KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 1 — Seputeh MP Teresa Kok is pushing the education minister to take an official stand on the case of a teacher who sued his former student for alleged defamation after she called him out for making light about rape.

The veteran lawmaker said she was appalled to read that the teacher, Khairul Nizam Sanuddin, had filed a defamation suit against teenager Ain Husniza Saiful Nizam, who highlighted his remarks about rape on her social media accounts.

“I think this is the first case in Malaysia where a male teacher has actually sued his student.

“The legal action by Khairul Nizam indicates that despite the media onslaught on his action, he is nonchalant and still feels what he did is proper. His legal action has made a mockery of the teaching profession in Malaysia,” Kok said in a statement last night.
