COVID-19's fight to strengthen the unity of Malaysians

PUTRAJAYA: The efforts of all parties in the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak have set aside the divide between Malaysians and indirectly reinforce existing solidarity.

National Unity Minister Datuk Halimah Mohamed Sadique said in a statement today that this included efforts made by them, whether working in the frontline or sitting in isolation at home.

"We can feel the unity of all those who are united and passionate in making the COVID-19 chain successful regardless of their religious, racial and cultural background," he said.

Halimah added that the COVID-19 outbreak has left Malaysians not only through social unrest, but they have been asked to sit at home and not be allowed to meet anyone without a serious affair, but this is only natural.

He said Malaysians who were adjusting to the new normalcy of the COVID-19 outbreak needed to maintain good values ​​and remain united in maintaining national unity.

He also said Malaysians would continue to hold on to the spirit of unity despite the celebration of Hari Raya Aidilfitri this year.

"Take advantage of this Aidilfitri opportunity to build friendships with each other by connecting online and virtual technology with family members or friends," he said.

Halimah said this year the joy of Syawal will be celebrated in a new way, away from family and relatives in the village.

"Many are unable to meet their loved ones. Visiting and sharing meals during the festive season is a natural for Malaysians. We must sacrifice for the good of all," he added. - BERNAMA
