ARAU – Parents should monitor their children towards ensuring that they are not influenced by militant groups on the Internet, said Raja Muda Perlis Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail.
He said the Internet had made the world smaller and borderless which made information to be accessed and shared easily by anyone.
“Militant groups and terrorists are using the Internet to target impressionable youths especially in higher learning institutions to join them.
“Thus it is imperative for parents to monitor their children to ensure they stay clear of these groups and people out to cause harm,” he said at Sekolah Menengah Datuk Sheikh Ahmad’s (SMKDSA) excellence awards ceremony here today.
He added that if their children succumbed to the influence of militant groups, it would not only be a loss to them but the children as well. – BERNAMA
