GEORGE TOWN: Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) has rescheduled its 54th convocation ceremony to avoid a clash with preparations for Deepavali.
Its chancellor Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Syed Putra Jamalullail, who is the Raja of Perlis, has consented for the ceremony to start on Oct 24 and end on Oct 27.
Initially, it was scheduled from Oct 25 to 28. Deepavali falls on Oct 29.
There were protests from Indian-based groups after the initial dates were announced.
“A total of 6,330 graduands will be conferred their scrolls throughout the eight sessions. The number will be validated by the University Senate by the end of the month,” he said in a statement yesterday.
Meanwhile, the Penang Hindu Association deputy president P. Murugiah said the university should be more sensitive towards the Hindu community.
“The dates are still too near to Deepavali as the eve is regarded as a very important day.
“Furthermore, most of the students are from outstation, and not all are from Penang.
“The university should consider the travelling time for these students to attend the convocation ceremony,” he added.
