Malaysia’s Education Ministry will be working with the police to provide information to students on the dangers of terrorist ideology and the Islamic State (IS) militant group.

Deputy Education Minister Senator Chong Sin Woon said for the time being, most of the guidance are in the form of talks conducted by police and other security agencies at various places including schools.

“Together with the police and security forces, we will start disseminating information in schools this year,” he told reporters after visiting Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Cina (SJKC), here on Sunday.

Chong was commenting on the efforts of the ministry to curb students from being easily influenced by terrorist ideology especially ISIS.

On December 31, a Malaysian student in Egypt became the first student to be charged at the court sessions in Sepang, nearly 45 km south of Kuala Lumpur, for supporting al-Qaeda terrorist group.
