KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 17 ― Deputy Human Resource Minister Datuk Awang Hashim told Dewan Rakyat today that loyal Malaysians should always speak and use Malay in all sectors.
This was his response to a question from Cha Kee Chin (Rasah-PH) on whether the job interviews for workers by the ministry are done in English.
“If we are Malaysians, we are loyal to Malaysia, we use the national language because it is enshrined,” he replied Cha.
Few days ago, Awang chided a reporter for asking him a question in English Language regarding the PAS’ policies towards gambling in Kedah.
” You are Malaysian, right? So speak in Malay,” he told her.
