Racial-religious tolerance highest in Sabah: Masidi

DAILY EXPRESS NEWS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kota Kinabalu: Racial and religious tolerance levels in Sabah are the best in the country, making it the most harmonious place in Malaysia.

Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun said this at a dinner for participants of the 1st Commonwealth Sports Tourism Conference at Shangri-La's Tanjung Aru Resort and Spa, Tuesday.

He said inter-marriages are common in the State and it is not strange to see Muslim and Christian family members living under one roof.

"Nowhere else in the country is there such high tolerance like in Sabah. It is only in Sabah that we never hear silly questions like 'what is your race?'," he said.

He said no major racial conflict has ever occurred in the State unlike in other parts in the world.

In fact, he said the tolerance level is so good that people of diverse faiths could sit in one table and consume their choice of food.

"It's common to see a Muslim taking their beef sit in one table with their non-Muslim friends eating pork and vegetarian friends having their meal."

Hence, he said Sabahans generally find it hard to fathom why people in other parts of the world fight among themselves.

  2. KAMI Rakyat Malaysia Muslim amat terkilan dengan penolakan usul oleh Speaker Dewan Rakyat, mengenai Palestin. Penolakan ini menggambarkan pemerintahan BN sekarang ini mengIKTIRAF penjajahan, pembunuhan beramai-ramai, rogol, penghinaan terhadap Islam oleh Israel. 60 tahun Israel berjaya kerana umat Islam tidak peduli ttg Palestin. Tanggungjawab ini juga adalah atas bahu orang yang mengundi BN seperti saya. Saya amat kesal kerana terlibat sama mengangkat org mengiktiraf kezaliman Israel.
