"Yussof Damulira is a recipient of the Brunei Government Scholarship pursuing the two-and-a-half years HND programme in Construction Management and Quantity Surveying since August 2011. Yussof is the fourth student of ITB to have embraced Islam this year"

Does this mean that to receive a scholarship (which also includes board and allowances) one has to convert to Islam ?

Any single conversion to Islam has to be questioned
as to the motives etc.
It is special when someone embraces something which you yourself Old Pom abhor or so you have indicated.
I'm surprised by your wishy-washy attitude.

Islam, a sham

Apparently you missed the irony. They claim that thousands are converting, then have a song and dance festival over 4??
