DAP is disappointed that the police had prevented educationist group Dong Jiao Zong from having a gathering on Dec 28 to discuss the implementation of a Jawi calligraphy module in vernacular schools, says Lim Guan Eng.

The party's secretary-general said on Monday that under Malaysia Baru, the Pakatan Harapan government believes in the freedom of speech and that the police had no reason to prevent the event from taking place.

To a question, Lim said that parents should be the ones to decide if Jawi is to be taught in vernacular schools as the decision would affect their children.
