PUTRAJAYA, Sept 19 ― Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin today reminded Muslims in the country not to be extremists in spreading their religion.
He said Malaysia is a multireligious, multiracial country and moderation should be practised to maintain national harmony.
“In our efforts to uphold and defend the sanctity of Islam and the purity of the faith of Muslims, I would like to remind us not to take extreme or overboard approaches that could cause anxiety among the multicultiral society in our country.
“We must remember that Malaysia is a multicultural country that always emphasises simplicity and harmony in race and religion,” he said in his speech at a meeting with several Islamic organisations organised by Yayasan Dakwah Islamiah Malaysia (Yadim).
