KUALA LUMPUR: On the eve of Malaysia Day, the government said it will not allow any group to divide the people and country by trying to incite or pit one against the other.
Deputy Prime Minister Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said the government would do whatever is best to ensure that solidarity among the people becomes stronger.
“There will always be extremist groups who like to raise racial issues to promote certain interests. There are also groups who like to pit one against the other so that society will become divided.
“We will not allow solidarity among the people to be jeopardised. The strength of our nation is a top priority for the government,” she said in her Malaysia Day message.
Wan Azizah, who is also the women, family and community development minister, said the government would correct its weaknesses and mistakes.
“This is Malaysia, the land where we were born. Love our Malaysia, a clean Malaysia,” she added.
