When Tan Sri Khalid suggested for UiTM be opened to non-Malays and non-bumis, there were many reactions arise among UiTM members. Mostly, they were angry. But there are some who seems like the idea but ended being criticised by others. If you ask me, I would say, let UiTM be like today.
What happened last week is a great scene for me. I saw students talked about how fortune of Malays to have this special privileges. They raised their concerned for the Malays, not only for them, but also for the future’s benefits too. I got friends who always have crappy talks, but appeared over matured when speaking their minds regarding UiTM issues.
Night before the Shah Alam’s campus rally to the Selangor State Secretariat building, there were students had a convoy around the campus and shouts Malay’s rights. The next day, they walked to the building with pride being a UiTM student. Certain faculties even gave their students a leave on class to let them join the convoy.
Well, the latest ‘demonstration’ by UiTM student that I heard is at UiTM Bukit Mertajam campus. Some consider demonstration at this place is serious. Very serious, especially for the Pakatan Rakyat. The demonstration by students at the area will affect the Permatang Pauh election as Malay voters confidence is very important there. I’m not on any political side but, if this continue to happen, the PKR will have a weak point here. So, a call for Tan Sri Khalid to say his sorry is important for the sake of Malays, Bumiputera, UiTM, and the so much hope towards political changes.
