In my speech at the launch of the Christian for Peace and Harmony (CPHM) movement, I stressed that the term ‘pendatang’ or migrants should never be used to refer to a Malaysian.
Such divisive terms are misused to ignite and breed racial as well as religious conflict in the country. As Prime Minister, I will not allow such terms to cause segregation.
I am an advocate of wasatiyyah or moderation in everything we do. All religions preach moderation but it is extremism that creates conflict rather than unify the multicultural society of the country.
