SKANDAL UM : Kuasa autonomi UM uruskan isu dalamannya – Khaled

Oleh ROZAID A. RAHMAN

KUALA LUMPUR: Menteri Pengajian Tinggi, Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin berkata, beliau menyerahkan kuasa penuh kepada Naib Canselor Universiti Malaya (UM), Datuk Dr Ghauth Jasmon untuk menyelesaikan isu panas berhubung dakwaan penyelewengan dan skandal yang melanda Jabatan Pengajian India, Fakulti Sastera dan Sains Sosial.

“Salah satu tujuan utama kita meminda Akta Universiti dan Kolej Universiti adalah untuk memberi kuasa autonomi kepada universiti menentukan kemajuan dan halatuju baru yang ingin mereka lakukan dengan pihak kementerian berfungsi sebagai pemudahcara,” kata beliau kepada mStar Online ketika ditemui di sini.

Khaled berkata demikian ketika diminta mengulas isu berhubung pelantikan ketua jabatan yang baru, skandal yang melanda jabatan berkenaan dalam pemeriksaan kertas tesis calon PhD dan juga laporan yang disediakan oleh pejabat naib canselor kepadanya tentang jumlah penerima ijazah dengan kepujian kelas pertama pada kadar yang sangat luar biasa.

Menteri Pengajian Tinggi itu berkata, beliau percaya pejabat naib canselor UM mempunyai asas-asas yang tertentu dalam merencanakan halatuju mana-mana jabatan dan juga fakulti serta menentukan siapakah yang wajar menerajui jabatan berkenaan tanpa perlu orang luar mempolitikkannya.

“Saya juga percaya siasatan yang dilakukan atas apa jua isu dan masalah yang timbul di jabatan berkenaan adalah untuk mencari kebenaran dan menegakkan integriti UM sebagai sebuah institusi pengajian tinggi negara yang berwibawa,” kata beliau.

Isu dan kontroversi di Jabatan Pengajian India mula menjadi perbualan hangat apabila pihak pentadbiran UM melantik seorang bukan dari keturunan India untuk menerajui jabatan berkenaan. Secara tradisinya, Jabatan Pengajian India diketuai oleh seorang pensyarah berketurunan India.

Bagaimanapun, Dr Ghauth Jasmon dalam satu laporan lengkapnya kepada Menteri bertarikh 30 Julai lalu telah menyatakan bahawa pertengkaran dan pertikaman lidah di antara lapan kakitangan akademik di jabatan berkenaan berhubung siapa yang lebih layak menerajui jabatan itu adalah punca mengapa seorang bukan India terpaksa dilantik sebagai pemangku ketua buat sementara waktu.

Tindakan tersebut mendorong MIC untuk turut campur tangan dengan mendesak supaya jawatan tersebut dikembalikan kepada seorang pensyarah keturunan India sebagaimana tradisi sebelum ini.

MIC juga telah menghantar satu rombongan yang diketuai oleh Setiausaha Agungnya, Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam menemui Dr Ghauth pada 30 Julai lalu untuk menyatakan pandangan dan pendirian parti itu berhubung isu berkenaan.

Kontroversi di jabatan itu juga tidak hanya berkisar kepada soal siapa yang patut dilantik menjadi ketua tetapi juga turut dikaitkan dengan terdapatnya satu penyelewengan dalam urusan pemeriksaan tesis calon doktor falsafah (PhD) dan juga penganugerahan ijazah sarjana muda dengan kepujian kelas pertama pada jumlah yang sangat luar biasa.

Kedua-dua isu tersebut dibongkar apabila satu siasatan dalaman dilakukan atas arahan Dr Ghauth baru-baru ini.

Syariah Judges may make their judgment accordingly to Hukum Syarak :World Class Higher Education in Malaysia: USIM Third Year LAW Undergraduate

 

 

Sample answer by USIM LAW undergraduate 1050624

 

Civil court have no jurisdiction to preside over claims for Harta Sepencarian among Muslim since Shariah Court have the power to divide the said property by the court consideration and discrection. The Court have a power to order division of harta sepencarian as it’s stated on section 58 of IFLA 1984. This section provide the power of court to exercising for division of the property. Clause (4) of the section also give the power to the court to take into consideration the contribution made by the parties during marriage and also the need of the minor children of the marriage. This section clearly illustrated to us that the Syariah Court have enough jurisdiction to make sure that the harta sepencarian will be devided equally among the both parties.

 

In article 121 (1) A of Federal Constitution also provide the power of Syariah Court in order to give judgment in the case without any interference from civil court. Since our country have the unique law that consist of two court the jurisdiction of each court should not be have any interference by the other court. The jurisdiction of Syariah Court is to give a muslim an opportunity to be tried in Islamic law esspecially in family matters. The power of Syariah Court to settle any dispute among Muslim should not be interfere by any other parties. The amendment of article 121 of Federal Constitution give a big effect to the jurisdiction of Syariah Court to give the judgment. This article avoid the power of Civil Court to re-examined the Syariah Court judgement. It is also give a rise that the Syariah Judges may make their judgment accordingly to Hukum Syarak without any hesitate that their judgment will be re-examination by the Civil Court judges that is not have a back ground of Islamic Law.

IPTA ajar subjek keusahawanan – Berita Harian

IPTA ajar subjek keusahawanan

KUALA LUMPUR: Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi mahu subjek keusahawanan diterapkan dalam semua bidang pengajian di institut pengajian tinggi awam (IPTA) dengan jumlah jam kredit ditambah.

Menteri Pengajian Tinggi, Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin, berkata usaha itu dapat melatih lebih ramai siswazah menjadi usahawan berjaya serta meletakkan bidang keusahawanan sebagai pilihan kerjaya utama selepas tamat pengajian.

“Secara tidak langsung, usaha itu dapat mengatasi masalah pengangguran di kalangan siswazah yang sebelum ini bergantung kepada ‘kerja makan gaji’ serta membantu merancak pertumbuhan ekonomi negara,” katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian pada sidang media selepas melancarkan Pusat Pembangunan Usahawan Siswazah Malaysia (Pusmal) dan pelancaran awal projek ternakan ikan sangkar di sini, semalam.

An Observation

Orang miskin selalunya berlagak

Orang yang tak ada apa-apa, merekalah yang paling angkuh dan sombong

Ada orang, miskin segala-galanya,miskin ilmu, miskin budi, miskin taqwa

Saya pernah terbaca Allah membenci orang miskin yang sombong lagi bakhil

Kemiskinan itu membawa kepada kekufuran

 Belajar agama bertahun-tahun, unta lagi pandai dan tawadhu….

However, there are conditions.

An applicant must be unemployed, retrenched, without regular income or a fresh graduate.

The aid, part of the second economic stimulus package announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in March, would be opened to those who are below 45 (during the time of application) from now, compared to age 35 for applicants for Masters programme and 43 for PhD applicants.

Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Norden, in a written reply to a question from Tan Sri Ong Ka Ting (BN Kulai), as to whether the Government would extend the aid to local institutions like Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman, said the applicants would also need to have a CGPA2.50 now instead of CGPA2.75 initially.

There are 10,000 places for Masters and 500 for PhD. At the Parliament lobby, Deputy Higher Education Minister Dr Hou Kok Chung said 3,377 applications for Masters and 225 for PhD had been approved until this month.

‘Estrangement and the strangers’

http://www.islamweb.net/ver2/archive/article.php?lang=E&id=151300

The Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said: “Islam began as something strange, and it will return to being something strange, so give glad tidings to the strangers.” [Muslim]

The meaning of ‘strange’ in the Hadeeth:

Many times in many situations the people that follow the religion of Allah feel a sense of not belonging, of being out of place, of not fitting in, or, in other words, of being strange. This feeling is normal when being among non-Muslims, but, unfortunately, this feeling sometimes also occurs when one is among his fellow Muslims. A person sees his brothers and sisters doing acts that are contrary to Islam, or taking part in innovations that sometimes even border on Kufr (disbelief), yet he feels that he does not have enough power or courage to stop them.

Some Muslims, especially if they do not have enough Taqwa (piety) or Islamic knowledge, buckle under the pressure of their peers and join in these acts, knowing that this is not what Allaah wants them to do.

However, feeling helpless, since it seems that they are alone in their ideas and without any support to help them do what is right, they succumb to such pressures.

They should take consolation in the verses of the Quran and in the statements of the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) describing this estrangement.

Why have they been called ‘strangers?’

Allah Says (what means): “So why were there not among the generations before you those of enduring discrimination forbidding corruption on earth – except a few of those We saved from among them…?” [Quran 11: 116] This verse speaks of the few people on earth, the “strangers”, who prohibit mankind from evil. These are the same people the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) spoke about when he  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said: “Islam began as something strange, and it will return to being something strange, so give glad tidings to the ‘strangers’.” [Muslim]

The Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) was asked: “O Messenger of Allaah, who are those strangers?” He  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) replied: “Those who reform the people when they become corrupt.” [Abu ‘Amr Ad-Daani]. In another narration, the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said in response to the same question: “They are a small group of people among a large evil population. Those who oppose them are more than those who follow them.” [Ibn ‘Asaakir]

These praiseworthy people are called ‘strangers’ since they are a small minority among mankind. Thus, Muslims are strangers among mankind; the true believers are strangers among Muslims; and the scholars are strangers among the true believers.

In reality, however, their estrangement is only because they are the minority and it is not because their actions and beliefs are strange. This is what Allaah Says what means: “And if you obey most of those upon the earth, they will mislead you from the way of Allah. They follow not except assumption, and they are not but falsifying.” [Quran 6: 116]

 Allah also Says what means: “And most of the people, although you strive [for it], are not believers.” [Quran 12: 103] and (what means): “…And indeed, many among the people are defiantly disobedient.” [Quran 5: 49]

Therefore, Allah, The All-Knowing Creator, knows that most of mankind will not follow the truth. Only a few will be set apart that truly and correctly believe in Him; they are the ‘strangers’ from among mankind.

The strangers in belief, however, and the strangers in character and actions are in reality the majority of mankind, for they are strange to Islam and to the laws of Allah.

There are various types of estrangement, of which some are praiseworthy, some are blameworthy, and some are neither praiseworthy nor blameworthy. We will discuss these categories below.

The various types of estrangement:

The first type is that of the “People of Allah and His Messenger  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention )“, who were mentioned previously. This estrangement is praiseworthy because it has been praised by Allah and His Messenger  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ). Therefore, this kind should be sought after and its people must be supported. 

These ‘strangers’, then, are the true believers, because they only worship Allah, and they do not follow any path except the path of the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ).

Thus, it is apparent that this estrangement does not cause its bearer any discontent. Rather, it is a comforting estrangement, a solace to the believers. The believer knows that Allah and those who believe are with him.

Allah, Almighty, sent His Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) to people because they had strayed. There were those who worshipped rivers, trees, idols, and there were Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians. Islam, when it first appeared among people, was strange to them. If a person from among them accepted Islam, he would be shunned and even tortured by his family and his tribe. He would live as a stranger among his own people. Eventually, however, Islam spread far and wide. Then the Muslims became stronger and more numerous, so much so, that the strangers were those who did not accept Islam.

But later, Satan deceived people again. Many people abandoned Islam, thus those who remained true believers became strangers again, just as when Islam began.

The Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said that this nation would be divided into seventy-three groups, all of which would go to Hell except the one Saved Group (i.e. those who follow Allah and His Messenger  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention )).

The true believer should be prepared to resign himself to the life of a stranger among his people, just like his predecessors who accepted Islam were treated by their people.

The second type of estrangement, is the blameworthy one, for its people are the evil sinners, the ignorant and the arrogant from among mankind. Their estrangement is due to their refusal to follow the right path of Allah and His Messenger  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ). This type is the estrangement of not conforming to the religion of Islam and, as such, it will remain strange even if its followers are numerous, its power is strong, and its existence is widespread. These are the strangers to Allah.

The third type of estrangement is, in essence, neither praiseworthy nor blameworthy. It is the type that a traveler experiences when he travels to a different country, like a person who lives in a place for a short period of time, knowing that he has to move on. One aspect of this estrangement is that all of us, whether we realize it or not, are strangers in this life, for we will all go one day to our permanent abode in the Hereafter. This is the meaning of the Hadeeth of the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) when he  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) told ‘Abdullaah Ibn ‘Umar  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him: “Live in this world as though you are a stranger or a wayfarer.” Thus, this category of estrangement has the potential to become a praiseworthy one, if we realize the meaning of this statement of Allaah’s Messenger  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ).
