Two surau in Muar came under arson attack early yesterday morning, with one sustaining serious damage.
The attacks on places of worship must stop. We must be more vigilant not to allow extreme elements in the country to take advantage of the current row to undermine our multiracial peace and harmony.
This is not the time for any senseless and irresponsible reactions or responses. Repeated hostility is going to hurt the image of our society.
I hope we could play an important role to explain and help calm the people around us not to react unnecessarily, not to blanket blame any religious community and not to victimize the innocents.
Malaysia is at a crossroads. At the juncture, we need to work together to end all forms of racism, hostility and uncivilised actions.
We must not fail to help make this country a better place to live in.
