ALOR SETAR: History needs to be clearly explained but must not be influenced by current politics, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said
"Current text books are inaccurate as they had not given a clear background on the fight for the nation's independence.
“Not much is mentioned on the roles played by leaders such as firstprime minister Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra.
“And, because of this, the younger generation do not understand the country's history and origin," the former prime minister said.
“History cannot be reviewed as we cannot change what had happened. It is better to tell the truth about the nation's past,” he said adding that young Malaysians assumed the fight for independence was just another common fight that also took place in other countries.
He was commenting on a recent statement by Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Khaled Nordin that the history syllabus for schools would be revised following new findings of the nation's past.
