PUTRAJAYA: A new concept based on the Malay and Islamic agenda led by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad will be initiated.
At a “solat hajat and doa selamat” prayer ceremony here Wednesday (Aug 3) night, Dr Mahathir, who is also Parti Pejuang Tanah Air (Pejuang) chairman, hinted at the establishment of the idea in an effort to reunite the Malays in the struggle to defend Malaysia.
“This is a Muslim Malay group. The move is necessary if we want to save our country, our nation, our religion,” he said.
The prayer ceremony was attended by leaders and members of the National Indian Muslim Alliance Party (Iman), Pejuang, Parti Bumiputera Perkasa Malaysia (Putra) and Parti Barisan Jemaah Islamiah Se-Malaysia (Berjasa).
Meanwhile, Putra president Datuk Ibrahim Ali said Dr Mahathir is expected to announce the establishment of the idea at Yayasan Al-Bukhary, Kuala Lumpur on Thursday (Aug 4).
Ibrahim said the idea would involve several Malay political parties as well as non-governmental organisations (NGOs). – Bernama
