PETALING JAYA: A group of graft fighters seek to show Malaysians how to rid the country of corruption and have fun doing it.
Calling the initiative Rasuah Busters, Karangkraf Media Group chairman Datuk Hussamuddin Yaacub invited Malaysians to join the movement to empower communities to say no to corrupt practices.
"At the deepest level, corruption is against our beliefs, our faith and moral values.
"We must know that while society can create institutions, legal frameworks, rules and laws to deter corruption, the last line of defence lies squarely on the individual, on you and I," he said in a statement on Monday (Feb 15).
He added Malaysians must convince each other that everyone stands to lose if corruption is allowed to go on unchecked.
Hussamuddin also encouraged Malaysians to communicate to leaders that they want the country to progress without being aided by corrupt practices.
Hussamuddin, who is also Rasuah Buster's team leader, said the group's fight will be guided by the principles of the Rukun Negara and the Federal Constitution.
Among its other approaches are being merciful and compassionate in finding solutions, not be judgmental, and use positive language and propositions.
He also encouraged Malaysians to get creative in their approach in accordance with the group's guidelines to encourage others to join the cause.
