Police monitor university students under IS influence

Malaysia's police are working together with universities across the country in a bid to suppress Islamic State or IS influence among their students, reports Bernama.

Speaking at the 12th annual Police Undergraduate Voluntary Corps (Kor SUKSIS) graduation ceremony on 21 August, Deputy Inspector-General of Police Noor Rashid Ibrahim said there was a small population of students with inclinations towards the terror group's ideology.

"These students express their interest in the group through social media platforms like Facebook by ‘liking’ their posts and sharing them on their own pages," said Noor Rashid. He added: "We will counsel them early so as to avoid them from getting involved more seriously in IS activities."
