KUCHING, Sept 9: The various houses of worship and religious organisations that have benefitted from the Unit for Other Religions (Unifor) financial aid are urged to assess the unit’s performance and give feedback.
Minister in charge of Unifor Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas said this would allow the three-year-old body to improve itself.
“Our objective is afterall to give you the best of our service. But we need feedback – the bouquets and brickbats – for us to move forward,” he said in his speech at the 29th Biennial Diocesan Synod Dinner here last night (Sept 8).
“We might not have been able to address issues in the most appropriate ways, so give us your feedback for us to improve,” he added.
Meanwhile, Uggah thanked the Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg for the latter’s assistance and commitment to help Unifor.
“Besides these annual allocations to Unifor, he has given other grants totalling RM27.5 million to help the various non-Islamic faiths in the state.
“He has also allocated a 1.214 hectare premium site in Kuching to build Unifor office building.
“We are now doing consultation on its architecture style to depict images of an enduring racial and religious harmony in Sarawak,” Uggah said.— DayakDaily
