Celebrate Diversity, Promote Justice Through Moderation, Says Kurup - BERNAMA

PETALING JAYA, Aug 25 (Bernama) -- Moderation is the only way to celebrate diversity and promote justice in this country, said Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Tan Sri Joseph Kurup.

"If we dream of a future that is harmonious and peaceful, this can only be achieved through moderate attitudes. We need to have zero tolerance against religious bigotry and extremism," he said.

Launching the #'SaySomethingNice' campaign at INTI International College here today, Kurup said that moderation in its true sense provided the platform for people to be firmly convinced of the tenants of their faith, and live full lives at peace and in harmony with others.

The campaign, organised by Zubedy (M) Sdn Bhd, seeks to use the period between Aug 31 (National Day) to Sept 16 (Hari Malaysia) as a time of "peace and positivity".

During the campaign, Malaysians would be emcouraged to creatively showcase the best of Malaysia through a medium of their preference, said Zubedy managing director Anas Zubedy.
