Higher Education Minister Noraini Ahmad’s proposal to promote the use of Tiktok among youths during the movement control order (MCO) period could jeopardise youths’ mastery of language, said the Universiti Malaya Academic Staff Union (Pkaum).

In a media statement today that lambasted the minister’s move, the union’s secretary Noraishah Mydin Abdul Aziz said it was unfortunate that Noraini had zeroed in on youths keeping themselves entertained at home during MCO instead of focusing on making institutes of higher learning become the public’s hope to resolve problems caused by Covid-19.
