 I’m sure the YB (who is also Deputy Education Minister, and a Muslim) won’t be dumb enough to give alcohol as part of hamper gift, what more to school administrators in the school. You can put fruits, biscuits, chocolates, cordials etc. in hampers. No need to encourage alcohol drinking.

Wonder how this came to be.

If indeed this happened, a shameful incidence for Indian community. Seems like the perception of others is that drinking is a culture of the community.


… In Batu Pahat, several Tamil school headmasters and their assistants were suprised to see hampers on their tables when they returned to work after the Deepavali break.

What stunned them the most was that the hampers contained a bottle of Famous Grouse whisky.

The hampers were from the Batu Pahat MP Mohd Puad Zarkashi, who is also the deputy education minister.

“Most of us were suprised and felt uncomfortable. Firstly, the hamper contained a liqour bottle and secondly, we as civil servants should not receive such gifts

“Perhaps it is the deputy minister’s way of thanking us for our contribution,” said a teacher, who declined to be named.

However, he said that sending flowers would suffice and there was no need for liquor bottles.
