Muslim leaders abroad looking at Malaysia for inspiration
KANGAR: Muslim leaders the world over have shown a keen interest to further develop their country and people the Malaysian way, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said yesterday.
He said he and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak have often been approached by leaders who wanted to know “our success story”.
“The leaders include the newly-elected Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, who had conveyed his intention to Datuk Seri Mohamed Khalid Nordin when he visited the Middle- Eastern country recently.
“I recently met my Sudanese counterpart and he also wanted to know our success story,” he said when attending Iftar (breaking of fast) with more than 5,000 people at Dewan 2020 here.
Also present were Muhyiddin's wife Puan Seri Noorainee Abdul Rahman and Perlis Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Md Isa Sabu.
Muhyiddin said Malaysians must always count their bless ings for the good life they were enjoying.
“Syria, a nation rich in civilisation, is now in the ruins because of infighting. We must learn from others' past mistakes and that of our own.
“Let's not allow anyone or any irresponsible group to destroy the unity and socio-economic development we are enjoying because we have all worked very hard for them,” he said.
Muhyiddin later gave away duit Raya and food hampers to some 1,850 poor and needy people.
He also launched a book on the al-Hussain floating mosque, which is in Kuala Perlis.
