Federal Territories Mufti Zulkifli Mohamad today handed out cakes to his Chinese neighbours in conjunction with Chinese New Year tomorrow.

"Today, I feted my Chinese neighbours with cakes in conjunction with the Chinese New Year.

"It may be a small gesture but I hope it can contribute to harmony among Malaysians of diverse races.

"Let us go back to basics in that we are all actually one big family," he said in a Facebook post today.

Zulkifli said Islam celebrates religious and racial diversity and that the Prophet Muhammad himself showed that being polite could overcome racial and religious obstacles.
