I am glad that Sarawak continues to celebrate an important holy day - Good Friday. This has been a special holiday granted to the people of Sarawak by the Brooke Rajahs and remains in the Sarawak Gazette and the Almanac since that time. We continue to remain in admiration of the Malaysian government which believes in the freedom of religions in the country.
Many Christians spend this day in fasting, prayer, repentance, and meditation on the agony and suffering of Christ on the cross. We will pray for harmony and progress for our country and our countrymen.
As Christians across the world pray and fast for greater peace may I wish you too more love and more peace in the coming days.
