Najib urges youths to think critically
SHAH ALAM: Malaysian youths should adopt higher thinking skills and not be influenced by negative comments spewed by certain quarters on the internet, the Prime Minister said.
Datuk Seri Najib Razak said the younger generation must be able to think critically and be able to differentiate the false and true remarks that were made on social media.
"Young minds should be able to think critically and adopt higher thinking skills because there are a lot (of allegations) all over the social networks. We do not want leaders, who have good acting and oratory skills and blame others without proper facts, to influence the young adults.
“It is simple, you think logically, Malaysia would not be where it is without our Government. Malaysia is not a failed country. We have a good success story for the past 55 years," he said after launching the Malaysian Young Thinkers Convention at Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Saturday.
