KUALA TERENGGANU, Sept 4 — Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin reminded Muslims in the country to have awareness and the spirit of Islamic brotherhood that was needed to together ensure peace.

He said the unity and peace now needed to be defended by having a strong spirit of cooperation among all Muslims irrespective of political leanings.

"Muslims in the country are very lucky when compared to many Islamic countries that are faced with many problems.

"They are faced with crisis, clashes and sometimes poverty," he said.

Muhyiddin was speaking after prayers at the mosque of Kampung Teluk Menara, Manir near here, Thursday night.

Muhyiddin said in Malaysia people lived in good conditions and that was why it was Muslims' obligation to be the backbone of the country, strengthen congregation and unity amongst themselves.

He said in the democratic system practiced in the country anyone can have different political ideologies but unity needed to be paid attention.

"What needs to be held by Muslims is that unity needs to be strengthened and could not be neglected just because of political differences," he said. (PNA/BERNAMA)
