KUALA LUMPUR: The government will not table two national harmony Bills aimed at strengthening racial and religious ties but is considering setting up a National Harmony and Reconciliation Commission instead, says P. Waytha Moorthy.  

The Minister in the Prime Minister's Department in charge of national unity and social well-being said the Cabinet agreed that there were some overlaps with current laws after looking at the drafts of the Racial and Religious Hate Crime Bill and the National Harmony and Reconciliation Bill.
