BANGI, 1 Oct 2010 – A Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) adjunct professor has called on every Muslim to understand and give the correct view of an Islamic State which would enable the pursuit of knowledge and scholarship be given its rightful position in society.
Prof Dato’ Dr Abang Abdullah Abang Ali, Adjunct Professor at the Institute of West Asian Studies (IKRAB) said an Islamic State can provide the atmosphere where learning and research in Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) will thrive and only then can Islamic countries look forward to a future of successful development of those desciplines.
