"Nation should create new breed of intellectuals"

Malaysia Needs Thinkers?

Prime Minister Abdullah said Malaysia should create an Ulul Al-Bab community of between 5,000 and 10,000 scholars and thinkers in science and technology by 2020 to ensure the nation's success.

In defining Ulul Al-Bab, Pak Lah said these thinkers are those who know how to analyse natural occurrences and uses natural greatness for development purposes.

This group of thinkers will play the role in the development of the people and contributing to mankind.

"This is my aspiration," Pak Lah said.

Malaysia don't have thinkers? And we need 5,000-10,000 thinkers by 2020?
