DPM CALLS ON MUSLIMS TO BE WITH THE GOVERNMENT IN DEVELOPING MOSQUES
KUALA KANGSAR, June 15 (Bernama) - Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has urged the Muslim community to be together with the government in matters concerning the development of mosques.
He said although the government was concerned and channelled considerable allocations for this purpose, it was also the responsibility of the Muslim community to participate in the development of mosques, expecially those with the capacity.
"If there is no capacity, only then can they apply for assistance. It is immaterial if the aid is small, what is important is sincerity. Thus even a piece of stone is important in building a mosque if there is sincerity," he said after attending the breaking of fast and Maghrib prayers with the local community at the Kubang Pekan Mosque, here today.
