Malaysians of Muslim faith celebrated Hari Raya Puasa, after fasting for a month. This is a very special occasion whereby the Muslim held open houses and welcomed their non-Muslims friends of all walks of life to a special Hari Raya treat. Nowhere in the world, do we have this special open house except in this beloved country of ours.
Our beloved Prime Minister and his wife held an open house reception for all Malaysians at the Seri Perdana Complex in Putrajaya. This included the various heads of government and Chief Ministers held open houses for all including foreign dignitaries. This practice is unique in nature and we are admired by these foreign dignitaries. Malaysia is a peaceful country and we are grateful to the Police, Army, Navy and the Security forces who sacrifice their lives to maintain peace and order in this country.
In this respect, our beloved Sultan Nazrin Shah of Perak has made a special message in his Hari Raya message that we Malaysians must not waste food and avoid a culture of wastage. This is a friendly call and we as the rakyat of this beloved nation must adhere to his call. At the same time, let us all remember ‘The five principles of Rukunegara’. Let there be peace and harmony so that we as Malaysians can live together as one big family, regardless of race, culture and religion.
Let the almighty give us strength and stability and live a prosperous life.
