Universiti Malaya (UM) has formed a five-member panel to investigate allegations of racism against one of its lecturers, Deputy Education Minister P Kamalanathan announced today.
"I immediately contacted the honourable vice-chancellor Prof Dr Amin Jalaludin to seek clarification on the allegation.
"He was aware (of the allegation) and assured me that the university will not condone such behaviour from any staff," Kamalanathan posted on his official Facebook page.
He said the five-member panel would meet all the parties involved, including witnesses, before coming to a conclusion.
Following the investigation, he added, the university would issue a statement on its decision.
Kamalanathan was responding to a viral Facebook posting three days ago titled "Voice of an Indian student".
