Yes, you read that right!

Over the weekend on 25th November, Universiti Teknologi Mara’s (UiTM) Faculty of Administrative Science and Policy Studies and Baitul Fiqh at UiTM Seremban 3 campus organised a charity run.

Sounds pretty ordinary, right?



Well, for some unfortunate reason, they chose to name the event “Pedophile Charity Run”! What?!

Understandably, this caused a lot of confusion when a poster promoting the run began to circulate on social media. Seriously, what did they mean? Were they donating the proceeds of the run to pedophiles? Cannot be, lah!

The run drew a lot of reactions from netizens. Some of them pointed out the poor grasp of English some Malaysians seem to have despite years of education.

Well, according to Coconuts, UiTM’s Faculty of Administrative Science and Policy Studies has since apologised for the confusion and clarified that they organised the run to educate students about the issue.

Huh? Still doesn’t make things that clear, though… but it’s better than what we initially thought!



Some netizens also couldn’t help but bring up the recent controversial statement Federal Territories Minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor made about the university, implying that the university was for “slow learners“.

Well, at least they learnt their lesson now. Let’s hope they consult an English expert before finalising names for any of their future events! (Honestly, we’re just glad this run didn’t raise money for pedophiles. Phew!)
