THE appointment of Education Minister Dr Maszlee Malik as president of the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) by its constitutional head, the Sultan of Pahang, has attracted a mixed response.

While many are convinced that he is qualified for the job, many others have also expressed their objection to the appointment, saying that it would affect IIUM’s autonomy as a university and conflict of interest would arise as he is also the Education Minister.
