Dong Jiao Zong’s congress regarding Jawi education may be nixed, but a separate event by different organisers on the same issue will be proceeding on Sunday.
The congress by the Seni Khat Action Team (Sekat) will be held at the Crystal Crown Hotel in Petaling Jaya on Sunday morning.
Sekat secretary Arun Doraisamy said police had already been informed of the matter, and they are also hoping that Education Minister Maszlee Malik will attend.
“I urge Maszlee to take this opportunity to show up in good faith for the sake of unity to resolve this issue and listen to the rakyat,” he said in a statement tonight.
