MALAYSIANS should welcome the decision by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to start an all-out war against crime.
This situation is serious, and I hope all Malaysians understand how serious it is.Thus, I appeal to all Malaysians to participate and support the authorities in their goals.
On humanitarian grounds, I wish to emphasise that life is precious. Taking another person's life is an unforgivable act.
Taking a person's life not only affects the victim, but it also affects his family, who will experience pain and trauma.
Therefore, all must remember that we should and must not be allowed to kill a human being.
At the same time, when we have a quiet moment, let us pray for peace and the wellbeing of our nation.
Malaysia is a beautiful country. We need to restore the good relationship among her people, that we once possessed.
We need to live peacefully and harmoniously, for the good of the nation.
Tan Sri Robert Phang, Justice of Peace and Social Care Foundation chairman
