BUKIT LANJAN: Syed Razak raises funds for Chinese school, temple, Buddhist associations in Kepong

Race and religion must not come in the way of community leadership and charity for good causes.

And that was what Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff showed at SJK (C) Desa Jaya’s school hall last night (Friday Sept 29, 2017).

Syed Razak and his Pek Moh Bukit Lanjan team of supporters successfully organised a maiden 40-table Bukit Lanjan Charity Night 2017 dinner show.

“Though the amount raised is nothing to shout about, it still gave me great pleasure to have pulled it off. I should be able to contribute much more should I get elected as Bukit Lanjan assemblyman in the coming 14th General Election (GE14),” he added.

Syed Razak is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in GE14.

Speaking from the sidelines, Syed Razak said he had last December pledged to deliver people and community-centric services to Bukit Lanjan constituents if given the chance.

He reiterated his stand as a Malaysian citizen. “I am Malaysian First …”

Syed Razak said: “Political and community leaders, if elected, must be prepared to serve as a Malaysian. Race and religion have no place, whatsoever, in service and leadership in multi-racial multi-religious Malaysian communities.

“If elected, I will use my public office’s influence to deliver community services, not for anything else.”

At the dinner, Syed Razak handed cheques written out for RM5,000 to SJK (C) Desa Jaya, RM2,000 to the school Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), RM1,500 to Samnak Sambodhi Buddhist Temple, RM1,000 to Persatuan Peganut Dewa Cheenam Thang and RM1,000 to Zhong Yuan Prayer Association Desa Jaya.

Diners were treated to show by three young female singers and dancers before they were surprised by a guest recording local artiste Lim Se Kian who belted a string of Mandarin oldies. (View the above video clips).
