“They are into drugs like syabu and liquor. This is most worrying,” he said during a Hari Raya Aidilfitri gathering at the Al-Qurnia Mosque in Kampung Pandam.

“The youths will be destroyed if this negative culture is allowed to spread unabated,” he said, adding ultimately, a whole community will be affected.

Hasbi called on parents to pay more attention to their children and keep track of what they do and who they move with.

He said village development and security committees must sit down to address this problem involving youths.

“If need be, seek help from the relevant authorities, including the police.

“Religion is also important, parents must guide them on the right path,” he said.
