KUCHING: Malaysians from all walks of life have been urged to celebrate Malaysia Day, which is today and to remember the sacrifices made by the nation’s forebears.
“Sept 16, 1963 is the date Malaysia was born, and until now, we still live in peace and harmony with people from different races and religions,” said Teresang Dayak Miri chairman Ugik Jalit.
“As citizens of Malaysia, the love for peace and unity has kept us together and we have respected each other as always.”
He added that as Covid-19 is still ravaging the country, the public needed to cooperate with the authorities “to make our nation safe from the virus”.
“Your cooperation is significant and important as this is our responsibility too, not just the authorities’.
“Make sure we all comply with the standard operating procedures and safety guidelines to keep each other safe, and practice good personal hygiene as always.
“So, let’s take care of each other and keep our nation safe. Happy Malaysia Day!”
