in the cities as cheap labors.

Master English to ensure we are not re-colonised, says Mahathir

SHAH ALAM (Dec 14, 2009): Malaysians have an extremely important role of mastering English to acquire knowledge at a faster pace to ensure there is no ‘re-colonisation’ of the country, said Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Without a good command of English, the former prime minister noted, the people would not acquire knowledge quickly.

He said this would, in turn, open doors to those knowledgeable to dominate and influence them, either directly or indirectly.

“English is the language of the Knowledge Age. Countries which do not master English will not only be left behind but risk being colonised, either directly or indirectly.
