As everyone knows a video regarding 50 Malay students from Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) bullying / harrassing / insulting about 4-7 Chinese students in the canteen of the UPM campus, had been loaded-up into Youtube.com..
According to sources, it is said that the Chinese students are members of the UPM Students Progessive Fronts (SPF) and the Malays were led by a student council leader to confront the Chinese, had been uploaded onto Youtube.com..
Well, I have no idea what SPF is and they were actually setting up a help counter in the canteen to guide or help the freshies..
SPF is not an official body in the university..Therefore, the Malays were trying to interrupt their works and tried to stop them from helping the new students..
Enough said..Further details please refer to The Sun Online : Mob Heckles Seven Undergrads in UPM..
To watch the video, here it is..Youtube.com – Humiliation in Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM)..
Okay..My main discussion here is not on the UPM case itself, but rather about another serious matter related to hooliganism.?? Or raggings.??
New intakes for local uni had taken place in the recent weeks..
Local universities are referred to the likes of UPM, USM, UKM, UM, UMS, UUM, UiTM, etc etc..
Complaint letters can be seen in newspaper such as The Star..
The freshies were complaining about the infamous raggings during orientations..
Ragging, brings a meaning that freshies will be bullied by the senior students or committee members in any high-profile councils or societies, such as the Student Council, during the orientation running period..
Letters written by freshies themselves, said they were being bullied with commando-like routines, such as duck walk or run around the field..
Scoldings and harrassments were also mentioned..
Commando-like routines are just a mere matter..They were also having insufficient sleeps, where the freshies were given tasks and activities in the middle of the night..
That left them merely LESS than 4 hours sleep, continuously for a week or two, where usually orientation would be a 2 weeks event..
They have to endure the raggings and couldn’t concentrate in lectures and tutorials when all the classes had started..
I DO BELIEVED that these raggings were mostly,though not all, are conducted by the MALAYS.!! Yeah, you heard me..I’m not trying to be a racist here..
I, as a pure Chinese, LOVE to be friended with Malays, A LOT..Sometimes I find them much more friendlier than any Chinese..
But in this case, NOT~!!
I myself as a student of Tunku Abdul Rahman College (TARC), where a whooping 92% are Chinese (in my wild guess), didn’t faced any raggings in the campus..
Most Chinese senior students are willing to help out the freshies..
To make this statement true and absolute, I, as the ex-Form 6 Council President (ahem~) of Cochrane Road Secondary School didn’t abused my authority power to bully or done any raggings aganist the freshies..
I had done some activities, which they thought kinda lame and silly..But in the end, they enjoyed it and the ice had broken between the Upper Sixers and Lower Sixers..
Ragging has to be stopped or this custom will be continued to live on forever..
