PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has pledged that the Pakatan Harapan government will be sensitive towards all religions in the country.

"This morning I received courtesy call from the members of Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism at my office in Kuala Lumpur.

"Despite our differences, this country has been more peaceful than other countries in terms of racial harmony and religious tolerance.

"This government will be very sensitive towards all religions and at the same time each and every one of us must obey the rule of law," he said on his Facebook page on Friday (Jan 11).

On Dr Mahathir's Facebook page, he had also posted four pictures of the meeting together with the council's respective religious leaders.
