PM says universities should allow students to express views

Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has said universities should allow their students to freely express views or criticisms, even of the prime minister or the government, writes Hana Naz Harun for New Straits Times.

The prime minister said such a view should be allowed as long as it was not insulting and did not contain elements of racism or extreme religious views.

“I have conveyed these recommendations to [Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed] Khaled [Nordin] and [Education Minister] Fadhlina [Sidek]. And they are receptive, especially the Higher Education Ministry. So universities can freely share their views, including remarks and criticism against the prime minister or the government.
