"Please tell me according to your ability, be it much or little. It will be my task to penetrate its meaning by way of a hundred or thousand methods." - Sariputta, the Buddha's chief disciple.
What is to be done :
Support all who is for Perpaduan regardless of race, religion, party or background.
Support Perpaduan and support all who support Perpaduan; do not tolerate Perpecahan; send a clear message that divide and rule has no place in today’s Malaysia.
Support unity and support anyone who believes in unity and are taking steps to unite us. Whether it comes from an NGO or individuals like Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia (SABM), the government - 1MALAYSIA, or an internationally affiliated organization like Malaysian Interfaith Network (MIN), anyone who promotes unity deserves our full backing.
We the Rakyat must do all we can to uphold our Perpaduan. Do not allow others to poke holes, belittle in any way or look down on efforts of togetherness. When we allow the non support of Perpaduan, we are promoting Perpecahan and allowing the ultras to win. Support Perpaduan, give credit and honour efforts; regardless of whose efforts they are; as long as it is an effort to unite us, give your vote, lend your voice and join in the support. Even when we are being critical, be constructive and always speak in the positives.
Encourage racial and religious based organizations to embrace a more universal approach. Promote inclusivity; when speaking of the poor, speak of the poor from all races, give data from all groups. When talking about uplifting education standards, talk about how we can lift the standards for all groups of Malaysians, not just any one group.
Let our leaders know that we want them to speak to all of us, to all Malaysians, and not to speak only to Malays or Chinese or Indians or East Malaysians or Christians, Buddhist, Hindu or Muslims, for we are Malaysians and we are all these, so speak to us all as one, as Rakyat Malaysia.
Brother and Sister Malaysians choose Perpaduan and choose it wholeheartedly; only then can we win over those who promote Perpecahan.
At zubedy our programs draw strength from shared values and traditions. We believe at the heart, all Malaysians want good things for themselves and for their brother and sister Malaysians simply because our nation cannot prosper as a whole if some of us are left behind.
Let us add value,
Have A Meaningful Wesak
