President of the Indian Division of the Methodist Church in Fiji and Rotuma, Reverend Dr Immanuel Reuben had called on all the politicians not to create racial division in the country.

Dr Reuben said in God’s eye , every man is equal and no one is seen as worthless.

“We are all God’s people and I would like to request all of us that we treat everyone as equal,” he said.

“Let us not condemn any man or see any man worthless.”

He said people need to love their neighbors and the neighbors were different races.

“I think we should be concern about people and as a Christian minister, it is a command by God to love our neighbours and our neighbours would mean different races,” Dr Reuben said.

“We must love them and care for them.”

He feels through racial discrimination and comments, political parties were trying to manipulate the people.

“I think the racial things that come out during the political party campaign are just to manipulate the peoples mind but at the grassroot we see that the people are united,” Dr Reuben said.

“When you go to Macuata, western division and even in Suva, you will see how different races mingle.”

He humbly requested the political parties to refrain from using race to divide the people.

“Do not use race to divide people and gain your popularity because at the end we are all people of God,” he said.

“I think it is time now that the people of Fiji put their hands together for a better Fiji and we create an environment to leave a legacy for our children and grandchildren that Fiji is one nation, one people and a nation where you want to be.”
