Nik Aziz - The Man of Peace

                            Meeting Karpal at his home in Penang

Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat,the top PAS spiritual leader scored 2 major victories for peace over his weekend visit to Penang.First his unprecedented call on DAP Chairman and political antagonist Karpal Singh at the latter's home and the second was his meeting with the Bishop of Penang Sebastian Francis.Both these visits come at a time when Muslim- Christian tensions were running high of late,leading to the planned burning of bibles in Penang.

                 Meeting Bishop Sebastian Francis of Penang with his "peace cake"
Nik Aziz is the most sought after man for peace among the various races and faiths in the country.He is respected by both the Muslims and non-Muslims alike for his life of simplicity and honesty.He is a symbol of what a real man of God should be - simple,honest,righteous and above all possess love for fellow men regardless of race or creed. We hope there will be more such people like him among Muslims and non-Muslims alike to overcome all inter-faith disputes amicably.
On this 82nd birthday we wish TG Nik Aziz a very happy and memorable birthday. We pray that God (in whatever name we prefer} will bless him with good health for many more years so that he can continue to be a guiding and moderating figure for inter-faith harmony in the country.We pray that God will bring together more moderate minded leaders like Tok Guru from all religions to the forefront of our nation so that the suspicion and hate among the people of different faiths will soon disappear from the hearts of all Malaysians.

Happy birthday Tog Guru.

God bless Malaysia
