DAP badly hurt by LTTE, UM issue may be diversion

If indeed the intent was to be heard, Wong could easily have held the demonstration outside the convocation hall where he would definitely have garnered attention without disrupting the graduation ceremony. Source (pic): FMT

Wong’s actions raise the question if he was incentivised by leaders of a political party to cast negative light on the Kongress Maruah Melayu (Malay Diginity Congress) by voicing dissatisfaction against UM vice-chancellor Datuk Abdul Rahim Hashim.

It is an open secret that both Lim Kit Siang and the DAP were against the congress despite the fact that the DAP is member of the ruling Pakatan Harapan with ministers sharing a stage with Mahathir in Cabinet.

The choice of venue, i.e., inside the convocation hall, jibes badly with Wong’s claim that the VC had ignored him all this while and the convocation was an avenue to be heard.

It is entirely possible that Wong contrived the whole drama to gain mileage so that the matter can be brought to national proportions to eclipse the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam issue.


SUBANG JAYA: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is right to say that Malaysians are free to demonstrate as they wish but should not disrupt formal ceremonies.

The Prime Minister, who expressed his disapproval at the actions of engineering student and activist Wong Yan Ke, was referring to the protest Wong held inside the Universiti Malaya convocation hall while a graduation ceremony was ongoing.




“We need to follow these rules; otherwise, there will be chaos. You can show those views

“I think this could be the stance the university is taking,” Dr Mahathir said, adding that the government will not interfere in the matter and that UM is free to make its own decision.

Being a former academician, I am of the opinion that Wong must be disciplined by the university and should not be supported by the academics’ union as his disruptive behaviour defamed the university.
