Bravo UiTM. Keep up the good work and continue to do so.

UiTM or Mara Universiti of Technology (its initial was jokingly mentioned as Universiti Ini Tolong Melayu by some racist kiasu who are unsatisfied with the government's aim to help raise the education standard of the Malays) had been established in 1956. Ignore the racists kiasus because they would love to see an uneducated Bumiputera which they can ride on like a cow.

Who else will help the Malays if the government does not help them because other races including the racists kiasus who are rich will never lift a finger for someone who is not of their own race.

We have to study and continue to do so regardless of our age because Islam promotes studying and the importance of it even by the first verse Iqra which was given to our prophet Muhammad s.a.w.

UiTM is Malaysia's premier institution of higher learning that has experienced phenomenal growth since its inception in 1956. The university has expanded nationwide with 4 satellite campuses, 15 branch campuses, 9 city campuses and 19 affiliated colleges. With this vast network and a workforce of 15 000, the university offers more than 300 unparalleled academic programmes in a vibrant and inclusive environment. It is also home to almost 120,000 students comprising of only bumiputeras.

Therefore, the news in Bernama titled "UiTM offers needy workers diploma courses for free" dated 28th June 2010 is a good news indeed.

Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin, the Higher Education Minister had announced that Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) if offering needy workers the chance to pursue diploma courses for free through long distance and off-campus programmes nationwide.

Eligible workers will have to undergo a pre-diploma programme first before they would be offered suitable diploma courses based on their results and will be opened to all needy workers regardless of age as part of the UiTM's corporate social responsibility (CSR).

60,000 new students registered at the UiTM this semester bringing the total number of students nationwide to 160,000.

UiTM enrolled about 5,000 students from poor families, who did not fare well in their Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) for a six-month pre-diploma programme for free at its campuses nationwide.

This programme should be continued every year so that poor students from needy family will have the chance for a betterment of their lives because only education will provide that for them.


  1. Universiti ini Tolong Melayu? Tak kalau diorang nak beri jolokan itu, tak ada apa yang perlu orang Melayu rasa malu. Kalau kita dituduh racist, takpe, berbanggalah dengan gelaran racist. Aku sendiri cukup bangga sebagai racist Melayu. Semua bangsa dalam dunia ni racist pada tahap2 tertentu. Racist secara positif tak salah. Kita pertahahan hak bangsa kita tapi tak sekat hak bangsa lain, macam di Malaysia.

    Kalau kita sekat hak Cina tentulah kita tak kasi mereka hak2 berikut: (i) hak kewarganegaraan Malaysia (ii) hak menguasai ekonomi Malaysia (iii) hak menguasai secara signifikan sebahagian politik Malaysia(iv) hak menjadi Menteri dalam kabinet Malaysia utk mewakili masyarakat Cina (v) hak untuk jadi Ketua Menteri, Datuk Bandar dan Pengerusi Perbadanan Kerajaan di beberapa negeri di Malaysia (vi) hak untk menjadi Ketua Polis di beberapa negeri di Malaysia (vii) hak untuk membentuk parti politik Cina dan keCinaan (viii) hak untuk mempunyai sistem pendidikan Cina yang dipaksa ke atas negara Malaysia (ix) hak untuk mempunyai suratkabar dan media Cina (x) hak untuk mengundi (xi) hak untuk mencabar hak2 istimewa orang2 Melayu (xii) hak untuk menghina orang2 Melayu dan Islam..dan macam2 hak lagi

    Semua atau sebahagian besar hak2 ini tak termimpi oleh orang2 Arab di Israel atau orang2 Melayu di Patani. Padahal mereka ini Bumiputra di negara2 itu sedangkan Yahudi dan Siam itu masing2 pendatang di Israel (dulu Palestin) dan Patani. Cina di Malaysia pula pendatang. Kita bukan racist macam Israel dan Siam. Mereka ni pertahan hak bangsa mereka tapi sekat hak bangsa lain..

  2. UiTM ? - always in my Heart........


  4. To quote the last paragraph of your article, it should be changed to:

    This programme should be continued every year so that poor MALAY students from needy MALAY familys will have the chance for a betterment of their lives because only education will provide that for them.

    While I applaud you on realising that education is key to a better quality of life, I ask you: Why not do the same for poor non-Malays? Name me ONE other university in the world that discriminates by RACE!

  5. Anon 10:16:00. I am appalled that you don't know.

    Look up The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Click on the Alumni there. You see anyone you know? You understand the Hebrew language used there?

    Click here at the alumni of Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

  6. Wake UP!:

    Why compare Malaysia to Israel? We should be comparing ourselves not to the Israels, Thailands, and Palestines of the world but instead, the USA, UK, Europe, Singapores and Japans.

    You want to be a first world country? Stop the discrimination, increase the education.

  7. Just look at UTAR. Most of the students in there are non Malays.

  8. Oh come on Wake UP!, you can argue better than that.

    You know very well that UTAR is a private university. And the fact that most of the students there are non-Malay highlights the very problem we are trying to solve: Malays are not as capable of getting into varsities on equal terms as non-Malays.

    How to solve this problem? Spend less money on bribes, Scorpene submarines, parliaments and 1Malaysia, and spend more money on EDUCATION. In the mean time, it does not mean you deny other races an education.

  9. Yes Anon 11:42:00. The Chinese who are rich are the ones on rampage offering bribes to the civil servants.

    To solve corruption, the police force and SPRM should catch those bribe givers.

    When have BN ever denied education to any race in Malaysia? Look whose talking?


Say whatever that is on your mind. Heck! This is a free country after all. If the racists Chinese can swear at the Malays as much as they want, we can do that as well.

However, I will not be held responsible to whatever that you have to say. The comment is solely the private opinion of the author.
