FRIDAY, 07th NOVEMBER – UMS Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Datuk Dr. Mohd. Harun Abdullah reminded students and staff of Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) not to get involved in any militant’s activities or movements, including the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
He said that the ISIS Group actions are extreme and does not reflect the true Islamic culture.
“Involvement in this militant activity is not only a drawback to the people that involved but also the nation. Extremisms are not the teaching of Islam.”
“UMS will not compromise on any students involved in any militant’s activity. However, so far UMS haven’t received any reports on the students nor staffs involvements in the activity,” he said to the media during the ‘Majlis Penyerahan Surat Tawaran Jawatan Tetap Bagi Kakitangan Bukan Akademik’ ceremony held at ‘Galeri Majlis’.
He also mentions that Sabah is lucky because the harmonious practises, living with diverse culture and traditions, have been instilled since a long time ago. The practise can be felt and experience even until today. -MA(JA)-
