Stay away, don tells students

(The Star) – Students from public universities should not attend illegal rallies, said Malaysian Higher Education Public Institutions Vice-Chancellors and Rectors Committee chairman Prof Tan Sri Dzulkifli Abdul Razak.

Prof Dzulkifli, who is Universiti Sains Malaysia vice-chancellor, said university students and staff should stay away from activities that could cause problems to themselves and the country.

“I hope students on long holiday and those undergoing their industry training will not be involved in such activities,” he said in a statement yesterday.

In KUALA LUMPUR, a group of university students launched a campaign to voice their dissent over the Bersih 2.0 rally.

Suara Keamanan Mahasiswa secretariat head Muhamad Mukhlis Maghribi, 24, said the group was formed to show that not all undergraduates supported the rally.

He said the group had 167 members from 16 universities and was not aligned with any political party.
