PUTATAN: Strong ties between communities can be made with the implementation of community service programmes in their areas.
Deputy Chief Minister cum the state Minister of Agriculture and Food Industry, Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Yahya Hussin, said these programmes are the way forward in helping those who are in need and strengthen the unity between various communities.
“Through the ‘Berkhitan Beramai-ramai’ Programme, the spirit of harmony and unity among the Muslim communities can be strengthened,” he said when officiating the programme at Putatan District Mosque, this evening.
He also said the public perception on mosques as house of worship only can be changed when these facilities will be seen as centres of community services which cater to every aspect of life.
“This programme is the evidence of our community being united under the mosque institution which involves the calling of religion and preservation of Islamic traditions,” he added. –SayangSabah
