I would like to wish all Buddhists a very happy Wesak Day.
Buddhism advocates harmony and selflessness. Buddhism’s essential teachings, and the sharing principle, are in line with our philosophy of moderation — which we strive to promote and practise in our daily lives in Malaysia.
The government will continue to do everything we can to protect the harmonious co-existence of our different religions and ethnicities from the threat of extremism.
For it is Malaysia’s diversity that is our strength.
Long may this continue to be our most treasured asset, and a source of pride and unity for us all.
Once again, happy Wesak Day!
