ABIM supports Sexual Offence Against Children Act

The Muslim Youth Movement of Malaysia (ABIM) commended the organisation of the Stop Sexual Crimes Against Children Seminar which was held from March 13 – 14 at Dewan Merdeka, PWTC.
That seminar is considered most significant at a time when this country has been shaken by the arrest of Richard Huckle and the return of Selva Kumar Subbaiah back to Malaysia, both men being convicted for sexual crimes.
ABIM would also like to thank the Malaysian Prime Minister who has come forward to announce several drastic measures to address sexual crimes against children including the Bill on Sexual Offence Against Children Act that will be tabled in Parliament this time, as well as forming a Special Court for children addressing sexual offences.
ABIM has also examined the presentation by all panels involved and found that all the agencies and non-governmental organisations (NGO) have mutually agreed that family institutions must be strengthened besides making changes and improving the laws for the welfare of children in Malaysia.
Besides that, ABIM also welcomes the resolutions reached in the Seminar which among others emphasized the need for reproductive or sex education to be gradually introduced to children beginning from pre-school level.
As and NGO and missionary body which have served the society on social issues for a long time, ABIM has actually been consistent and ready to organise programmes for self or character enhancement, reproductive education and strengthening Family institution through DERMAGA (Dirimu Permata Berharga) programme, SABDA (Siri Asuh Bimbing Didik anak-anak), KAMAR (Keluarga Mawaddah Warahmah) and children’s safety advocate series which is # Standupforourchildren.
