Attempts To Undermine Unity A Dangerous Act, Says Ng

KLANG, Aug 13 (Bernama) -- Attempts to undermine unity by elements in the country are more dangerous than those perpetrated by elements outside Malaysia, MCA vice-president Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen said.

As such, she said, Malaysians should come together and fight any attempt to disrupt unity among them.

Ng was commenting on blogs which were said to be containing entries deemed to be racially and religiously offensive.

Speaking to reporters after opening the National Autism Society of Malaysia in Bandar Puteri here on Thursday, Ng said information in those blogs were malicious and could spark racial sentiment especially among the younger generation who were inexperienced and could be easily influenced.

"It may not matter to the mature generation because we know what is right and wrong. But for the younger generation, they may take what is written as the truth," she said.

Ng called on the people to appreciate the racial unity that the nation had achieved and not to be easily swayed by baseless allegations.

On the Padang Chetty issue in Klang which was not yet gazetted as a heritage site by the Selangor government, Ng who is also the tourism minister, said the ministry would sent officers to discuss the matter with state authorities.

"The ministry wants to develop areas of historical and heritage importance as tourism attractions as long as the state government is willing to cooperate," she said.

Meanwhile, Ng said her ministry had allocated RM60 million to repair and restore the cable car links in Bukit Bendera.

Details on the allocation would be released tomorrow, she said. -- BERNAMA
