In multi-racial Malaysia, religion plays a key role in forming mind sets, perspectives and narratives in social, economic, political and educational spheres. Since independence and the formation of Malaysia, citizens are guaranteed freedom to participate in any religious faith under the Constitution and the values of Rukun Negara. However, after seven decades, religious conflicts still threatens the goal of social harmony because of the nation’s outdated isolationist education policy on how Malaysians should relate to each other.
The main goal of this forum and others like it is to identify values, practices and perspectives of every religion in Malaysia that has important spiritual values towards forming the Keluargaku concept of nation building. The Tan Sri Omar Center believes that the time has come to appreciate each other’s religion through a more meaningful engagement of social and spiritual discourse in nation building. The discussions and content of the forum series will be published in a book that will be used to reeducate the rakyat in the near future about inclusive and participatory engagements at houses of worships and other community affairs.
