Kadir Jasin: We have no discipline

“We have no discipline”, Tokoh Wartawan Negara 2011 Dato’ A Kadir Jasin remarked to younger Malaysians with regards in the handling ‘democracy’, be it the freedom to choose, which include their jobs, entertainment, political stance and expression of opinion.

“Finnish and Swedes are very developed, technologically advanced and fully exercise their freedom. They know when to work, when to play, when to demonstrate and when to express themselves”.

“Then again there is also the example of Singapore. They are developed. But there is no freedom to express themselves and no demonstration allowed”.

According to Kadir, things have change and the dynamism is fast. The development of technology and how people express themselves enabled the rapid growth of the freedom of information, that transcends borders, race, colours and creed.

Kadir was sharing his experience and thoughts at an intellectual discourse organized by Malaysian Press Institute (MPI). The event was also attended by UiTM communications students.
