    Abstract

    THE Interlok saga which hogged headlines for weeks has been resolved. The novel by Datuk Abdullah Hussain will be retained as a literature component of Bahasa Malaysia for fifth-formers in schools. However, sections deemed sensitive to the Indian community will be amended. That members of the Cabinet are involved in offering a solution to the quandary is rather unusual, since the issue is academic-cum-literary in nature. The last time the Cabinet was in this predicament was when a similar incident flared up, which led to it acting as an editorial board of sorts, directing a group of academics on how to write a book about race relations in Malaysia.
