Raj ran away from Australian National University [ANU], so he claimed, because he found his supervisor and ANU's distinguished Professor Brij Lal "an mediocre academic", and Qiliho failed to show up for the much publicized study trip at the Australian Staff College when he found out that he was most likely to be denied a place and was also going to be arrested and charged for assaulting and spitting at Professor Lal at the
RFMF's military barrack! Raj is yet to respond to claims that he was behind the arrest, assault, deportation and banning order against Professor Lal and his wife from Bainimarama-Khaiyum's Fiji!
“Mr. Raj joins the Commission with a wealth of experience having served as an academic and a record of constructive engagement with civil society, State and the international community in the field of human rights, governance and democracy. Mr. Raj’s expertise will greatly benefit the Commission to fulfil its mandated responsibilities enshrined in the 2013 constitution with additional scope of the ‘anti-discrimination’ provision to its portfolio.” Justice Mohamed Ajmeer, Chairperson of the Fiji Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Commission; This appointment is pursuant to section 18 (1) (a) of the Human Rights Commission Decree No. 11 of 2009
"I walked away from ANU for all sorts of reasons...Also, the intellectual trajectory of my work has shifted dramatically. I don't think that my then supervisor Prof. Brij Lal was best suited and theoretically trained to supervise. Incidentally, ANU is very anti theory and I was trained in the US by Gayatri Spivak the leading philosopher in Marxism, deconstruction and postcolonialism. I think Brij's work is mired in romanticism."
