KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 27, 2015:

The Communications and Multimedia Minister could not “be more wrong” when he asserted Malaysians have lost their spirit of nationalism, Lim Kit Siang said.

The DAP supremo, in a statement, argued the upcoming Bersih 4 rally, which is poised to be bigger than its previous editions, was in fact the highest expression of loyalty, nationalism and patriotism for Malaysians of various backgrounds.

Lim went on to claim Bersih 4 was an integral and important part of Merdeka celebrations.

“The Bersih 4 rallies, which should turn Kuala Lumpur, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu into seas of yellow, must be embraced as high-points in this year’s Merdeka celebrations.”

The Gelang Patah lawmaker said this in response to  Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak’s blog post yesterday about Merdeka, nationalism and political differences.

Salleh had written that this year, the impression given was that there was going to be two Merdeka celebrations, one of which was for those who opposed the government.

The former Sabah Chief Minister wondered if some Malaysians could avoid using Merdeka celebrations as a platform for politics.

Malaysians, he added, should be marching together regardless of race, religion and political leanings.
