Malaysia Day, different celebrations

Malaysia is 49 today. It marks the day when the Federation of Malaysia was formally formed among North Borneo (Sabah), Sarawak, Singapore and Malaya in 1963.

The declaration was made by Tun Abdul Rahman Putra al-Haj, our first prime minister who also paved the way for the Independence of Malaya on Aug 31, 1957.

In his Malaysia Day message, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak called on the people to uphold unity among the various race, religions and cultures in the country as to ensure continuous growth and stability for the country.


He also reminded Malaysians to remember and appreciate the sacrifices of past leaders in charting the path that has led the country achieved what it has today.

The government has chosen Bintulu, one of the main contributors to the national economic growth, as the venue for this year Malaysia Day celebration.

However, the opposition Pakatan Rakyat is celebrating it in Kuching with a signing of a 'Kuching Declaration'. Details will be released later today.

The declaration will be inked by PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang, Pas president Datuk Seri Hadi Awang, Sarawak PKR chairman Baru Bian, Sarawak DAP chairman Wong Ho Leng and Sarawak Pas commissioner Adam Ahid.

Pakatan Rakyat says Malaysia Day is more significant to Sarawak than the Merdeka Day on August 31.

I dunno if Sarawakians and Sabahans agree to such a notion...

salam tuan,

pakatan rakyat tidak menyertai sambutan hari merdeka bagi menandakan bagaimana mereka tidak menghormati kemerdekaan negara.

di kuching, mereka adakan majlis sambutan berbeza untuk hari malaysia, kononnya untuk membentuk satu malaysia baru dengan sarawak dan sabah.

sebenarnya hajat mereka ialah untuk berkuasa dengan mengapi-apikan sentimen anti-kuala lumpur di kalangan rakyat malaysia timur.

mereka sudah kehilangan modal politik sebenarnya dan oleh itu terpaksa berbuat sesuatu bagi menaikkan api kemarahan rakyat sarawak dan sabah terhadap semenanjung.

inilah yang ingin mereka tiupkan!

1963 = sambutan ke 49 not 46 rite?

masih di BH said...

jai,

pembangkang ni dah tak macam parti politik tapi lebih kepada sebuah pertubuhan subversif.

mereka menjalankan apa saja dakyah untuk mengeliru dan menghasut rakyat agar membenci kerajaan.

parti pembangkang di negara lain bukan begitu.

di negara lain, pembangkangnya tidak menentang kerajaan dan menghasut rakyat tetapi memperkenalkan sesuatu yang lebih baik kepada mereka agar rakyat memilihnya pada pilihanraya akan datang.

berbeza dengan pakatan rakyat yang kerjanya hanya menghasut rakyat dan mengecam segala usaha yang dibuat oleh barisan nasional, seolah-olah semuanya tidak baik.

ini bukan politik namanya!

mr kudita said...

anwar is getting nowhere with his ways, and so are kit siang and hadi awang.

malaysians are getting sick and tired of their politics which only incite hatred towards the nation and among them!
