KUCHING: The Sarawak government has allocated RM30mil for the Unit for Other Religions (Unifor) this year.

This would enable non-Muslim communities to upgrade their houses of worship or carry out other religious-related activities, as well as strengthen unity among the races and religions in Sarawak, said Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg.

He said as a Muslim, he held strongly to the teachings of Prophet Muhammad to be fair to all religions.

“Leaders must be fair to both Muslims and non-Muslims. The society can live more peacefully and harmoniously by practising their own religious beliefs,” he said at the presentation of contributions for Unifor here yesterday.

Unifor was set up in 2017 with a RM15mil allocation which was increased to RM20mil in 2018. — Bernama
