Perlis Raja Muda urges curbs on liberalism

(Bernama) – The Raja Muda of Perlis, Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail, said efforts must be made to contain liberalism and stop it from engulfing the younger generation.

He said its unrestricted spread, whether planned or otherwise, was dangerous and could change the country’s character and foundation nurtured since independence.

Speaking at the launch of the book “Ucapan Dasar Presiden Gabungan Pelajar Melayu Semenanjung (GPMS) Kebangsaan Sepanjang Zaman” and the launch of the “One Student, One Licence” programme, here last night, Tuanku Syed Faizuddin said he hoped that GPMS (Federation of Peninsular Malaysia Malay Students Associations) and its more than 400,000 members nationwide could play a role in containing its spread.

“GPMS needs ideas and new initiatives to ensure that the education agenda remains relevant and the younger generation can create a strong self identity in efforts to face the situation,” he said.

Meanwhile, GPMS president Jais Abdul Karim, when approached, said the 225-page book contains a collection of the speeches delivered by GPMS presidents since the federation was established in 1948.
