I wish to extend my greetings to all Hindus in Malaysia on the occasion of Thaipusam.
Thaipusam today is not just a religious festival, but a national festival that takes an important place in Malaysia’s tourism calendar. As we celebrate 2014 as Visit Malaysia Year, I hope Thaipusam celebrations in various parts of the country will attract more visitors and tourists to experience the richness of Malaysian cultures and diversity.
I will be joining our friends on a walkabout in Batu Caves on Friday to personally meet and greet those who will be gathered there.
Once again, I take this opportunity to wish you all a blessed Thaipusam.
