Happy Ramadan to all my Muslim friends!

Ramadan, the month of fasting for Muslims all over the world, has just begun yesterday.

I wish all my Muslim freinds a happy and meaningful Ramadan.

It has has been said that all religions is one.

A good friend of mine, who is a Buddhist for some years now, opines that "A good Muslim is at the same time a good Christian/Buddhist/Hindu/ Sikh/Jew/Taoist...". And I agree with him.

In a multireligious society like ours, we must learn to respect all other religions practised and followed by our brothers and sisters of other faiths.

No one (including the politicians) should make use of religion for selfish gain or to serve his or her personal agenda.

And freedom of religion must include the freedom to join and the freedom to leave any religion. Merely leaving a religion must not be construed as a traitor of that religion.

Salam sejahtera!
