Appreciate history, say Malay Rulers
A STRONG REMINDER TO MALAYSIANS!
The Malay Rulers today urged the people to understand and appreciate the history of the formation of the country and the Federal Constitution founded on the social contract, that is the spirit of consensus and understanding among the races and the concurrence of the Malay Rulers.
"The Malay Rulers uphold that the social contract agreed upon represents an instrument which is the basis of social justice in the country that encompasses the aspirations to achieve the objective of fair economic distribution.
"The attitude of compromise among the races reflects the maturity of the people of various races in this country," said a statement, following the 222nd meeting of the Conference of Rulers on Oct 13 and 14 in Kuala Lumpur (read Bernama).
The statement said that the meeting viewed with great concern the current political trend, which was seen to be stoking racial sentiments and challenging the sovereignty of the Federal Constitution.
