BUKIT LANJAN: Crime prevention and education programmes in Malaysia now need to cover cyber crime


BUKIT LANJAN: Crime prevention and education programmes in Malaysia now need to cover cyber crime

Fraud cases in cyberspace ballooned by 20% in Malaysia last year compared with 2015.


Besides fraud, the top cyber crime were intrusion, spam and malicious code.

“It looks like Malaysians are using their cyber innovative minds for all the wrong reasons,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said the rising cyber crime rate means the traditional and conservative crime prevention and education programmes and campaigns need a total overhaul.

“Both state and federal governments must now take proactive measures to gather various professionals to brainstorm and come up with new strategies in anti-crime and education efforts that cover cyberspace,” he added.


Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Elecion (GE14), said the previous community crime prevention and education programmes and efforts “are obviously no more effective and outdated”.

He said the importance of the 21st Century digital era to a country’s socio-economic and political development “is obvious and cannot be denied”.

“Competency is irrelevant if the innovative minds of the rakyat (people) are focused on crime. Therefore, both state and federal governments, especially the Education and Home Ministries, have to start including the cyber space factor in their public education programmes.

“Failing to do so will affect investors’ interest in Malaysia. Who will want to invest in a country that has a high cyber crime rate?,” Syed Razak asked.

Cybercrime surge in Malaysia


BY ZUNAIRA SAIEED


PETALING JAYA: Cybercrime is growing in Malaysia, as statistics from CyberSecurity Malaysia show.

For example, fraud cases detected in cyberspace jumped 20% last year compared to 2015. Besides fraud, the top cyber crime were intrusion, spam and malicious code.

Data from Cybercrime Malaysia, an agency under the Science, Technology and Innovations Ministry, also show a total of 2,428 cybercrime incidences reported between January and April this year.

CyberSecurity Malaysia chief executive officer CEO Datuk Dr Amirudin Abdul Wahab pointed out that countering cyber crime will be increasingly challenging due to the exponential growth of connected devices.

According to market research company Gartner, there could be 20.4 billion Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices between now and 2020.

“When it comes down to adoption of IoT, we sleepwalk in the reality that somebody has secured it for us. With the connection of internet comes due diligence to use technology responsibly,” KPMG Malaysia head of cybersecurity Dani Michaux said.

The risks have been amplified by the interconnectivity of devices through IoT, say experts, who believe that the adoption of cyber security measures was slower than the advancement of technology.

The recent Wannacry malware attack is one example of a cybercrime that has hit 300,000 devices in 150 countries.

“The size of the organisation will reflect the amount of connectivity. The bigger the organisation, the more likely the company will be exposed to cyber attacks,” iboss Network Security senior vice president Simon Eappariello said."

BUKIT LANJAN: It’s now unsafe to eat out, too many fake foods being exposed globally


BUKIT LANJAN: It’s now unsafe to eat out, too many fake foods being exposed globally

https://youtu.be/3zolK56sBMU (VIDEO: Fake plain buns/cup cakes)

Fake foods have been exposed globally, especially in China, recently.

Suffice to say, it is now absolutely very risky to eat out as you may unknowingly be consuming fake food and thus jeopardise your or your children’s health. (View the above two attached video clips)

Even the simple plain bun/cup cake or bun with stuffing can be served or sold as fakes.

“In this modern world of science and technology, the unscrupulous businessmen or entrepreneurs can now resort to making or manufacturing fake foods to reap insane profits,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said the federal government, as a caring and responsible government, must take the lead and act even before such fake foods hit the domestic market, if it had not yet.

“They say prevention is better than cure. Taking precaution is also better than to be very, very sorry later,” he added.

Syed Razak a.k.a Pek Moh (White Haired) urged the federal government to urgently enact punitive laws to punish potential “evil” eateries and operators who resort to selling fake foods to reap “insane profits”.

“Such evil people must not be given a second chance. They must be jailed and then blacklisted for life in the food and beverage industry,” he added.


Fake beef
Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said such “evil people” should be given heavy punishments because “they inflict harm to human health and lives, especially children”.

He said Members of Parliament (MPs) must unite to push for harsher laws to punish potential fake food sellers or operators.


“Do it fast before such fake foods hit the domestic market and consumers,” he said, adding that MPs should treat this issue seriously and with urgency.

BUKIT LANJAN: Invest in property, you can’t go wrong



BUKIT LANJAN: Invest in property, you can’t go wrong

Have you read The Star Online report titled “World's costliest plot of land sold in Hong Kong for RM13bil”?

It was a multi-storey car park that was sold by the Hong Kong government for RM27,776 per sq ft!

“Ridiculous price isn’t it? But that’s reality,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said in areas and states where land was scarce, “it is only natural that property prices will shoot up like nobody’s business”.

“The same will happen, over time, in Penang, the Klang Valley and Johor. So, stop complaining and whining because that is the reality in a Laissez-faire world of supply and demand,” he added.

Syed Razak said the rakyat (people) should hold on to their “precious properties” for long-term financial gains, at least for their children or generations.

“Don’t start getting greedy and get cheated by all sorts of money games and multi-level financial or business schemes. If you have spare cash, spend it all on a property, and be patient,” he added.


Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said “you cannot go wrong on property investment if the location is hot”.

“Even if the location is not that hot, it will be over time,” he added.

World's costliest plot of land sold in Hong Kong for RM13bil


The Murray Road Car Park located in Admiralty. - SCMP

HONG KONG: Henderson Land Development, the property company owned by one of Hong Kong's wealthiest families, has bought the world's most expensive commercial land plot in downtown Central, beating out the mainland Chinese developers who had been dominating the city's real estate purchases in the past year.

Henderson Land will pay a record HK$23.28 billion (RM12.91bil) for the government's Murray Road commercial plot in Central, beating out eight rival bids, according to the Lands Department's data.

The plot, which can be developed into a commercial building with 465,005 sq ft of total gross floor area, translates to HK$50,064 (RM27,776) per sq ft, way above market expectations and professional valuations of between HK$15.7bil (RM8.71bil) and HK$22bil (RM12.21bil).

"Today's tender result sets a new benchmark for the local property market," said Denis Ma, head of research at JLL. "It will be interesting to see how this affects pricing in the property and stock markets."

The successful bid was Henderson's first in almost two years, as it and other Hong Kong developers had been priced out by aggressive mainland Chinese companies like HNA, which spent HK$27.2bil (RM15.09bil) over four months to snatch four parcels of land at the former Kai Tak airport.

A venture of mainland Chinese developers KWG Property Holding and Longfor Properties paid HK$7.23bil (RM4.01bil) on Tuesday for the latest Kai Tak plot to go on sale, 15% more than analysts' valuation.

For Murray Road, mainland Chinese bidders were mostly absent, snared by tightened remittance regulations to stem capital flight.

Henderson plans to develop the site, currently occupied by a five-storey public car park, into "a landmark building" scheduled for completion in 2022, according to a statement by the developer's vice- chairman Martin Lee Ka-shing, the youngest son of Hong Kong's second-wealthiest man Lee Shau-kee.

Total investment cost of the project may exceed HK$26bil (RM14.42bil) inclusive of the land cost. Henderson's shares closed 0.5% higher at HK$50.20 (RM27.85) before the tender result was announced.

"The building will likely attract strong occupier demand both from mainland Chinese firms and multinational corporations," said CBRE's head of research Macros Chan.

The record price came even after the Hong Kong Monetary Authority on May 12 ordered banks to cut their loans to developers to 40% of a site's value, from the previous 50%.

Expectations over the Murray Road plot had already spilled over to surrounding commercial properties, boosting capital values by as much as 11% ever since the government put the site – the first commercial lot in Central to go on sale in two decades – up for tender, said Ma.

A grade-A office unit at 9 Queen's Road in Central sold in April for HK$145.82mil (RM80.9mil), or a record HK$39,800 (RM22,084) per sq ft in transacted office price.

Bids for Murray Road were received from Sun Hung Kai Properties, Nan Fung Development, Cheung Kong Property (Holdings), Wheelock & Company, Chinese Estates Holdings and Hang Lung Properties.

Among mainland developers, bids were received from Shimao Property Holdings of tycoon Hui Wing Mau , as well as Chongqing-based CC Land Holdings. Both the firms are listed on the Hong Kong stock exchange. – South China Morning Post"

武吉兰樟讯:我们要科技和经济进步, 而放弃老年父母的成年人吗?




孝心经典

武吉兰樟讯:我们要科技和经济进步, 而放弃老年父母的成年人吗?

21世纪的孩子长大后是否会了解和维护儒家孝道哲学。

还有,20世纪末的孩子是否知道或者甚至听说过什么是孝道?

孝道是尊重父母,长辈和祖先的美德。

“我们现在听到很多家长说,当他们年老时太过期望孩子们的照顾或养儿防老是一个愚蠢的念头”民政党副议长赛阿都拉萨说。

他说:“尽管全球教育,科技和经济进步有所改善,但家庭和人道主义价值观已经进入了另一个阶段,实在令人遗憾。”

赛阿都拉萨表示,从星报网上阅读 “8旬老妇被孩子遗弃,卧病在床一个月” 的报道,感到非常难过。

“我们真的想要科技和经济进步,而忽视人类价值观和尊重被恶化吗?”



赛阿都拉萨是民政党第14届大选武吉兰樟州议席(N.37)协调人表示,因此马来西亚必须同等重视道德和公民教育。

“科技和经济的进步,而没有一个被尊重和负责任的成人社会将是什么?”

赛阿都拉萨敦促教育部调查并在必要时审查小学道德和公民教育大纲的有效性,以适应21世纪电子和科技时代的需求。

他补充说:“我们需要向年轻人灌输高度的道德和公民价值观,使他们成长为受尊重和负责任的成人,而不像中国的4个孩子遗弃80岁的母亲。”

以下是80岁老妇忘恩负义孩子的报导:

8旬老妇被孩子遗弃,卧病在床一个月



汕头讯:当地一家电视台报道,来自中国南方的一名80多岁老妇单独一人卧病在床一个月,她的4名孩子都没有照顾她。

根据汕头电视台报道,张銮美4月初在广东省汕头的家中不慎摔倒,头部受伤.

根据报导说,她偶尔得到邻居和“其他好心的人”的援助。

她丈夫多年前已经去世,她的两个儿子和女儿都没有和她一起生活。张銮美独居并一直在街上乞讨多年。

她的孩子都没有出现在家中,直到最近,当时在她的另一个城市工作的小女儿回到了汕头,送她去医院。

女儿说住在汕头的哥哥55岁,拒绝照顾他的妈妈。

“他没有来家里看妈妈,也没有给她钱,”她告诉电视台。 “他说他患有高血压所以不能来。他还说,如果妈妈去世也不算什么大事。”

女儿希望其他的兄弟姐妹能轮流照顾他们的母亲。 - 南华早报

BUKIT LANJAN: The days when kids were physically interacting and playing Cops & Robbers …


BUKIT LANJAN: The days when kids were physically interacting and playing Cops & Robbers …

Remember the days when kids were interacting and happily playing cops and robbers.

Well, the gist of the game was this:

1. Gather the children outside, and divide them into two groups-the "Cops" and the "Robbers."

2. Choose an object for the robbers to try to "steal."

3. To win the game, the robbers must complete their goal of stealing or touching this object and escaping from the cops.

4. The cops can tag the robbers to remove them from the game or send them to jail. (For details read this: https://www.birthdayinabox.com/pages/easy-kids-cops-robbers )

Do we see parents promoting or encouraging their children to interact and play Cops & Robbers anymore? Why not?

“And those days, most, if not all, will want to be the cop and not the robber, right?” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said the game was used to teach and guide children to respect law and order and that crime does not pay.

“Even then, children knew which is right, which is wrong. That’s why it was more ‘glamourous’ to be the cop, not the robber.

“Today, our children, even toddlers, are spending most of their time playing with electronic gadgets and games,” he added.

Syed Razak said Deputy Prime Minister cum Home Minister Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi hit the nail on the head when he reportedly said in Johor recently that all schools nationwide need to have crime prevention clubs to help instil discipline and curb gangsterism and drug related problems among pupils.


Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said: “I would take that even further to cover even toddlers and primary school children.

“Since this is the 21st Century digital era, and more and more time is being spent on the internet and games, why not the Polis di-Raja Malaysia or Bukit Aman take the lead in promoting respect for law and order.

“Or should this be considered by the Education Ministry?” he asked.

He said Bukit Aman and the federal government would have the financial resources to develop a free Cops & Robbers game in the internet for Malaysians.

“Get a professional to develop it, incorporating three themes into the game. Crime does not pay, respect for law and order and communities’ role in crime prevention,

“Limited prizes can even be thrown in in a limited time to promote the game to help raise awareness on the need to grow up as responsible and law abiding citizens.

“Can Cops & Robbers be used to educate the young effectively?” he asked.

Syed Razak said Cops & Robbers could also use the national language or language of unity to reach out to Malaysians, irrespective of race and religion.

DPM: All schools need crime prevention clubs

BY NELSON BENJAMINandKATHLEEN ANN KILI

JOHOR BARU: All schools nationwide need to have crime prevention clubs to help instil discipline and curb gangsterism and drug related problems among pupils.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said that currently 58% of the 58,000 inmates in prisons nationwide were serving time for drug related offences.

“I hope that with crime prevention clubs, we will be able to reach out to children at the preschool, primary and secondary school levels,” he said during the national-level Teachers Day celebrations here Tuesday.

Dr Ahmad Zahid, who is also the Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation (MCPF) chairman, said that he has asked the state MCPFs to help with the setting up of such clubs nationwide.

BUKIT LANJAN: Not the Gods but Malaysia must be crazy …


BUKIT LANJAN: Not the Gods but Malaysia must be crazy …

Much have been reported and said about Mat Over’s slappping or assault of movie producer David Teo in front of Prime Minister Najib Razak at a TN50 dialogue session in Seri Perdana, Putrajaya earlier last week.


For whatever reasons, it was absolutely wrong of Mat Over to resort to violence, what more in front of Najib, to display his displeasure.

“If Mat Over’s act of violence is acceptable, what will happen to Malaysians and Malaysia if everyone go around slapping others whenever they are displeased?

“The Terengganu government must take the cake when it comes to endorsing violence. The ruffian-like Mat Over was invited yesterday (May 20, 2017) evening as the host for ‘Santai Bersama Mat Over’!” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak said.

“Just what is the Terengganu government trying to proof or promote? Violence among youths?

“Terengganu Youth, Sports and Human Resources Committee chairman Rozi Mamat gave the excuse that the programme was planned before the scuffle took place.

“Rozi, just who are you trying to kid? There is such a thing as cancellation or replacement of the host,” he added.


Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said the “slapping or assault” issue had gone out of hand nationally.

“The ruffian is being promoted as a ‘hero’. And the cops are not doing anything about it and a state government is helping to promote violence.

“Remember the movie The Gods Must Be Crazy? Well, it’s now Malaysia Must Be Crazy!” he added.

Syed Razak urged the authorities, especially the police, to act fast against Mat Over before the issue or violence in Malaysia “becomes a global laughing stock”.

“In fact, the issue is no laughing matter, neither is it a joke. It is about violence and unacceptable adult behaviour. There must be some punitive action taken against Mat Over,” he added.

Netizens shocked as Mat Over is special guest at youth event


In the news: A poster promoting Mat Over as a special guest at the youth event in Kuala Terengganu.
PETALING JAYA: Netizens are up in arms over a banner in Hulu Terengganu which promoted Mat Over as a special guest at a Youth Day event there.

“Only in Malaysia you get highest honours once you slap people in front of Prime Minister,” Asrul Muzaffar tweeted while sharing the photo of the banner.


Fellow Twitter user Mohsen Alkaff wrote: “I’m nobody but I volunteer myself to replace Mat Over for Hari Belia (Youth Day) event in Terengganu.

“It’s not that I’m good but at least I’m better than him.”

“Youth Day with Mat Over. Is he still considered a youth? He is 60 years old!” Aiediel Jamal said on Facebook.

Terengganu Youth, Sports and Human Resources Committee chairman Datuk Rozi Mamat confirmed that Mat Over was invited yesterday evening as the host for “Santai Bersama Mat Over”, adding that the programme was planned before the scuffle took place.

“Mat Over is a local and he has always been invited for all kinds of ceremonies,” said Rozi when interviewed yesterday.

“It’s only because of the recent incident that people are making a big issue about it.”

Mat Over, an actor-comedian whose real name is Sulaiman Yassin, was involved in a scuffle with movie producer David Teo in front of Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at a TN50 dialogue session at Seri Perdana in Putrajaya earlier this week."

BUKIT LANJAN: Do we want science and economic progress but with adults who abandon their aged parents?

The Classic Of Filial Piety
BUKIT LANJAN: Do we want science and economic progress but with adults who abandon their aged parents?

It is a wonder whether the 21st Century children will grow up understanding and upholding the Confucian philosphy, filial piety.

What more, do the late 20th Century children even know or heard of filial piety?

Filial piety is a virtue of respect for one's parents, elders, and ancestors.

"We are now hearing many parents saying that it would be a folly to place too much hope and confidence on their children to care for them as they aged," Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

"It is really sad that family and humanitarian values have come to this stage despite global improvements in education, science and economic progress. There is really a growing lack of respect for elders and humanitarian values," he added.

Syed Razak said it was extremely sad to read The Star Online report from China titled "Woman in 80s abandoned by children, left bedridden for a month".

"Do we really want science and economic progress but ignore the deteriorating virtues of human values and respect?"


Syed Razak, who is Gerakan's nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said Malaysia must therefore give equal importance to moral and civics education.

"What is science and economic progress without a society of respectful and responsible adults?"

Syed Razak urged the Education Ministry to look into, and if needed, review the effectiveness of primary school moral and civics education syllabus to suit the needs of the 21st Century electronic and IT era.

"We need to instill high moral and civics values on our young so that they grow up to be respectful and responsible adults, not like the four children in China who abandoned their 80-year-old mother," he added.

Here's the report of the 80-year-old woman's ungrateful children:

Woman in 80s abandoned by children, left bedridden for a month


SHANTOU: A woman in her 80s was left bedridden at home by herself in southern China for more than a month with none of her four children coming to look after her, a local television station reported.


Zhang Luanmei fell and suffered a head injury at the beginning of April at her home in Shantou, in Guangdong province, according to a report by Shantou TV.

She was occasionally given assistance by neighbours and “other kind-hearted people” the report said without elaborating.

Her husband died some time ago, and none of her two sons and daughters live with her. Zhang lived alone and had been begging on the street for many years.

None of her children showed up at her home until recently, when her younger daughter who works in another city returned to Shantou and sent her to hospital.

The daughter said her elder brother, 55, also lived in Shantou, but had refused all requests to help look after his mother.

“He didn’t come to see Mum at home nor gave her any money,” she told the television station. “He said he suffered from hypertension and couldn’t come. He also said it was no big deal if Mum died.”

The daughter hoped her other siblings would take turns to looked after their mother. - South China Morning Post

BUKIT LANJAN: Counter the racial and religious bigots or wait for disaster to overwhelm Malaysians and Malaysia


BUKIT LANJAN: Counter the racial and religious bigots or wait for disaster to overwhelm Malaysians and Malaysia

With the anti-national antics of racial and religious bigots at full swing to disrupt a prosperous and harmonious Malaysia, all peace-loving Malaysians must help strike back.


Malaysians, irrespective of race and religion, cannot afford to take national unity matters for granted anymore and allow the bigots to achieve their evil agenda.

“They must not be allowed to continue carrying out their activities freely without any counter measures from the majority of peace-loving Malaysians,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said the best counter measure “that we can take is to organise more regular community programmes and projects aimed at strengthening national unity”.

“And, one of the best ways to do this is to revive the gotong royong programme that was once Malaysia’s foundation to forge multi-racial multi-religious unity.

Gotong royong is by far still the best community programme to ensure and strengthen neighbourhood and community ties,” he added.


Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), urged all residents’ associations to help bring back the gotong royong spirit.

“Start organising Sunday gotong royong regularly to save our neigbourhood, communities and country from the evil intentions of bigots,” he said when officiating at a gotong royong programme in Tabika Kemas Desa Jaya on Sunday May 14, 2017.

He said the intentions of bigots “will surely fail if the majority of the rakyat (people) rise to counter them with regular activities and programmes aimed at strengthening nation harmony and unity”.

“If we take matters for granted, leaving the bigots to continue freely to influence communities and societies, the end result will surely be disastrous for Malaysians and Malaysia,” he added.

他说,基金会成立于2012年2月,由首相纳吉夫人罗斯玛发起,并由乳腺癌幸存者Maniseh Adam马尼斯亚当为赞助人。

马尼斯说:“经过这个黑暗时期和康复过程,我们不希望其他女人经历同样的遭遇。

BUKIT LANJAN: Docs say cerebral palsy baby worthless but mum nurtures him to be a Harvard student

The Star Online news titled “Chinese mother who refused to give up disabled son nurtures him all the way to Harvard” is a powerful story of a mother’s love for her flesh and blood.

It also raises the question whether doctors should play God and decide whether a baby should be allowed to live or die.

“I believe a life is brought to this world for a reason by Allah (God). And that is why, the Koran gives a revered place to mothers,” Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said he was also a father to a special child inflicted by cerebral palsy caused by CMV virus. He died at age 20 in 2013.

“My wife and I were also told to have my unborn baby boy aborted at six months. We decided against it as we have no right to deny the boy his right to be born and to live.

“We have had 20 lovely years with him, both fond memories and challenges,” he added.

Docs say he’s useless but this is where Ding Ding is today
Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said: “I am contented to have been a responsible parent.

“I feel for the mainland China woman’s trials and challenges to not give up on her baby boy. Today, her son Ding Ding is admitted to the elite Harvard University in the United States.

“That’s a powerful story and statement to everyone who still think they have the right to deny the right of a baby to be born. That Ding’s father left him and wife speaks volumes of a mother’s role in this world.

“Zou Hongyan is one super mum who deserves world recognition as a mother of mankind. Without any doubt, she deserves a Nobel Prize for her efforts to raise and save Ding Ding,” Syed Razak said.

Chinese mother who refused to give up disabled son nurtures him all the way to Harvard
Zuo Hongyan ignored doctors and even her husband to devote her life to helping her son overcome adversity and make the most of his abilities.
HONG KONG: A man who was born disabled in central China has defied expectations by being admitted to the elite Harvard University in the United States.

Ding Ding, aged 29, attributed his success in his academic studies as well as overcoming many of his physical handicaps to his mother’s persistence and endless devotion, the news website Xinhuanet.com reports.

Ding nearly suffocated during a birth complication in 1988, leaving him with cerebral palsy. Doctors in Hubei province suggested to his mother Zou Hongyan that she give up the baby, saying it was worthless trying to rescue him as he would grow up either disabled or with low intelligence.

Even the boy’s father agreed with the doctors and told Zou that the boy would be a burden for the family for his entire life. But Zou insisted on saving the boy and soon divorced.

To support the family and provide treatment for her son, Zou took up several jobs including a full-time position at a college in Wuhan as well as part time jobs as a protocol trainer and selling insurance.


In her spare time, she regularly took Ding to rehabilitation sessions, regardless of the weather. She learnt how to massage his stiff muscles, a symptom of his condition. At the same time, Zou would play intelligence boosting games and puzzles with him.

The mother also insisted from the start that her son would learn to overcome his disabilities as far as possible. For example, Ding had problems coordinating his hand movements, and found if difficult to use chopsticks.

While many relatives said it was perfectly understandable that Ding did not use chopsticks while eating, Zou insisted on training him to do so. Otherwise, she said, he would have to explain each time he dined with others why he was unable to use them.

I didn’t want him to feel ashamed about this physical problems,” she said. “Because he had inferior abilities in many areas, I was quite strict on him to work hard to catch up where he had difficulties.”

Ding graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Peking University’s Environmental Science and Engineering School in 2011 before enrolling for a master’s degree at the university’s International Law School.

After working for two years, Ding started further studies at the US Ivy League Harvard University last year. The report did not mention which major he was studying.

He said he often missed his mother who now lives in Jingzhou, Hubei province. He described his mother as his “spiritual mentor” while she relished their “close friendship”. —

N.37 LET BUKIT LANJAN SOAR WITH SYED ABDUL RAZAK ALSAGOFF

BUKIT LANJAN: UM and its students indirectly countering anti-nationals via community projects, programmes




BUKIT LANJAN: UM and its students indirectly countering anti-nationals via community projects, programmes



The threat to national unity posed by racial and religious bigots is significantly felt by Malaysians today and university students have a big role to help counter such anti-nationals.

Both public and private universities can contribute much to promoting and strengthening national unity by actively getting involved in community activities.

“By so doing, tertiary institutions of education, their lecturers and students can directly and indirectly contribute to nation-building,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

Speaking at Bandar Damansara Perdana Desa Temuan Family Day Sunday Market on May 14, 2017, Syed Razak said all peace-loving Malaysians “have to seriously view the threat posed by racial and religious bigots”.

“Their daily antics and words are inflammatory, sensitive and hurtful to others. Societies and communities must thus help check the spread and growth of the bigots.

“There is no better way than organising interactive social and community activities to help forge closer public relations. This way, we are helping to forge national unity, irrespective of race and religion, and indirectly promoting national unity and harmony,” he added.



Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said Universiti Malaya (UM)’s law faculty’s current Sunday Market community project “is thus worth emulating for all other institutions of higher learning”.

“For the past six months, a selected group of graduands has been actively helping out the Orang Asli community in Desa Temuan with the permission of UM.

“The graduands sacrifice their Sundays to interact with the community and also train their children to perform cultural performances (view the two video clips above) at the Sunday Market.

“They also help organise various activities for the children and their parents every Sunday,” he said, adding that “it is heartening to note that UM is set to continue with the community programme with another group of graduands after Hari Raya.

Syed Razak urged other institutions of higher learning, especially public universities, to emulate UM’s community programmes in their respective areas.

“Such activities will not only help in promoting national unity and harmony, thus contributing to nation-building, it will also provide practical training to students on the organising skills and experience in community and public activities,” he added.
