GABUNGAN Parti Sarawak (GPS) will ensure Sarawakians continue to enjoy religious freedom and live in peace and harmony.

Senior Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof said fanning religious and racial sentiments will not benefit anyone, especially in Sarawak.

“Under the GPS government, we prioritise Sarawak’s rights and the freedom of other races and religions. That’s why the Unit for Other Religions (Unifor) was established to look after the welfare of non-Islamic religions,” he said, according to a New Sarawak Tribune report.

He was commenting on Pas MP Nik Muhammad Zawawi Salleh’s remarks in the Dewan Rakyat recently that the Bible had been distorted or altered.

For those who had linked the issue with GPS, saying GPS was working with Pas under the Perikatan Nasional, Fadillah reiterated that GPS is a separate entity.

“If they are using that as a point, what’s the difference with the DAP who had also worked with Pas before?” he questioned.

“At the federal level, GPS is not part of the PN despite working together in the federal government. GPS is GPS.

“That is why we separate ourselves from Malaya (West Malaysia) in terms of politics,” he said.
