KOTA KINABALU: Malaysians should subscribe to the concept of ‘symbiotic harmony’ to strengthen social cohesion among races and religions in Malaysia as the country is home to citizens of different race, culture and religion and has been recognized as a multiracial and multi- religious nation since its formation.
Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) president Datuk Teo Chee Kang said: “We enjoy freedom of religion. We embrace racial harmony. And we accept each other’s mother tongue education.”
Teo who is also the Minister of Special Tasks hoped the spirit of united espouse by our founding father will be safeguarded and all the racial, religion and mother tongue issues which created unnecessary tension last year will be put to an end as we celebrate the coming Chinese New Year.
He believed that with determination and faith, we Malaysians could survive this perceived trend back to the right track.
“To maintain and further strengthen social cohesion among races and religions in Malaysia, we must subscribe to the concept of ‘symbiotic harmony’ as a means to safeguard the founding spirit of our country,” Teo stressed in his Chinese New Year message.-Sayangsabah
