Abstract

Human Nature (Fitrah) and Liberalism two aspects that have become important debated topics in Malaysia. This paper discusses these two aspects based on the observation of result analysis from several conducted research. In addition to that, the discussion in this paper will also examine where the ideologies are placed in the media in today’s era of 4iR. This paper is written based on the research that was conducted qualitatively which involved historical and content analyses. The findings show that the liberal ideology moves concurrently with the dissemination of the secularism ideology. Its widespread growth is inline with the rapid development of communications media in the era of 4iR. If this is not contained in its early stages, it can be one of the factors that contribute to the rise of extremist-minded society. The implication is that the religious harmony in this country will be affected as well as the level of unity between different races and ethnicities. It is therefore the responsibility of all parties, whether individuals, societies or government agencies in various ministries to figure out the best solution to curb the spread of these two aspects.
