PETALING JAYA: A student from Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) was fined by university authorities for illegal parking and having a picture of PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat pasted on the student's car.
A picture of a clamped car with a ticket made rounds through social media after being posted on Nik Aziz's Facebook page, drawing in more than 10,500 likes and 1,400 shares a mere two hours into its publishing Thursday morning.
User comments mostly condemned the university authorities for stifling the student's right to political expression.
The offences listed on the summons reads, "Parking in an illegal area" and "Using a sticker of Tuan Guru Nik Aziz – Politics/PAS".
The incident was believed to have taken place in the Sri Iskandar campus, Perak.
According to a source, a flier was said to have been distributed earlier which disallowed university students from carrying political paraphernalia within campus.
UiTM officers in charge could not be contacted and other staff members refused comment.
