DPM’s Wesak Day message: Reject all forms of extremism

PUCHONG: Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail today urged Malaysians to reject all forms of racial and religious extremism.

Speaking in conjunction with the Wesak Day celebration which falls tomorrow, she also said that ‘Malaysia Baru’ will take time to be created and it cannot happen overnight.

“Malaysia Baru is about us being together. Malaysia Baru that is being built is the result of the cooperation from all of us.

“We reject all forms of religious and racial extremism. That is the formula of our Malaysia. I pray that the formula can be continued and strengthened,’ she said.

Being only one year at the helm, Wan Azizah said that Pakatan Harapan needs time to show changes to the people, compared with the previous government which was in power for 61 years.

“All of you have taken your frustration to the ballot box and written history by changing the government for the first time ever since Malaysia achieved its independence.

“I understand the hope is high and the change desired is expected to be achieved fast,” she added.
