Malaysians Lucky To Observe Ramadan In Comfort, Says Najib
He pointed out that there were countries which had gained independence about the same time as Malaysia or earlier, but their people were exposed to various problems and threats.
As such, Malaysians must uphold the country's independence gained 50 years ago for greater progress and prosperity, he said when attending a breaking of the fast with the people of Kampung Batu 8, Lepar here this evening.
He said the government would also continue with efforts to bring further development to the country so that the people could enjoy a better standard of living.
"No one can deny that the government has brought much changes to the country," Najib said.
At the function, which was also attended by Najib's wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, the Deputy Prime Minister presented food aid to 67 senior citizens and single mothers.
He said that Muslims should cleanse their soul during the month of Ramadan to become a much better person.
