Stop slandering, insulting on social media – Ahmad Marzuk

KUALA LUMPUR: The community, especially netizens in this country, is being called upon to stop manipulating social media (medsos) as a medium to spread slander, slander and words mixed with insults and slurs on a contagious issue.

Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Datuk Ahmad Marzuk Shaary said social media should be used as a platform for the spread of preaching and Islamic morals.

“This easily happens due to the nature of social media itself which can hide a person’s identity through various settings such as anonymous and unseen and can be used to create various unknown fake identities,” he said when officiating celebration of Maulidur Rasul at the Federal Territories level 1444H here today.

Ahmad Marzuk said, the development has become a very dangerous virus in society, especially Muslims, and they are seen to be further away from the real moral values ​​of Islam.

“The act of spreading defamation on social media whether in the form of writing or illustration by sharing inaccurate information mixed with provocation and insult can create an unhealthy culture in the community.

“Determining whether a person is right or wrong depends on society’s acceptance, not judged through religious sharia,” he said.

He said defamation has now become a new norm that is generally accepted, while it reflects the decay of society’s morals and needs to be stopped immediately.

Meanwhile, the former Director General of Education Tan Sri Alimuddin Mohd Dom was crowned as the Main Figure of Maulidur Rasul of the Federal Territory at this celebration.

Alimuddin who is also the Chairman of the National Islamic Education Coordinating Committee, National Council for Islamic Religious Affairs (MKI) received the award for his devotional service and significant contribution in upholding the teachings of Islam and Islamic education in Malaysia, especially in the Federal Territories, including introducing Government Aided Religious Schools (SABK) as well as reviewing and upgrading the syllabus for the Malaysian Higher Religious Certificate (STAM) examination.

In addition, the general cleaning worker of Alam Flora Sdn Bhd, Arbaani Talib received the Special Individual Character Award for the high dedication and commitment he has shown throughout carrying out tasks that are not often undertaken or considered trivial or dirty by some of the community.

The Organization Category Special Award was given to the Saidina Abu Bakar As Siddiq Mosque, Bangsar (Mosque Category), Putra Al-Amin Surau, Putrajaya (Surau / Friday Surau Category), Rancha-Rancha National Secondary School, Labuan (National Secondary School Category), Salahuddin Al-Ayubi Religious Primary School, Kuala Lumpur (Religious Primary School Category) and Malaysian Charity Foundation Kuala Lumpur Branch (Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) Category).
