KUCHING: Sending Christmas greetings to the Christian community is not wrong as long as it is not in conflict with Islamic law.

“We can still visit each other to enhance relationship among the multi-races,” said Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Office (Islamic Affairs) Datuk Daud Abdul Rahman at the Christmas open house of PBB (Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu) Ranting Kampung Sagah secretary Wilfred Benjamin in Jalan Singai, Bau, on Thursday.

He said social harmony should remain intact for the future generations to enjoy.

Visiting each other is a good example of the strong bond amongst different races and religions in Sarawak, he added.

“We should remain harmonious. Do not raise extreme ideas to destroy the existing social harmony that has long been established,” he said.

He also said that the Maulidur Rasul to be celebrated on Jan 3 welcomes all races and religions to join in.
He added that celebrating different festivals with each other is the uniqueness of Sarawak.

Apart from visiting Wifred, Daud also visited Kampung Sagah village chief Vincent Agen at his open house.
Meanwhile, Wilfred said he would normally have two days of open house during Christmas and served halal food and drinks to Muslims visitors on the first day.

According to him, he normally only serves non-halal food on the second day of the open house.
