By: Hailan Salamun and Saeeda Shah
This paper attempted to look at the focus of leadership practices of National Islamic Secondary School principals in Malaysia. It introduces the concept of Rabbani leadership that leadership practices are influenced by the leader’s moral judgement, in the pursuit of Allah swt, the Creator’s devine acceptance. Rabbani leadership places great importance to shared responsibilities and accountability and practices driven by internal drives alligned to concerns for godly/devine rightousness (ketuhanan), human development (keinsanan), and professional development. Leadership focus refers to dominance of practices exhibiting the specific concerns, be it developing spiritual self, the human self, or the professional self. The results show that the general focus of principals’ leadeship practices were all three aspects of moral judgement, that is concern for devine rightousness, concern for human development, as well as concern for professional development, or developing the professional self.

Article 5: Testing Hubris Hypothesis of Mergers and Acquisitions: Evidence from India
By: Malabika Deo and Aasif Shah
This paper addresses the relevance of Hubris theory of mergers and acquisitions in the Indian context. Also, this paper apply event study methodology to examine the short-term market response to merger announcements in the Indian banking and information technology industry. The overall findings report interesting although not surprising results. Hubris hypothesis which states that that the shareholders of the bidding firms would incur loss on merger announcements does not hold well in the Indian perspective. The findings demonstrate the contrary effect. The bidding firms at least do not fall in deficit from the merger deals and hence mergers and acquisitions could not be seen as a risky investment for their shareholders.
Keywords: Hubris hypothesis, mergers, acquisition, India
