Fostering harmony

MALAYSIA takes pride in being a multicultural society and an exemplary moderate Islamic nation where people of different ethnic groups live side by side and where Islam, the majority religion, is practised alongside other faiths and belief systems.

Malaysians abide by Article 3 (1) of the Federal Constitution which states that Islam is the religion of the Federation; but other religions may be practised in peace and harmony in any part of the Federation. The Constitutional provision on religion makes it incumbent on us to defend our own freedom of worship and to respect the rights of others to do likewise.
