Umno Strikes Back - Sanusi Junid Sacked As International Islamic University President
In his second term now and with two more years to serve, he said he received the letter, dated June 2, on Monday.
The letter was from the Sultan of Pahang, the constitutional head of the university, Sanusi said.
He had previously said he would not step down from the post, which he considered part of his “duty to God and service to the people.”
The former Kedah Mentri Besar said there had been speculation over his post after he had resigned from Umno, following former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s resignation on May 19.
On June 1, Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Khalid Nordin that there was no reason for Sanusi’s services to be terminated unless he “played politics” at campus. (The Star)
***** Umno couldn't directly hit out at the big man Dr Mahathir, so they whacked one of his underlings who had the 'temerity' to resign from Umno. More such petty moves on the cards? You bet!
