Open houses vital for national harmony, says Dr Wee


PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong has called on Malaysians to use occasions like open houses to create stronger inter-racial bonds by better understanding each other’s cultural traditions.

"Not only does it help us create a strong bond, such a gathering with friends from diverse backgrounds also gives us the opportunity to have a better understanding of each other’s cultures and traditions," said the MCA president in a Facebook post on Saturday (April 20).

"May we continue to live harmoniously as one big family as Malaysians despite our differences," Dr Wee added in his message at the Hari Raya open house of Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan, who was also Barisan Nasional deputy chairman and Umno deputy president, in Kg Tanjung, Rantau on Saturday (April 20) morning.

He went on to thank Mohamad and the people of Rantau for their warm hospitality.

"Thank you to Tok Mat and the people of Rantau for welcoming us and being such warm hosts by serving us so many enjoyable and delicious dishes at the open house."
