King urges Malaysians to be grateful for our religious freedom


KUALA LUMPUR April 21: Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah urged the people to be grateful as all races and religions in the country are free to conduct worship and celebrate their respective festivals with joy and excitement.

Al-Sultan Abdullah said, transcending borders and differences Malaysians celebrate holy festivals of various religions in harmony and by visiting each other.

In conjunction with Hari Raya Aidilfitri 2023/1444H which was aired on local television this evening, His Majesty said, Malaysians can continue their daily lives with tolerance and without any gaps between races and religions. It is an unparalleled gift and blessing from Allah SWT.

“This situation is far different from that of Muslims in Palestine as the Zionist regime mercilessly launched attacks on the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Ramadan when they were performing their prayers,” he said.

Al-Sultan Abdullah added the Zionist regime would carry out extreme provocations against Muslims in Palestine in the last days of Ramadan and before Syawal every year.

His Majesty added, Malaysia and the world had strongly condemned the attacks on the Palestinian worshippers and the storming of the Al-Aqsa Mosque by Israel Regime forces and urged the people to cultivate a commitment to continue to be united and maintain peace in the country.

Meanwhile, Al-Sultan Abdullah and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah also prayed for the safety and well-being of Malaysians affected by the conflict in Sudan.

His Majesty also expressed his appreciation for the sacrifices of those on duty during Aidilfitri specifically healthcare workers, the Malaysia Armed Forces and police personnel, and all those entrusted with safeguarding the well-being, peace, and sovereignty of the country.

Al-Sultan Abdullah also advised those returning to their hometown to always prioritize safety and obey the laws that have been set. –Malaysia World News
