WHD Founder Dr.Abdul Basit Syed, started his speech by requesing a voice of silence to pay tribute to the victims of the recent terror attacks in France, Austria, Saudi Arabia, together with remembering innocent lives lost daily in this pandemic. His message “We call on the political and religious leaders, both local and international, to act responsibly with tolerance, so as to not inflame the current situation that is already vulnerable and at risk. All religions are pathways to peace and therefore no religion can condone or justify such horrid actions that impact the lives of many peace loving people” He read the WHD peace pledge “Love Conquers All” which was inspiring.
“Malaysia’s strength lies in the people’s maturity as they do not buy into instigations that were intended to sow hatred within society,” said Dato’ Doraisamy, Secretary General of WHD Malaysia.
“While The COVID-19 pandemic has led the world to an unprecedented despair, causing economic and social challenges, we should foster deeper reconciliation to resolve key global conflicts,” said Ahmad Tarmizi, Secretary General of HUMANiTi Malaysia.
