According to Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg, with strong unity among the people, and based on the Medina Charter understanding, Sarawak can be developed for all.
“Actually GPS (Gabungan Parti Sarawak) is doing that, which is based on the Charter of Medina. This is the uniqueness of Sarawak and it must be nurtured,” said Johari in his speech during a luncheon with community leaders at a local hotel here today.
Abang Johari noted it is important to develop society based on what is contained in the Medina Charter, at the same time practising fairness for all Sarawakian despite their different beliefs.
He said that in Malaysia, only Sarawak has the Unit for Other Religions (Unifor) which takes care of non-Islamic religions in the state, and it is funded by the State government.
“Through such approach, it will ensure a stable political situation for Sarawak. This is because we are respecting each others, and it has enabled us to bring fair development progress for all,” he added. — DayakDaily
