UPM Chinese Student's Hassle - What seems to be the trouble there?
Thanks be to Malaysiakini for providing us this revealing video interview of another UPM Chinese student who has been hauled up by the UPM Security Department on the 22nd of August, 2007 on charges of being anti-establishment and other charges that he has been accused of?
I am perplexed as to what is taking place in UPM?
Instead of being renowned for academic achievements, this Malaysian university seems hellbent in achieving a different kind of records that is actually not something to be proud of?
UPM surely stands as the top candidate for the Malaysian university which has had the most cases of hassling it's own students especially the Malaysian Chinese ones.
I have learned that there exist two camps of Chinese students there in UPM. One representing students who are there just to study and graduate in whatever fields they are studying in and another that is prone to protest and demonstrate on behalf of opposition political parties especially from the DAP.
The UPM university administrators must either be having nightmares handling these volatile group of Chinese students and try to nip such student activism in the bud thus coming out seeming to be anti-Chinese or just have some hidden agenda brewing within its campus grounds.
Is there any special category for the Malaysian university with the most student problems?
UPM sure seems to be the top running candidate for such a category if there is one?
Would sure appreciate any feedback from the UPM students reading this.
Please let us know what is the real deal there regarding these constant hassling of the Chinese students there?
