Young Muslims Must Come Out With Road Map For Next 30 Years - Khairy

KUALA LUMPUR – Young Muslims around the world should prepare a road map for the next three decades to face the various challenges in the future, especially to create job for the future, said Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin.

“National Transformation 2050 (TN50) is a 30 years road map that we have started for Malaysia. And it is just important for the Muslim world, I believe we need to have a road map for the future.

“If you are silent as young Muslims and young people in your country, than your leaders will not respond to that change,” he said when opening the ‘Towards The Renascence of Muslim Future Thinkers: Vision TN50 of Malaysia “ Forum here today.

He said young Muslims should start thinking about the obstructions in the society and how they were going to manage them.

“Information in the digital age will bring changes to our society whether we like it or not. If countries do not reform on their own, if they don’t make changes on it by today, then those said changes are going to be forced upon them.

“No country is immune to change and certainly no country is immune to social depression towards change. That changes must come from all of you,” he said.

The government has reached out to more than 1.5 million youths nationwide through the TN50 Dialogue session since it was introduced in January.

Approximately 60,000 aspirations of the young people from various fields were gathered via all sorts of channels including through online and face-to-face interactions.
