KUANTAN, 13 May 2009: Sinners need to be brought to orphanages, mosques and hospitals to make them aware of their actions and repent, said Pahang Islamic Religious Department (Jaip) deputy director, Mohd Ghazali Abdul Aziz.
“By visiting an orphanage they will see how orphans lack parental love, while they (offenders) have families but do not appreciate them,” he told reporters after launching the Kuantan Gerak Gembur Vice Activities Brigade, here today.
Mohd Ghazali said mat rempits (daredevil motorcycle racers) could also be brought to hospitals to show them the effects of illegal racing and putting not only their lives in danger, but also the lives of others.
“Let them see for themselves their friends who have lost a limb due to illegal racing, and if that’s not enough we bring them to the mosque for guidance,” he said.
Regarding the newly formed brigade, Mohd Ghazali said its role was to inform the authorities on vice activities around Kuantan, as well as bring awareness to offenders using a guidance approach. — Bernama
