MELAKA, Feb 28 – The Prime Minister’s wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor is disappointed and agrieved with those who use the internet to spread falsehood, slander and instigations to disrupt national peace. She said they were not making good use of the internet but saw it as a platform to condemn those they hated, be it leaders, public figures, members of the corporate sector and individuals.
“Therefore, I wish to advise members of the Girl Guides in the country to be smart internet users. Screen and check information obtained to determine if they are authentic or slanderous,” she said at the 2016 National World Memorial Day celebration themed ‘Connect’ at Dewan Seri Negeri here, yesterday.
Also present were Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris Haron and his wife, who is also a patron of the Melaka Girl Guides Association of Malaysia (PPPM), Datin Seri Fadilah Abdullah, PPPM Chief Commissioner Normala Baharudin and Melaka PPM president Datin Zainon Tun Ghaffar.
Elaborating, she said youths especially girls should be careful and protect themselves when communicating with unknown people on the internet. She added do not divulge any secret and personal information to people you don’t know on the internet to avoid untoward incidents taking place.
