Jihadist recruiting active at UTM and elsewhere in Malaysia

Gleaned this enlightening info from the net. Much of this I already knew; this source from Australia merely confirms it:

The success of the Hizb ut-Tahrir group in Malaysia was seen as potentially a major “radicalising influence” that Australia should keep an eye on.

Dedicated to establishing Islamic rule by overthrowing Western governments, Hizb ut-Tahrir is established in Sydney and has been recruiting new members at local university campuses.

The New South Wales Government publicly asked for the organisation to be banned last year, but then-federal attorney-general Philip Ruddock rejected the calls.

“According to Western diplomats and Malaysian political commentators, the group has already made inroads into Malay society and is now actively recruiting from prominent tertiary education institutions such as the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM),” the report said.

It said the university was “a significant past source of both al-Qaeda and JI militants”.

It shouldn't surprise anyone in Malaysia that the jihad continues to find fertile ground--not to mention a lot of recruits--in Malaysia. Remember, Malaysia is a country where you find politicians like this guy and police chiefs like this guy (who both threaten kufr to not criticize Islam).

Even though the politician is nominally in the opposing political coalition and the police general is nominally non-political, both in reality fight for the same cause. That cause is Islam.
