Malaysian higher education?

Reference materials used in the controversial slides for the Tamadun Islam dan Tamadun Asia (Titas) subject in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) recently, do not have credibility and are not authentic to represent the traditions and religious beliefs of the Hindus and Sikhs.

In a statement, UTM's vice-chancellor Professor Wahid Omar said this was the assessment made by the Indian Civilisation Independent Expert Committee appointed by the university to assess the contents of the slides for the course, which created a controversy.

Wahid said the committee, which comprised Professor Zaid Ahmad and Associate Professor Sarjit Singh from Universiti Putra Malaysia, as well as Professor M Rajantheran from Universiti Malaya, unanimously found too many factual errors in the two slides.

"At the same time, there were too many judgmental elements in the slides and this is not in line with the spirit of the Titas course introduced in tertiary institutions to foster understanding and harmony among a multi-racial and multi-religious society," he said.

How the f**k did UTM employ such "experts"?

By the way, has anyone been sacked yet?


Then it's hardly surprising that the following also happened:

Malay Mail Online - Now TITAS teaches Osama may not be real, 9/11 possible conspiracy theory

I'm not Osama bin what's-his-name?
I'm actually Santa Claus in my younger days (hair & beard still black)

KUALA LUMPUR, June 28 ― An Islamic and Asian Civilisation Studies (TITAS) lecturer from a local private university taught today that Osama bin Laden might not have existed and the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against the US could have been a conspiracy theory, according to a student in the class.

The student who requested anonymity said the TITAS lecturer at the university’s Klang Valley campus told him and some 100 students in class this morning that the 2001 suicide airplane attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City were used by the West as an excuse to persecute Muslims.

“He said that Osama could have been a creation, that he didn’t really exist,” the student told Malay Mail Online.

“He commented on how in his videos, Osama only speaks ‘3 seconds of Arabic’ and then everything else was in English,” he added.

According to the student, the TITAS lecturer, when explaining the September 11 attacks, told students to “never believe everything Western media says, you should do your own reading on the matter”.

He also reportedly said “no religion is responsible for acts of terrorism or violence”.

Hmmmph, what will Titas teach next?

Tits and ass?


  1. Next would be that IS/ISIL/ISIS/Daesh is a CIA conspiracy, some kind of 'red flag' operation (for which your sweetie blogger HA is a firm believer) a similar excuse for the white man to wage war in the region.

    The 911 conspiracy theory (and the tale of Jewish staff of the twin towers being absent on that day) has many believers among Malaysians (including Mahathir).

  2. fuyoh.. equating titas with sexy pose, tits & ass.. in this last 7 days of Allah's month? please tolong hormat ckit la? what can i say? kt is not unknown for his 'benthic trawling' writing style! he didn't really care or specify whether he is actually attacking the religion, race, nationality, institution or the individual. he sapu bersih..all in one.. ha ha..

    be it as it may, i am more inclined to see 911, perhaps, as a false flag or pseudo operations. dan adakah bahawasanya osama bin laden itu hanya satu fatamorgana? something new for me lah..interesting ya.. perhaps i should give it a thought or two.. ha ha
