    Joint effort needed to tackle social ills

    |     Azlan Othman     |

    EFFORTS to tackle social issues should be shouldered not only by the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports (MCYS), but through joint efforts between ministries and NGOs, Minister Yang Berhormat Major General (Rtd) Dato Paduka Seri Awang Haji Aminuddin Ihsan bin Pehin Orang Kaya Saiful Mulok Dato Seri Paduka Haji Abidin said.

    A special committee under the National Committee On Social Issues has already been established where 12 issues have been identified.

    He was responding to a query by Legislative Council member and Penghulu of Mukim Kota Batu Yang Berhormat Naim bin Haji Kamis who asked about joint efforts to tackle the unhealthy mental attitude, efforts to eradicate social issues such as child born out of wedlock and escalating criminal issues relating to youth.

    The minister said platforms like the National Service Programme (PKBN), mosque youth, youth and voluntary associations are ideal to strengthen youth national identity.
