Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Mujahid Yusof has urged all peace-loving Malaysians to join the #SalamSriLanka rally to be held in the capital tonight.
He said it was important to show the world that Malaysia rejects all forms of violence irrespective of skin colour, religion or race.
“Malaysians need to show our solidarity and concern towards the victims and their families. We will show it to the world that we reject all forms of violence. We are sending the message of peace and harmony,” he said in a statement today.
Scheduled to start at 8pm today, the rally will commence in the vicinity of St Mary’s Cathedral in Jalan Raja, Kuala Lumpur.
The location was selected to show that the church was a safe place to visit, the statement said.
The #SalamSriLanka rally is organised by the Gabungan Bertindak Malaysia (GBM) in collaboration with the Committee to Promote Inter-Religious Understanding and Harmony (JKMPKA).
A series of bomb attacks at several hotels and churches in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday (April 21) reportedly killed at least 250.
