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)

Only seven percent of Kelantan population have Internet access

KOTA BAHARU: Describing the percentage as low, the Kelantan Government has revealed that only seven per cent of its 1.4 million population have access to the Internet.
State information, ICT development, science and technology committee chairman Dr Mohamed Fadzli Datuk Hassan said many Kelantanese were not IT-literate and thus, could not access the Internet for information on local and foreign current news.

In relation to that, he said, they were ready to relax the requirements on land acquisition to develop telecommunications in the state and extend the spread of information through the media.

"We always provide opportunities to telecommunication companies to set up more transmitters to allow them to broaden the Internet network in the state,” he told reporters here today.

Mohamed Fadzli said, so far, the state government had allowed Infraquest Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of the Kelantan State Economic Development Corporation (KSEDC), to carry out a transmitter station project for this purpose.

"We don't see anything that would prevent these companies from expanding broadband, the people can obtain foreign and local news," he said.
In a related development, Mohamed Fadzli said, to produce considerate Internet users, the committee and telecommunication company Jaring were outlining a policy to monitor users.

"This is because a lot of negative incidents can occur in this era of sophisticated technology and borderless world, and if not controlled, can result in cyber crime," he added.

Mohd Fazdli said the move was also in line with the government's efforts through the committee to create a group on Facebook known as Sahabat Siber Sayang Kelantan (Saing) recently.

The Facebook page, which was officiated by Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat last month, has over 3,000 members comprising various levels of society.
