In a message to his followers, Dr Zulkifli said that "living religiously is actually beautiful and easy if we understand the religion"

He further added that "Islam celebrates the diversity of different religious beliefs and the faith of different races. The life of Prophet Muhammad Himself showed that the walls of race and religion can be cast aside through politeness and moral values."

"I gave my Chinese neighbours cakes in conjunction with Chinese New Year.

"Maybe this is just a small annual gift, but I really hope it can contribute to the harmony of multiracial Malaysia," the Federal Territories Mufti wrote while urging Malaysians to back to the essentials to show how we are actually one big family.

"Zahirkan keindahan Islam, sebarkan semangat perpaduan," read his post.
