Muslim Sex offender better than Non-Muslim Saint?

Malaysians complicity in paedophilia

By Mariam Mokhtar

It's shocking to learn that a MARA maths scholar jailed for child porn in UK in 2015, is pursuing a postgraduate course at UKM here today

In May 2015, the rakyat was outraged, when a MARA maths scholar, Nur Fitri Azmeer Nordin, who was studying at Imperial College, was arrested, tried and charged with producing and possessing thousands of “Category A” images, depicting penetrative sex with minors.

The British Metropolitan police said that Nur Fitri had amassed around 30,000 images of child pornography which they described as some of the most extreme they had witnessed.

Today, Nur Fitri has re-surfaced, and Malaysians will be shocked to learn that he is pursuing a postgraduate course at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM).

According to news reports, the former maths prodigy was scheduled to complete his Master's degree, but officials at UKM upgraded him, because he was "excellent", a conscientious student and was qualified for PhD level.

The UKM professor's attitude is both unacceptable and irresponsible. Are there no howls of protest from other members of the university board? Is there no consideration for Nur Fitri's fellow students, especially those who may have children? Have the opinions of the university union and the faculty members, been sought? Are they even aware that they have a paedophile in their midst?

Nur Fitri's professor may think that his pupil's past is not important and irrelevant, but many postgraduate students are married and have young children. They may unwittingly invite him home, for social events, parties or university family days.

It is alleged that paedophiles will befriend the families, to gain the trust of the adults. Then, a child may be left alone with the paedophile, enabling him to take indecent photos or abuse the child.

Malaysians will recall the furore caused by the paedophile, in 2015. Despite being sentenced to five years in jail, MARA officials and the former Rural and Regional Development Minister, Shafie Apdal, said that they would appeal against Nur Fitri’s five-year sentence.

The then Mara chairman, Annuar Musa, wanted Mara to give him a second chance. Malaysian citizens were furious and showed their anger in an online petition.

Are MARA officials oblivious of the crime? Are they heartless and unable to comprehend the seriousness of the crime?

The victims of child pornography do not get a second chance. Their images are circulated and shared around the world by these depraved paedophiles.

The then IGP, Khalid Abu Bakar, was adamant that a sex offender's list was unnecessary. According to an online newspaper, he said, "It’s not a problem for us. But as I said we already have a criminal registry, so it serves the same purpose with a sex offenders' registry.

“To me the existing criminal record registry is already enough. If we set up another registry for those involved in sexual crimes it would overlap.”

His views were opposed by the erstwhile Foreign Minister, Anifah Aman, who strongly supported the need for a sex offenders' register, especially for the perpetrators of crimes against children. He said that the list would enable the police to monitor the perpetrators, easily.

Anifah also confirmed that his ministry would not intervene, in the English court, to reduce Nur Fitri's sentence. He warned students that they had a duty to focus on their studies and preserve the image of the nation. He also criticized the actions of those wanting to help Nur Fitri, despite his "serious and inhumane crime".

In addition to the final tabling of the sex offenders' list, four years ago, the then Minister for Women, Community and Family Development, Rohani Abdul Karim, said that the Sex Offender's Registry would list the names, identity card numbers, photographs and particulars of the offences. She also said that this information would be made freely available to the public.

So, is Nur Fitri on the Sex Offender's Register? Will his classmates be told? Will the staff be made aware of his past and the risks they may face?

  1. Donald Trump,the POTUS is also a paedophile.He was a frequent buddy,buddy of Jeffrey Epstein with his underage girls.

    Maybe the officials of UKM thought that if the Americans do not mind having a president,who raped dozens of underage girls,it is okay to upgrade a paedophile to from a master's to PHD course.

    Do not forget that a statutory raper was once forgiven because he was a bowling star.Now we also have an extremist preacher who is wanted by his own government,given protection by our very own government.Of all people an religious extremist who is accused of money laundering and brainwashing militants into suicide bombers?

    Ha ha ha,we thought that Donald Trump was a sick sex maniac.What about our own leaders?Sickos?
