Social Problems May Send Wrong Message - Rosmah | 27/08/2010

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 27 2010 (Bernama) -- The prime minister's wife is most saddened by the rampant disposal of new-born babies, of late.

Such incidents were a reflection of the uncivilised nature of some in society, said Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, who described the culprits as cruel, mean and despicable.

Nevertheless, she said, rampant social problems in the country should not be taken lightly as they could send the wrong message to the world about Malaysia.

"It could also reflect the insensitive attitude of Malaysians in tackling the issues and thus, the image of Malaysians as a caring and generous society might be tarnished.

"While we are busy chasing blessings and discharging our religious obligations in the holy month of Ramadan, social problems are still rampant and terrible incidents occurred almost daily," added Rosmah.

She was speaking at a ceremony to present Aidilfitri donations organised by the Cheras Education Foundation (YPC).

Rosmah also called on the public, especially parents, to help the authorities and the government by monitoring their children's activities.

"Parents should give more attention to the religious aspect of their children to prevent untoward incidents which would add to existing problems," she said.

Meanwhile, YPC Aidilfitri donations worth RM75,000 were distributed to 444 students from 36 YPC-adopted schools today.

The students comprised mostly orphans and children from low-income families.

YPC chairman Datuk Wira Syed Ali Alhabshee said programmes organised by YPC were synonymous with the 1Malaysia concept as no certain group or race was sidelined, in a bid to generate the transformation under the 1Malaysia concept.

He said YPC would continue to help the government in empowering the education of future generations, through the implementation of motivational programmes for both the students and teachers, as well as through internet-based education programmes.
