On the same day that meat was provocatively left at the entrance to a mosque on mainland Penang, another group of concerned Malaysians participated in an inter-religious ‘Walk in the Park’ which took them to several landmark places of worship in George Town this evening.
One of the participants, Betty Siew, said on Facebook:
What an awesome time we had this evening: the weather was great, the crowd was wonderful, from every walk (of life), young and old; and even as we walked the route of Harmony, many just walked along to join us. Thanks and kudos to the organisers, Jenny Liew, Aida Redza and all the way from KL, Azrul Mohd Khalib, for making this happen in The Pearl of the Orient!
This is the second such walk. The first was held at KLCC recently.
Jenny Liew adds:
… the event went on very well! Participation was beyond expectations. Really thankful to God for His favour! …took us a while to organise ourselves as the group was quite big. … awesome support from Padre Charles Samuel and members from St George’s! A big THANK YOU.
This is the Malaysia we hope to build. Won’t you step forward as well to realise this vision?
