‘Muslims should give same respect they get to non-Muslims’


Johor sultanah Raja Zarith Sofia Sultan Idris Shah said Muslims must show the respect they get, to fellow Malaysians who are not the same faith as them.

Taking to Facebook earlier today, Raja Zarith said Muslims in Malaysia are “very lucky” because they do not know what it’s like to be part of a minority group.

“Those of us who have studied or lived abroad know what it feels like to be a minority, and we learn to adapt. At the same time, we see the kindness and the acceptance of those who are Christians, Jews, or of other faiths, when we are in their countries.

“I remember seeing photos of Zaharah Othman, the NST London correspondent, at a church, wearing her hijab. And she’s also told me how she had been offered to perform her prayers in churches,” Raja Zarith posted.
