Malaysia - Happy Independence Day

So, the Prime Minister of Malaysia commented on the Bersih 4.0 rally saying kita nak sambut Hari Merdeka, ada pula orang nak tunjuk perasaan. Well, in my opinion, the Bersih 4.0 rally is done at just the right time, 2 days prior to Malaysia’s Independence Day. To me, the Bersih 4.0 rally coincides just nice with this year’s National Day theme “Sehati Sejiwa” (One Heart, One Soul). You can see many people, regardless of race and religion, even those in Switzerland and other parts of the world are fighting for justice and to end corruption in the country.

I don’t know about the rest of the Malaysian citizenS, but sometimes when I listen to those patriotic songs, tears fill my eyes – simple because I know many people have fought to achieve independence for Malaysia and it’s just a beautiful country. But then, as of today, it’s sad to see too much corruption, too much discrepancy.

Everyone knows that the government is not just. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be thousands of people participating in the so-called illegal Bersih rally. Well, when things get tough, we have to do the right thing to ensure that Malaysia, being our promise land is back to being a peaceful country, ruled justly and really unite as One Heart, One Soul.

May we, the citizens of Malaysia fight for a just and clean government that is not selfish or that works for self-benefit.

This is Malaysia, a beautiful and peaceful country, rich with cultures with a diversity of race and religion. May we fight to keep Malaysia as such.
