I suppose everyone had a very enjoyable Christmas yesterday ...In Malaysia it is yet another religious festival being celebrated....Just a month ago the Moslem celebrate the Aidil Fitri and still go on celebrating it until yesterday....and then Christmas came....Our Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had this to say to the Malaysian community especially the Christian on his visit to an Open House held by the Christian Federation of Malaysia... Quote: " The great figure whose birth you celebrate today is also a figure we Moslems honor very highly," and in a reply speech by the Bishop Julius Paul...Referring to Abdullah as the fifth Prime minister... Quote: "gentle yet firm approach, would go a long way towards winning the hearts and minds of the people...We assure you that we will stand by you and have you and the family in our prayer.....More than that, as people of the faith, it is appropriate to say that you are God's gift to Malaysia at this point of our history......My friends...., these words of wisdom from both these leaders, one a Moslem and the other a Christian are indeed well said......Let us take a pause and reflect on it for a moment in time.... We would soon realized that it is indeed great advise to us all, for our own benefit, our children and also for the future of our grand children as well as the generation to come......Well.... That is Malaysia a country bless with great leaders such at these, thus has develop a racial harmony and prosperity beyond the dreams of its founding father in the year nineteen fifty seven. In the spirit of Aidil Fitri and Christmas let us all work together to makes this world a better place to live....Malaysia a Multi racial, multi religious have proven to the world that we all can live side by side in harmony and work collectively despite our difference and today have made the country a prosperous one....To the world... come and join us with our aspiration and contribute to make this world a better place to live.
