Xmas Greeting
by Lim Kit Siang

(Petaling Jaya,  Friday): Happy Christmas to all Christians and Malaysians.  On the eve of the new millennium,  let Malaysians regardless of religion make a commitment to build a bridge to uphold the constitutional guarantee of freedom of religion and  even more important to forge inter-religious understanding, tolerance and goodwill in the country.

The time has come for the formation of an Inter-Religious Council where all the major religions are represented so that Malaysia can become a model nation for the world where a diversity of races,  languages, cultures and religions can co-exist in mutual respect, peace and harmony.

*Lim Kit Siang - DAP National Chairman
