Say (O Muhammad ) : "He is Allah, (the) One"Allah-us-Samad (The Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need, He neither eats nor drinks)."He begets not, nor was He begotten;"And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him." (surah al-ikhlas,al-quran)

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said,

"Almighty Allah says, "I am –absolutely- in no need of partners. Whoever does a deed for the sake of others as well as Me, I leave that person and that deed." (Muslim)

Freedom Enjoyed By Radio Stations Have Negative Impact On Nationalism

0 respon

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 24 (Bernama) -- The freedom enjoyed by radio stations has given a negative impact in moulding national sentiments which could be seen in the last few years, said former information minister Tan Sri Zainuddin Maidin.

In welcoming the move by the government to compel local radio stations to air local songs beginning next month, he said as a result of the freedom, the local songs no longer had an influence on the sentiments of the younger generation who were more inclined to listen to foreign songs, especially from the neighbouring country.

Zainuddin, who welcomed the firm stand of Information Communication and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim who made it compulsory for every radio station to play local songs as a condition to obtain their licence beginning in March, said the minister had discharged his responsibility "which I could not do when I was the information minister because the power of granting the licence was under a different ministry."

Meanwhile, he hoped that Rais would take stern measures to eliminate the 'bahasa rojak' (adulterated language) which was increasingly used in dramas and popular programmes on private TV stations now.
