THE Community Communication Department (JKK), or J-Kom as it was known before this, is not going to be a propaganda unit for the federal government as the now-defunct Special Affairs Department (Jasa) was, its director-general Junaidi Abu Bakar said.

Junaidi, a former deputy vice chancellor for student affairs at Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI), was appointed to the post on July 21, he told The Malaysian Insight in an interview.
