In his welcome address, President of Jamiyah Singapore, Dr Mohd Hasbi Abu Bakar mentioned about the good work by our leaders in Singapore for the constant efforts in instilling peace and harmony in the country.
“We are fortunate that in Singapore, we have built over the last many years a culture of mutual goodwill and tolerance, thanks to the noble work of our political, community and faith leaders. We always disapprove acts of violence and acts of denouncing any faith or culture.”
