PM: Deep love for nation binding us all

PUTRAJAYA: The deep love for Malaysia is one of the powerful forces binding the people together, says Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

In kicking off the National Month celebration, he said this deep sense of love for the nation must be nurtured well.

“I believe the deep sense of love for the country among the people will bind us all,” he said at the launch, which was held at Dataran Perdana yesterday.

The event saw the full attendance of Cabinet Ministers, Chief Secretary to the Government Datuk Seri Mohd Zuki Ali, Chief of Armed Forces Jen Tan Sri Affendi Buang and Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador.

The theme for this year’s National Month celebration, “Malaysia Prihatin”, is aimed at instilling patriotism, unity and love for the country.

“Malaysia Prihatin” is also the government’s motto in its efforts to revive the economy and improve the lives of its people while continuing the fight to end the Covid-19 pandemic.

Muhyiddin observed that the “Malaysia Prihatin” spirit of caring for one another during challenging times was practised by Malaysians from all walks of life.

“This is evident when people come forward to extend help and support in times of need, regardless of race, religion or political belief.

“This is a good sign to prove that Malaysians are together during good and difficult times,” he said.

In conjunction with the celebration, which will be until Malaysia Day on Sept 16, the Prime Minister called on the people to fly the Jalur Gemilang at homes, office buildings, business premises and vehicles in a show of love for Malaysia.

“We should fly the Jalur Gemilang all year round without having to wait for the National Month celebration.

“The Jalur Gemilang is the symbol of sovereignty and independence of our nation, not merely a piece of cloth that defines our constitution,” he said.

At the event, the National Day and Hari Malaysia celebration’s theme song – Malaysia Prihatin – was played for the first time.

The song was composed by Datuk Mokhzani Ismail while the lyrics is by El Sol Akhmad.
