KUALA LUMPUR – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today refuted allegations by certain parties which linked the moderate stand of the government to liberalism.
He said the allegation was completely wrong as the moderate movement by the government was based on Islamic teachings as taught by Prophet Muhammad.
“The moderate movement is based on Islamic teachings as the Prophet said: Do good with sincerity and moderation, take the straight and moderate route so that you will reach the desired destination, heaven,” he said in a PM’s Radio Broadcast uploaded onto his blog NajibRazak.com today.
Najib fought for the moderate approach since 2010 on various global political conflicts including combating violence and the move had won the admiration of world bodies such as the United Nations and members of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), recently.
However some parties at home were disputing the approach and linking the moderate movement by the government to liberalism. – BERNAMA
