Sept 16 is Malaysia Day – Malaysiakini Sms 19/10/09
19/10: From next year onwards, Hari Malaysia on Sept 16 will be made a national public holiday, says Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak./MKINI
The Prime Minister is indeed serious in realising his ‘1Malaysia’ concept. By turning Sept 16 as an NATIONAL public holiday the government is recognising Sabah and Sarawak’s roles as partners to the Federation of Malaysia.
They’re indeed still others who bitches about the sincerity of the whole thing. When I sent out this sms this morning some replied back saying that its not relevant since Sabah was already celebrating on every Sept 16. (Of course some of them hadn’t read properly of was written)
August 31 will still be celebrated as Merdeka Day to mark independence from colonial rule.
I find that the government of the day is working overtime in convincing the rakyat that they’re the real deal. And they are winning.
Hmmm. Come to think of it this article was written a few days ago by Commodities Minister Tan Sri Bernard Dompok…
