ANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, 7 Okt -- Raja Muda Perlis Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail--fotoBERNAMA (2017) HAK CIPTA TERPELIHARA

DHAKA: The Raja Muda of Perlis has called on Muslims to emphasise moderation in their daily lives.

Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail (pic), who is also president of the Perlis Islamic Religious and Malay Customs Council (MAIPs), said Muslims should be moderate in their religious dealings.

Speaking at the Liqa Mawaddah programme organised by MAIPs at the Kurmitolla Golf Club in Dhaka, Bangladesh, on Tuesday, he said he wanted Islamophobia to be countered with moderation.

“Islamophobia must be effectively tackled through wasatiyyah, which stresses moderation,” he said in his speech to about 150 Malaysians who are living in Bangladesh.

As part of the programme, Tuanku Syed Faizuddin presented MAIPs’ contribution of RM5,000 to the First Secretary of the Malaysian High Commission in Dhaka, Idham Zuhri Mohd Yunus, for the Ibnu Sabil Fund.

The fund is aimed at helping Malaysians who encounter emergencies in Bangladesh, including getting stranded there.

Besides Bangladesh, Maips has organised similar programmes in London, Riyadh, Jeddah, Kuwait, Muscat, Doha and Dubai.

Also present were Malaysian Consultative Council for Islamic Or­­ganisations president Azmi Abdul Hamid and Daffodil Inter­national University Bangladesh chairman Sabur Khan.

The Raja Muda of Perlis arrived in Bangladesh on Sunday to lead a humanitarian mission by various NGOs to check on the situation at Rohingya refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar. — Bernama
