Official Statement of Yayasan Albukhary - September 1, 2015

01 Sep 2015

Assalamualaikum dan salam sejahtera.

The Albukhary Foundation would like to stress that its Chairman, Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Albukhary was not the author of an article, which first surfaced on 29thAugust 2015 titled Luahan Hati Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Bukhary Berkenaan Najib Razak.

This article has misled the public into thinking or believing that it was he whom had written it. The said article has gained traction and been reproduced in other social media sites and was also spread via the Whatsapp messaging application.

Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar is the founder of the Albukhary Foundation and has served as the chairman since its inception in March 1996. His belief is grounded on the Muslim faith of Taqwa (submission to God) and Ehsan (Compassion) to create an equitable order in society.

He strongly prescribes to the values of hard work, discipline, honesty and humility. His commitment to society and nation building is unquestionable.

The Albukhary Foundation is a charitable organization with a vision of forging a more equitable and tolerant world through social welfare, education and cultural initiatives that bridge the divide between the haves and have-nots, and between the Muslim and non-Muslim worlds. As such, the foundation is apolitical and non-discriminatory.

We do not condone the act of impersonating Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar including any unlawful or unauthorized use of his name.

As such to avoid doubt or confusion, the Albukhary Foundation’s website continues to be the sole official public medium for Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar.

We at the Albukhary Foundation pray for the continuous success and growth of our beloved Malaysia.
