Today, we celebrate the diamond jubilee of the formation of Malaysia.
Former ambassador M Santhananaban tells us in an article on the Aliran website that we have much to learn from Sarawak and Sabah. Putrajaya must strengthen its bond of solidarity with these two territories, especially the lives of marginalised or vulnerable communities.
On this auspicious occasion, I would just like you to imagine what kind of Malaysia you would like to live in.
For me, I would like it to be a land where we celebrate our diversity and interconnectedness. Where we cherish and protect the treasures of nature. A land where no one is left behind – and everyone gets a fair share of this nation’s bounty. A land where the vulnerable and marginalised are uplifted.
