Let us pray together

It is heartening to read Senator Zaid Ibrahim's noble plan to bridge the gap between the various races in Malaysia among the youths who will be the key to the success or failure of the country.

The current political milieu has certainly caused a deep division among the people (no thanks to Ahmad Ismail) and we should be glad and thankful to Senator Zaid Ibrahim for launching the 'MyFuture' foundation to bring unity among the people.

In my earlier blog titled: 'Let us live happily together in Malaysia' ( Unity category), I have wrote on the importance of educating the young ones on racial unity and integration. Further to this, I also suggested an idea to have all the various places of prayers to be built on a single piece of land and which I hope will complement the noble idea of Senator Zaid Ibrahim.

I would like to recap and reinforce as follow:

1) As land is aplenty in Malaysia, to choose and identify a suitable location will not be a major problem.

2) The major religions in Malaysia are mainly: Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Taoism, Sikhism etc. Whether they are a major or minor religion, let us identify them all.

3) The road to the places of worship must be through one door. As the entrance to this venue will be through a single entry point, a congregation of all Malaysians of different faiths, rather than segregation, can be achieved. It will be truly wonderful to see the people of various races going to the same place and entering the same gate for prayers.
What a happy feeling and a joyous sight for all !
This will indeed bring to reality for the people to say, 'Let us pray together' .

4) The land must be vast enough to house a non-prayer hall for inter-faith dialogues and the various activities as suggested by Senator Zaid Ibrahim.

Can someone start the ball rolling for this project?

What special name can you think of for this project?

I agree with Zorro that Senator Zaid is the best person to initiate this project.

However, the most important fist step is to promote and 'sell' the benefits of this project to all the relevant religious bodies.

Once they have accepted and see the benefits,then the following steps will be easy.

With good planning and design, this project which is the only one in the world,can boost international tourism for Malaysia.

Over to you Senator Zaid !

I understand its RPK’s birthday this Saturday. I`m already sending him a raya card everyday. Today I sent him a birthday card. I appeal to others as well to send him a birthday card and express our support, our solidarity and our strength for and with him. Until he is free I will not be…none of us will be…
