Women Minister should take a stand on the situation faced by student Ain: Senator Hui Ying

Press Statement by Lim Hui Ying (DAP Penang State Secretary/Senator of the Dewan Negara) on Sunday, 8 August 2021 in George Town, Penang:

I call upon the Minister of Women, Family and Community Development Rina Harun to make a stand on the situation being faced by the student Ain Husniza.

It is a disgrace that the Minister who could have intervened in the situation has chosen to keep quiet.

Ain is a young Malaysian and her generation will be the future leaders of the country. Minister Rina’s inaction sets a bad example for the future leaders of tomorrow.

Ain is not just facing a million Ringgit lawsuit by the teacher she had exposed but she is now being investigated by the police for intentional insult.

She has filed a countersuit against her teacher but what we want our government to do is to acknowledge that the government stands with victims instead of just saying the issue must not be trivialised and stern action would be taken.

If action is to be taken by the government, then what action will that be?

Suits have been filed and a police investigation has been launched on a 17 years old student while the investigation on the teacher has been closed.

Why is Minister Rina still keep quiet and not doing anything?

Is this the kind of message the PN government is sending to young women? That exposing the misconduct of a teacher will only get the student into trouble?

Instead of progressing as a nation that protects women, our country under the backdoor PN government is regressing.

I will stand with Ain. And I invite all Malaysian women to stand together with her to show that we can do better than the backdoor Minister.

林慧英(槟州民主行动党州秘书/国会上议员)于 2021 年 8 月 8 日(星期日)在槟城乔治市发表的新闻文告:

我呼吁妇女、家庭及社会发展部长丽娜哈伦就学生艾因(Ain Husniza) 所面临的处境表明立场。

这是一件由部长介入可以解决的问题,但基于负责的部长选择沉默不语,对此事件已形成为耻辱。

艾因是一位年轻的马来西亚人,她这一代人将成为大马未来的主人翁。丽娜哈伦部长的不作为,将对我们的未来主人翁树立了一个不良示范。

艾因不仅遭她所揭露的老师起诉一百万令吉,而且她如今也遭警方以蓄意侮辱罪展开调查。

尽管她已对她的老师提出反诉,但我们希望政府能够表态并与受害者站在同一个立场,并且会采取严厉的行动,而不是区区表示这不是一个被轻视的议题
(https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2021/04/29/rina-harun-do-not-trivialise-rape-jokes-at-school-stern-action-must-be-taken )。

如果政府要采取行动,那会是什么行动?

一名 17 岁的学生已被起诉,警方也对她展开调查,但是对教师的调查却已经结束。

为什么丽娜哈伦部长却仍然保持沉默,什么都不做呢?

这是国盟政府向年轻女性传达的信息吗?揭发老师的不当行为受到惩罚的只会是学生吗?

我们的国家并没有透过保护女性而展现进步,却因为后门国盟政府的治理下出现倒退的现象。

我会和艾因站在一起,而我也号召所有马来西亚女性与她站在一起,以展现我们肯定会比后门部长做得更好。
