A new concept based on the Malay and Islamic agenda led by Dr Mahathir Mohamad will be established.

At a "solat hajat and doa selamat" prayer ceremony in Putrajaya last night, Mahathir who is also Pejuang chairman, hinted at the establishment of the idea in an effort to reunite the Malays in the struggle to defend Malaysia.

"This is a Muslim Malay group. The move is necessary if we want to save our country, our nation, our religion," he said.

The prayer ceremony was attended by leaders and members of the National Indian Muslim Alliance Party, Pejuang, Parti Bumiputera Perkasa Malaysia (Putra) and Parti Barisan Jemaah Islamiah Se Malaysia.

Putra president Ibrahim Ali said Mahathir was expected to announce the establishment of the idea at Yayasan Al-Bukhary, Kuala Lumpur on Aug 4.

Ibrahim said the idea would involve several Malay political parties as well as NGOs.
