Puteri has some fiery speakers who can rival the seniors
THEY may be the princesses of the party, but Puteri Umno delegates who stepped up to the debate rostrum made fiery speeches that could rival their senior speakers.
Feisty Sabah delegate Hamidah Mumamad Jafar called for support for bold moves to curb cases of baby-dumping, such as setting up a school for pregnant mothers and providing more baby hatches.
The Putatan Puteri Umno division chief said the Government should fully support innovative approaches as the growing number of baby-dumping cases was alarming.
Setting the school and the baby-hatch provided a lifeline for pregnant unwed mothers and their babies.
Sex education in schools is also a must to prevent young girls from being involved in premarital sex, she said, to the applause of the more than 700 delegates.
Johor Baru Puteri Umno chief Azura Mohd Afandi wants the Information Ministry to curb television shows and commercials that could lead people astray from the right religious paths.
Horror films and commercials deemed too sexy for young viewers might lead to deviant teachings.
[size=150]For example, commercials on sanitary pads are openly shown on TV and this could influence the young to get involved in social ills, said Azura, urging the ministry to increase shows that teach good values and religious practices.[/size] :oops: http://img.diytrade.com/cdimg/303080/7550044/0/1228291538/Sanitary_Napkin__Whisper_Series_sanitary_pads_feminine_napkin_lady_napkin_fema.jpg
Kedah delegate Azifah Abdul Rahman supports the continued use of the Internal Security Act against those who threaten the countrys security.
She said: The Act is needed, especially as there are those who dare question the Malay rights.
