KUALA LUMPUR: The “Pray for Malaysia” programme held in conjunction with the National Day is symbolic of the strength and solidarity of Malaysians in facing difficulties.
The programme, scheduled to be held at Dataran Merdeka on Aug 15, is to show gratitude and to remember the tragedies that affected the country recently, said deputy director-general of Special Affairs Department (Jasa) Datuk Abu Talib Harun.
He said this in a press conference held after attending the pre-launch “Pray for Malaysia” programme at the Malaysian Tourism Centre (MaTIC) here yesterday.
The programme is jointly organised by the Federal Territory Islamic Affairs Council (MAIWP); Ministry of Communications and Multimedia, the Cheras Education Foundation and TV Al-Hijrah.
“Hopefully this programme would remind all Malaysians to continue praying for the country, let us not face anymore bad news,” Abu Talib said.
He added that the “Pray for Malaysia” would begin with prayers as well as special performances by famed Indonesian speaker Habib Syech Abdul Qadir Assegaf and local nasyid groups Inteam, Al-Mawlid and Anak Warisan Kedah.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and senior government officers are among the invited guest.
Some 200,000 people are expected to join the programme. — Ber-nama
