Most Indians and Chinese were not born with a golden spoon in their mouths.
I wonder who informed our Education Minister that the non-Malays in the country were born with golden spoons in their mouths.
As an Indian, all I recall is having to work like mad to get an education and earn a living in this country.
From the time I left school in 1987, I worked as a waiter, car washer, tutor and even security guard to make it through college.
My dad, a retired government servant could only afford my A-levels and after that, my family had no more money to fund my education.
My parents already had a second mortgage on our family house to fund my elder siblings, while my dear mum had sold off every single piece of her jewellery.
I began working at the age of 18-years-old and made it on my own through law school.
In my early thirties, I decided to do my Masters and through a friend, I approached MIC for a study loan.
I was made to run around like a madman and eventually never got a single cent from this irrelevant party.
From what I recall, all MIC ever did was for its own benefit and not helping the Indian community.
Eventually, I took a study loan from Citibank for RM60,000 and managed to raise the rest.
I completed my Masters and took five years to repay my bank loan.
Overall, it has been a struggle and till today, it still is.
I really do not understand what nonsense Maszlee is talking about.
The reason we Indians and Chinese are pushed to private education is simply because we can never get into public institutions.
Please get your facts right before shooting off your mouth Maszlee and stop making PH leaders constantly look like fools!
