The chief minister said things were a bit different in the peninsula.
“In West Malaysia, there are only three major races and a few indigenous people, but they never stop bickering. It is stupid.
“Here we have 35 races and yet we are very peaceful and live in unity and harmony,” he said at a Hari Raya gathering at Lundu Sport Complex yesterday.
Adenan said everyone should be thankful they could live in peace and harmony. They only have to look at the gruesome conflicts in the Middle East and in Africa to know what disunity and wars could bring.
“If we read the news or watch television, the Arabs, the Palestinians, and the Africans never stop killing each other. It is very bad.”
