A refreshing display of unity

A banner located at Jalan Kepuk 19/2 in Shah Alam has urged Malaysians to set aside political differences and stand together as a community. The banner was said to be placed by Persatuan komuniti 19/3 and KRT 19/3. AZMAN GHANI/The Star

I WAS truly moved by the picture on the front page of The Star yesterday (pic).

The groups, Persatuan Komuniti 19/3 and KRT 19/3, who put up the banner with the logos of Barisan Nasional, PKR and PAS in Jalan Kepuk 19/2, Shah Alam are truly representative of our unity.

I am very relieved that in the heat of the 14th General Election (GE14), there are still Malaysians who care above all for unity. Their respect for and understanding of unity is much higher compared to certain groups and especially those involved in the political parties.

G25, a group of moderate Malays, has been trying its very best to enhance unity in this country but it seems to be hardly a concern among certain groups who prefer to use race-based rhetoric against their rivals. They do not realise that their actions not only tarnish the image of our country but also have negative effects on our youngsters and could blow our racial problems out of proportion. This is already manifesting in our secondary schools and within the community.

I hope similar banners will be put up throughout the country to remind Malaysians of the importance of staying united as we head for polling day. Let’s vote out the “bad apples” and choose the good ones to lead us and make the economy strong again.
