Janji Ditepati a universal theme, says Najib
ALOR SETAR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said those who question the Merdeka Day celebration theme Janji Ditepati are people who have failed to fulfil their promises.
“There is no need to question the theme unless the person who raised it never fulfilled his promises,” he said in his speech during the 1Malaysia Aidilfitri Feast at the Darulaman Stadium parking area here.
Najib said Janji Ditepati was a universal and Islamic principle because Islam wanted its followers to remember the promises that they made.
“The biggest promise that a Muslim makes is to Allah while the promises that we make between humans are important because we gain trust only if we fulfil our promises.”
Najib said that as the government, Barisan Nasional and its elected representatives had always fulfilled their promises.
He added that if Malaysians wished for the country to remain peaceful and stable, they should fulfil their promises to the country.
