SERDANG, 9 March 2018 -  Prime Minister’s wife, Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor urged youths to be more responsible Internet users and able to distinguish true from fake news on the social media.

She said that informed youths adhering to cyber ethics are able to counter the negative cyber effects on peace, harmony and economic progress.

“Almost anyone can produce a content and share it with the whole world without any concerned about posting wrong information that can become viral on the social media.”

"The harmful content can threaten the economy, peace and harmony of the country,” she said when officiating the Student for Peace Leadership Conference with a theme ‘Nation Building through Culture of Heart’ at Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) here today.

The conference was organised by the UPM Student Representative Council (MPP) and Women’s Federation for World Peace Malaysia (WFWPM), a non-governmental organisation.

The conference instils the spirit of patriotism and love for peace, and the desire to become leaders in building the nation among public university students.

Also present were Senior International Advisor of the Women’s Federation for World Peace Malaysia, Dr. Yoo Chong Young; UPM Vice Chancellor, Prof. Datin Paduka Dato’ Dr. Aini Ideris; and the Yang Dipertua of UPM Students’ Representative Council (MPP), Aida Fitri.

Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah also launched the Laluan Sutera Keamanan untuk Universiti-Universiti (Silk Road of Peace for Universities) and met with several representatives of the Young Ambassadors for Peace from the country’s higher education institutions.
