CFM media statement - seminar at ui tm - 7 may 2013

  1. 1. 1 CHRISTIAN FEDERATION OF MALAYSIA (PERSEKUTUAN KRISTIAN MALAYSIA) 26 Jalan Universiti, 46200 Petaling Jaya, Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia Telefon / Faks : + 60 3 7957 1457 Email: cfmsia@yahoo.co.uk 7 May 2014 SEMINAR AT UNIVERSITY CLEAR ABUSE OF TRUST AND STEWARDSHIP CFM supports academic freedom, and the right of a public university such as the Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) to organise a public lecture on any topic, but academic freedom and public university facilities should not be used to present and promote skewered statements with no opportunity for rebuttal of facts. That is a clear abuse of trust and stewardship. If there is to be sincere and genuine academic freedom, then let us have an intellectual exchange with integrity instead of a one-sided presentation with arguably inaccurate information being disseminated as fact. Otherwise, yesterday's seminar at UiTM would be nothing more than hate speech and sectarian religious propaganda thinly disguised as academic freedom, which causes a great diminution of scholastic integrity, greater disservice to intellectual honesty, and greatest discredit to the reputation of the public institution. Yours sincerely, Rev. Dr. Eu Hong Seng, Chairman and the Executive Committee, The Christian Federation of Malaysia
