Treat differences as an advantage in dealing with economic, health crises, says PM

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has called on Malaysians to treat differences as an advantage rather than a weakness, and similarities as a source of strength in dealing with the current twin crises in economy and health.

The Prime Minister said as a Malaysian Family, everyone needed to work together to revive the country and adapt to new norms.

"Let us forge and strengthen unity with the bond of love and tolerance as a big Malaysian Family.

"Whoever we are, whether a father, mother, child, neighbour, employee, head of an office, community leader, religious leader or political leader, we have to play the role to revive the country for the well-being of the Malaysian Family.”

He said this in a special message in conjunction with the Maulidur Rasul 2021M/1443H celebration that was broadcast live on RTM1 on Tuesday (Oct 19).

Ismail Sabri said the rise and fall of a race and country are dependent on their unity and solidarity.

"Rasulullah, for example, had made a peace treaty with the various tribes living near Madinah in the northern and southern regions to increase understanding and renew relations based on the principle of truth as well as to avoid chaos and clashes of power.

"Don’t let differences of opinion and approach cause us to lose our value of ukhuwah (brotherhood) and spirit of unity that have been established for so long,” he said.

Based on the belief that Rasulullah SAW is the best role model for mankind including when he became the head of state in building Madinah, Ismail Sabri said the government would continue to emulate the initiatives implemented by the Prophet as a guide in the country’s administration for the prosperity of the Malaysian Family.

"To this end, various policies, initiatives and incentives will be introduced and planned by the government so as to ensure that no members of the Malaysian Family are left behind in enjoying the wealth and prosperity of the country,” he said.- Bernama
