Students back from Egypt can continue studies in Negri - The Sun Daily

SEPANG (Aug 27, 2013): The 10,000 Malaysian students in Egypt who are affected by the military coup can resume their studies soon at the Al Azhar University's branch campus in Negri Sembilan, Second Education Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh said.

"Qualified lecturers from various universities in Egypt, such as Al Azhar and Alexandria University, will be flown in to facilitate the studies here," he said when met at the KL International Airport (KLIA) today.

"The tuition and boarding fees will be borne by the university's local branch," he said, though declining to state the cost.

Idris was speaking to the press upon returning from a two-day trip to Cairo to sort out the students' studies with the Egyptian authorities.

He said Malaysia will also act as the hub for students from neighbouring countries evacuated from Egypt.

"We will host the international students who are affected by the turmoil in Egypt, who will be placed at Universiti Putra Malaysia soon to take their examinations," he said.

Currently, 1,300 students have arrived home out of 3,300 students being evacuated under Ops Pyramid II.

Two of them, brothers Zaim and Zufar, were welcomed by their relieved parents.

Their father Zeid Ismail said both he and his wife were extremely worried when they first heard of the military coup against President Mohammed Morsi in July, which resulted in bloodshed.

"I told my sons not to join the protest rallies there and reminded them that their duty was to study, not to revolt," said the 60-year-old farmer from Malacca, who is supporting their studies at Alexandria University, where both are medical students.

Recalling his experience, Zufar, 22, a fifth-year student, said the coup occurred near their rented apartment.

"I was taking my exam and a friend called me later to advise me not to return home.

"I had to seek refuge with another friend until the commotion died down the next day," he said.

The military regime imposed curfews from 7pm to 6am on weekdays and Sundays, and from 3pm to 6pm on Fridays, he explained, adding that there were protests after Friday prayers.
