1st Malaysian-ASEAN Regional Bloggers Conference held in Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia earlier today.Given a speech in the conference,Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak stressed again that current government of Malaysia will not intend to censor the Internet.
The points are:
Malaysian government is willing to build an open and digital democracy of society and it’s on the way to go.
Malaysian government is keeping to develop Multimedia Super Corridor which was initiated by former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir.
Malaysian government is hoping to treat the bloggers as partners to move forward together,not as enemies.
Malaysian government is looking forward to seeing that bloggers could treat government fairly to make comments online.
Malaysian government is helping doing further investments on high speed broadband services to eliminate the digital gap.
Could the promise be trusted?Well,as it is a public speech that most people now hear it,I don’t think the government could change their principle so easily.Do wish to see a much open Malaysia soon!
Google’s spokesman said Google China stopped to censor the contents in the Internet and closed off the search engine in mainland China.Google.cn will directly redirect to Google.hk.That means from now on Chinese users could search anything existing in the Internet,including the truth of some affairs.
I can understand why the Chinese government wanted to have such a censorship,however,I never support it.I think even in a family,hiding something between members is not a good thing and it should be applying to the government too.People release some rights to the government to draw a consistent strategy to develop the country and to have a peaceful environment.I believe most people have their clear minds to judge what is right or wrong.Thus,they have the rights to know about the truth of anything.
Chinese government blocked the access to Facebook,Twitter,YouTube(the most popular websites in the world) a few years ago.I think it’s cutting the way to the whole world.I do know that if Chinese government continues to govern the country in this way,it’s losing their mind.It’s also losing people’s hearts.
Now what actions the government taking into Google will be a direction to show where China wants to go.I hope the government could take the steps to open mind as I really hope my motherland is walking on a right way growing.
