DI MANA BUMI DIPIJAK DI SITU LANGIT DIJUNJUNG : BANGSA MALAYSIA!
Today too many of our citizens have forgotten ‘Bangsa Malaysia’ – as the new normal in our country is to talk about Malay, Chinese, Indian, and ‘others; including the many native denominations, especially in Sabah and Sarawak.
We all need the Malaysian Constitution, the Malaysian Flag, the Malaysian Ringgit, Malaysian citizenship, Malaysian Passport, the Malaysian Government Departments, etc – but when it comes to citizenship ‘Malaysian’ seems to be something ‘alien’ as we simply can’t associate ourselves with it! Very ironic indeed!!
All our learned friends in every ethnic group need to think about this. Why should the politicians divide us by race when we belong to Malaysia as one nationality – no matter wherever our ancestors came from! DI MANA BUMI DIPIJAK DI SITU LANGIT DIJUNJUNG – we learned it in our school days! Forgotten because of the short-sighted politicians?
What happened to our own intelligence?? Time to do some revision – especially during the onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic! For a change let us think back and ‘feel the Malaysian’ spirit!!
