Raja Nazrin to youth: Lawlessness breeds lawless culture and lawless governments

Nazrin: Uphold rule of law

The rule of law must be upheld, and institutions established through and in accordance with the law must be respected in propagating a culture of peace, said the Raja Muda of Perak Raja Dr Nazrin Shah.

He said the law governed our interactions with one another and with the state.

“A lawless system breeds a lawless culture, which in turn, suggests lawless governance and lawless governments.

“The law is a fundamental building block of any nation. In Malaysia, primacy of the law is upheld as one of the pillars in the Rukunegara, just as it is held as paramount by most progressive countries,” he said in his speech titled ‘Youth for World Peace’ at the International Conference of Youth on Terrorism here yesterday.

He said peaceful and harmonious coexistence among the people of a nation and the world could not prevail under a state of lawlessness.

This was one of the nine actions needed to propagate a culture of peace, in the internationally-agreed framework in place that provided an agenda for all youths to work towards, he said.

The eight other actions included education (which specifically promoted peaceful conflict resolution, dialogue, consensus-building and non-violence); economic and social development; respect for human rights; gender equality; democratic participation; advancing understanding, tolerance and solidarity; supporting participatory communication and free flow of information and knowledge; and promoting international peace and security.

“The youths of the world may or may not be in a position to influence these outcomes directly, but they do have the ability to participate, via their educational institutions and through civil society organisations.”

Raja Nazrin said while it was easy to be pessimistic about the possibility of a world free from war and terrorism, the renewed impetus many national and international bodies were giving to this problem was heartening.

He also said the true challenge was for statesmen and policy-makers to give the young a role and stake in the process of nation-building and creation of a just international order. — Bernama
