We can, once again, appreciate our diverse culture as Malaysian Hindus mark the auspicious day of Thaipusam. Hindus mark this day by offering their thanks and sacrifice at temples throughout the country.
Many will also be making vows and praying for a better life and a secure happy future for their children. It is a basic human wish to improve and progress towards a better quality of life for one’s self and ones loved ones.
The Government knows and understands this instinct for progress and calls upon Malaysian Hindus to continue to place their ‘nambikei’ in Government. With this trust, the Government will be able to effectively engage with and help the community overcome your challenges and achieve your personal visions for a better life. We remain committed to fulfilling all our promises to the community and we will do what is needed to help people achieve their dreams.
I take this opportunity to extend my greetings to all Hindus in Malaysia as they observe Thaipusam and mark this important meaningful day.
