PETALING JAYA: Wishing Malaysians a Merry Christmas, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail has called upon everyone to continue to “uphold the peaceful co-existence and bonds of friendship” this festive season.

“In conjunction with Christmas this year, let us continue to cherish the respect, understanding and love that exist between our fellow Malaysians.

“This is not something that can easily be torn apart. United we stand, divided we fall,” she said.

Wan Azizah added that Malaysia had a lot to be grateful for, and that Malaysians should look at all the positives instead of focusing on the negatives, which they outweigh.

“In Islam, it is compulsory for us to be tolerant towards one another," she added.

She also called upon all Malaysians to care for the poor, sick and marginalised, as well as those  in need of shelter.

“Consider this my personal Christmas card to every single one of you celebrating Christmas this year,” Dr Wan Azizah said.

With that, the Deputy Prime Minister wished all a wonderful and joyous celebration.
