Mahidol University

Yesterday, the court jester Abdul Razak Musa was trying to belittle Dr. Pornthip about Mahidol University (where she earned her degree) as not being recognized by Malaysia.

I was curious to know where Thailand’s Mahidol University stand against the crème de la crème of Malaysian public universities. And below, these are my findings:

Now I don’t need to explain here that none of the Malaysian universities could play first fiddle to Mahidol University in the rankings! Because of this moron, Malaysia is definitely on the map tagged with the label Bodohland!

And if we examine just Thai universities, Mahidol is second only to Chulalongkorn University, Thailand's oldest and one of the country's most prestigious universities.

Non-Malays are not questioning the rights of Malays when they ask for what they think they deserve, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Nazri Aziz said today. "They are merely asking for what they think they deserve. For example, if a non-Malay student with 9As and comes from a poor family asks for a scholarship, what is wrong with that? He deserves it, and it’s a valid request," he said. "So it does not make sense when people say such valid requests are questioning the rights of the Malays". Either Nazri is getting to be less stupid by the day or he has mastered the art of keeping his mouth shut unless he has something worthwhile to say! Either way, congratulations, Nazri, for saying something sensible!
