Najib: Street demonstrations & insulting leaders not the way of moderate Malaysians

KUALA LUMPUR - Street demonstrations and humiliating national leaders does not reflect the moderate stand of rational thinking Malaysians, said Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

In reminding the people to love the country, the Pri‎me Minister said one should not be extreme in one's actions and resolve issues by taking the moderate path.

Najib, who is also Barisan Nasional president, said that Malaysia had always managed to weather challenges‎ no matter how serious, because her people are resilient.

"We are strong and can overcome crises because each and every one of us love the country. When we have that feeling, we will not do anything extreme and ‎be rational," he said when opening the Malaysian Makkal Sakti party's seventh annual general meeting Sunday.

Najib thanked Makkal Sakti president Datuk R.S. Thanenthiran for denouncing Bersih 4, adding that he was co‎nfident that its party members played no part in the rally.

He urged the Indian community to have confidence in the Government to steer the country out of the current economic crisis, but pointed out that it could not be done if there was no political stability.

"Your theme for the AGM is 'Malaysia Moving Forward' and I support this. We must not look back and work towards the successful future of this nation," he said.
