KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Sri Anwar Ibrahim stressed that the Unity Government would pursue its efforts to defend the country from any attempts to dampen the nation’s spirit and unity.

Anwar said, the country has different races, cultures and religions and as such the people have to accept that fact and respect one another.

“Nobody can question the absolute provision of the Federal Constitution, the rights of Islam (as the religion of the federation) and the rights of the Malays and Bumiputera.

“Malaysia has been strong and will continue to be strong by acknowledging the social contract among the races and guaranteeing the rights of all citizens to practice their religion and culture,” Anwar said.
