The people should continue to abide by the laws and the constitution of the country to ensure it remains a model of unity, said Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin.
"Malaysia needs to remain a peaceful and prosperous country and we should not let anything undermine our harmonious living,” he said when speaking at a programme to inculcate noble values at Masjid Dato’ Hj Abd Ghani, Sagil Parit 2, Tangkak tonight.
Also present was Home Ministry secretary-general Alwi Ibrahim.
Muhyiddin said Malaysia had succeeded in preserving its peace and harmony although the people are of different races and religions.
If the people continue to adhere to this principle, Malaysia will go on developing to scale greater heights, he said.
He said as such, Muslims should draw a lesson from Ramadan to increase their efforts as commanded by Islam to make them successful and exemplary people.
"However, we are aware that the government is facing various challenges, including how to enhance cooperation in the spirit of brotherhood and unity among ourselves.
"There should not be disputes and there should not be disunity caused by differences in ideology and views among ourselves,” he said. - Bernama
