Use 1Malaysia notebook for learning purpose, Rais tells recipients
PEKAN June 23 — Students who have been given the 1Malaysia Netbook for free are advised not to use it for negative purposes but to help them in their studies.
Information Communication and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said monitoring by teachers at school and by parents at home was vital to avoid misuse of the Internet for purposes that were wrong or immoral.
"Parents and teachers have a role to play in ensuring that the young do not view undesirable materials or upload them onto their websites as there are existing threats of exposure to pornography, lies and cheating through the Internet.” Rais said this after launching a Wireless Village programme and handing over 1Malaysia computer laptops to 645 secondary school students in the Pekan parliamentary constituency, at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Lepar, here, today.
He said the young should best use the Internet to change their way of thinking to become wiser, in tandem with rapid development of the technology itself.
In another development, Rais said the national broadband penetration was expected to reach 60 per cent by the end of this year.
He said at the moment, it was 58.4 per cent penetration, exceeding the target set since the National Broadband Initiative was launched in March last year.
The students and parents of the recipients of the 1Malaysia Netbook should be grateful towards the government for being so generous in giving the laptops to 645 students.
The netbook should be used to improve their knowledge and education when their parents installed the internet at home instead of becoming involved with political parties.
Prove to the government that the move to give free netbooks to students reaps the benefits when the students gained excellent results in their studies and will be able to continue their higher learning education to higher learning institutions locally and abroad.
Students should not get involved with illegal demonstrations as well. They should be concentrating on their studies by going for tuitions or to the library to enhance their knowledge rather than wasting time doing useless things.
The schools must dismiss the students caught going to the Bersih 2.0 illegal demonstrations to teach them a stern lesson that it is not worth it to do that. If you are dismiss from your school, will PAS champion your rights for the education that you deserve?
Chinese students are busy studying in the library that they do not know where the bus station is but the Malay students are busy wasting their time doing crappy things.
For instance, you will not see any Chinese going to the illegal demonstration as proven by the Bersih 1.0 in 2007. Most of the participants are PAS members who had been used by the others in Pakatan Rakyat to do their dirty job.
So, think and don't be used by those who wants to fulfill their dirty agenda to create chaos in the country by using a third party which is by using the unintelligent ones in PAS.
Concentrate in your studies and forget politics. You can always join and be a member of the political party that you like after you graduated and start working.
