KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 28 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob today launched the  National Unity Action Plan and the Kami @Keluarga Malaysia Unity Plan in his effort to strengthen interracial and interreligious harmony.

The country’s ninth prime minister who initiated the concept of Keluarga Malaysia — which translates to the “Malaysian Family” — said there is a need for people to be more open in their thinking and focus more on their shared traits than their differences.

“This revelation is also significant so that the multi-ethnic society can control speech and activities that touch on religious sensitivities as well as culture of other ethnicities which often trigger negative reactions,” he said during the launch at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre here.
