PUTRAJAYA – The Global Movement of Moderates (GMM) Foundation is to establish GMM clubs in institutions of higher learning in the country and abroad, said GMM Foundation executive chairman and CEO Datuk Dr Nasharudin Mat Isa.
Recognising that many students of public institutions of higher learning wish to be with GMM and to be engaged actively in the movement, it was felt that it would be good to expand the establishment of GMM clubs to these institutions, he said.
“Indirectly, such an effort can expose the approach of moderation to the generation of youths at an early stage,” he said at a dinner with the Putrajaya Media Club here last night.
Nasharudin said the setting up of the clubs would allow for the highlighting of the potential and high-impact creative ideas of the younger generation.
He said a GMM club was set up at a public university in Jordan last year and there was a plan to establish such clubs in the United States.
He also said that he intended to organise a programme where experienced foreign missionaries would be invited to share their experiences on how best to deliver religious lectures that could be easily understood by the audience.
Nasharudin said GMM planned to set up a new website for the movement and launch two books, one of them a collection of the speeches on Wasatiyyah (moderation) by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak who mooted GMM at the 65th United Nations General Assembly in 2010. – BERNAMA
