NILAI – Negeri Sembilan Islamic Religious Council (MAINS) sponsored students are not sent to Yemen, said its chairman Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan.
“MAINS sponsored students are sent to Jordan, Egypt and Morocco.
“I am not aware of other people or private students from Negeri Sembilan who may be living in Yemen,” he told a press conference at Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) here today.
Earlier, he attended a bicycle presentation ceremony at Tuanku Najihah Sports Complex.
Also present were State Secretary Datuk Mat Ali Hassan, Chairman of USIM Board, Tan Sri Dr Abdul Shukor Husin and USIM Vice Chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Musa Ahmad.
Mohamad said the state government was gradually reducing the number of MAINS sponsored students to Egypt.
“We want to reduce the number of students to Egypt and will probably stop sending in the next five to six years due to the uncertain situation in the country,” he added. – BERNAMA
