Wan Junaidi said the people in the country should practise religious tolerance and respect the religion of others. — Picture by Mohd Yusof Mat IsaReligion should not be used as a means for political end that ultimately undermines racial unity in the country, said Natural Resources and Environment Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar.

He said the people in the country should practise religious tolerance and respect the religion of others.

“Using religion for politicking is a very dangerous act and will arouse hatred among the people of various races and religions in the country,” he told reporters at his Hari Raya open house here today.

He said religious differences among the various races in Sarawak had never been an issue that caused racial conflict among the people in the state.

Wan Junaidi was commenting on the overwhelming response from the people who visited Hari Raya open house of the state leaders since yesterday.

“Sarawak is truly an exemplary state as its people respect each other’s religion, culture, customs and beliefs and this contributes to racial unity,’ he added.

  3. Having said that will Wan Junadi and all Sarawak BN MPs vote against Hadi’s hudud bill in next parliamentary sitting? Hadi’s hudud bill is a clear violation of the Federal Constitution and infringement of MA63. Both Najib’s UMNO Baru and Hadi’s PAS are tabling it to try to win over the conservative Muslim votes. They are using religion to stay in power at all cost even if their actions cause a deep division among Malaysians and between moderate and conservative Muslims.

  4. Sarawak and Sabah are equal partners in Malaysia unless our 3rd and 4th CM together with their Sabah counterparts had betrayed all Sarawakians and Sabahans by compromising our autonomous power as spelled out in Malaysia Agreement 1963. Freedom of Religion was one of the most important agreement in MA63.
