PM: Malaysia to engage Internet, not censor

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia will not resort to Internet censorship but use it to engage the public, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said.
“Malaysians are mature and rational and they know if certain quarters are only out to exploit a situation,” the Prime Minister said when commenting on the situation in Egypt where the Internet was blocked at the height of anti-government demonstrations.
“Our society is more educated and technology savvy and it would be a challenge to manage the new political environment (in Malaysia) but ICT tools can be used to engage the public," he said adding that he was also part of the Facebook and Twitter community
