IPOH: The people should not forget the sacrifices by security personnel and other groups in ensuring that Malaysians can celebrate Hari Raya in peace and harmony, says Perak Ruler Sultan Nazrin Muiz­zud­din Shah.

“When the majority of Malaysians are on holiday, there are some who are performing important tasks,” the Sultan said in his message.

He said these groups included security forces such as the police, army, firefighters, prison wardens, immigration and customs officers.

“To them and their families, the Raja Permaisuri and I would like to state our appreciation. May Allah accept their sacrifices,” he said.

The Sultan urged Muslims to perform exemplary acts that could strengthen the people’s unity and the bond among family members, friends and neighbours.

“This should prove that Islam is a religion that is about peace, harmony, friendship and good relationship.

“Hari Raya celebrations should give Muslims the space to show acceptance, openness and tolerance,” said the Sultan, adding that Muslims should also use this opportunity to foster unity among Malaysians of other races, religions and cultures.
