I Support Datin Seri Rosmah For This One!

BANTING - 3 Feb. 2011: National unity can be enhanced by understanding the religions in the country, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor said.

Rosmah said it was vital to acquire knowledge of all religions to maintain the harmonious environment in the country.

“We should adopt and practise the 1Malaysia concept as it reflects national unity,” she said in a speech after launching the inaugural lantern festival here at Fo Guang Shan Dong Zen Temple on Tuesday.

Deputy Women, Family and Community Development Minister Senator Heng Seai Kie, who read the speech on behalf of Rosmah, said the Prime Minister’s wife was unable to attend the ceremony as she was visiting flood victims in Johor.

Understanding each other’s religions, Rosmah said, would provide a good future for the younger generation.

“Our differences should not hinder unity,” she added. Instead, she stressed Malaysians should be proud to be in a multiracial country.

“It is important to be united as I hope some day we could be a role model to others,” Rosmah said.

P/S: However, the main theme of the speech has lost a bit of its weight because the speech was not come directly from Datin Seri Rosmah but was read on behalf by a deputy minister. Those who were at the temple must be excited and looking forward to the attendance of the PM's wife but turned out to be disappointment because Datin Seri Rosmah did not turn up, instead was represented by a Chinese deputy minister. What's the anti climax! Perhaps, she should have been to the ceremony and then leave to visit the flood victims immediately after that. This will put the weight and significant to the content of the speech and the importance of the 1Malaysia concept.
