The Legacy and Inspiration Left To Us By Tunku

Posted on August 17, 2007



If you missed the announcement of the Bangsa Malaysia Merdeka Get-together, click here to go to the post.


I am working on a project to examine and try to build on the legacy and the inspiration that Tunku who, in my view was the greatest statesman this country has ever produced, left us.

Someone sent me this by e-mail. It is a quote from Tunku.

Everyone must try to help and see that the people are one-minded, with one loyalty and one aim, to make Malaya – the land we love – a happy abode for all of us. If we all do this then we can guarantee liberty, security, prosperity and happiness for the future.” – 1959

What is the greatest legacy that this man left us?

What is his greatest contribution to us?

Does he inspire you? If so, how so?

How do we as a nation honour Bapa Malaysia?

Would you share your thoughts with me on these questions?
