KUALA LUMPUR: Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh has denied any involvement of his ministry in debater Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahim’s cancelled talks at two universities, adding that the institutions involved had been given autonomy by the ministry.

“So it’s their decision. They have the right to decide whom should come in and whom should not come in,” Idris told reporters outside parliament on Wednesday.
