KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- The shortage of facilities for people with disabilities (OKU) is one of the main reasons why many public and private institutions of higher learning are reluctant to accept disabled students.

International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) economics lecturer Prof Dr Ruzita Mohd Amin, who is also head of the university's Disability Services Unit, said the reluctance stemmed from concerns over their ability to meet the needs of OKU students.

"Their fear has unwittingly denied disabled students of the right to pursue tertiary education and it does seem as if universities are not giving equal opportunities to OKU students," she told Bernama.
