KOTA BARU, July 21 ― Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi today called on Muslims to stay united for the sake of ummah solidarity.

“We must set aside our differences for the sake of solidarity of the ummah.
“The federal government and the (Kelantan) state government might have different political beliefs, but we can still work together in matters involving the people and the ummah, and this must persist indefinitely,” he said in his speech at the Aidilfitri Celebration with Deputy Prime Minister at Dataran Rehal here today, which was attended by more than 5,000 people.
