31st August 2008. It’s Malaysia’s 51st Independence Day. Also known as “Hari Merdeka” by Malaysians.
Hari Merdeka (Independence Day) is a national day of Malaysia commemorating the independence of the Federation of Malaya from British colonial rule. In a wider context, it is to celebrate the formation of Malaysia.
Are we truly free?
Independence means that the nation is free. For that to be true, they must at least be able to think freely, express and exchange opinion, and, obtain and disseminate information without fear or favour.
Anyway, Happy Birthday Malaysia.
