27 May 2023 07:43pm
He said that Malaysia MADANI cannot rise without morals, values and the willingness of the younger generation to cultivate knowledge through extensive reading.
Anwar, who considers the effort to cultivate the culture of reading as a big challenge for the country, said that the awakening of young people needs to start with the power of knowledge.
"As for social media, I cannot dispute its importance, but believe me, if you want to be a person with karamah insaniah (human dignity), a person who has values, morals, and knowledge, it must start with the tradition of reading seriously.
"This country should be developed as the MADANI nation which has knowledge, values, kindness, and mercy. All that can be nurtured through the spirit of reading, gaining knowledge,” he said when officiating the Kuala Lumpur International Book Fair (PBAKL) 2023, at the World Trade Centre Kuala Lumpur (WTCKL), here today. - BERNAMA
