Let us continue to pray for the casualties of MH17 and their remaining loved ones.

It has been 2 months since the tragic downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukrainian airspace on 17 July, while on its routine flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.  The shock caused by this despicable act reverberated throughout the world – there was simply no excuse for such a horrific and senseless attack on an innocent civil airliner!

We wish all Malaysians at home and abroad a reflective and joyful celebration of nationhood.

Today, we mark the 51st anniversary of the formation of “Malaysia”.  Our nation was born when the Federation of Malaya merged with Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore in 1963.  (Singapore, however left the federation in 1965 to forge its own destiny.)
