Four things to make Hari Raya on the nationís 50th Merdeka anniversary most meaningful

Hari Raya Message 
by Lim Kit Siang  

(Parliament, Friday) : Hari Raya this year coincides with the nationís 50th Merdeka anniversary. 

Celebrating this yearís Hari Raya on the occasion of the nationís 50th Merdeka anniversary will be most meaningful if there is a national resolution and government political will to achieve four things: 

  • A low-crime Malaysia where everyone, whether citizen, tourist or investor can feel safe again in the streets, public places and the privacy of the homes and where the fundamental rights to be free from  crime and fear of crime are not just empty and meaningful words.

  • Zero tolerance for corruption, abuses of power and financial scandals.

  • Restore national and international confidence in a truly independent judiciary and a just rule of law, which will go a long way to enhance Malaysiaís international competitiveness which has suffered considerable erosion in recent years; and

  • A Malaysian national consciousness and identity transcending racial, religious or political differences.

 Selamat Hari Raya to all Muslims in Malaysia.



* Lim Kit Siang, Parliamentary Opposition Leader, MP for Ipoh Timur & DAP Central Policy and Strategic Planning Commission Chairman
