Negaraku, tanah tumpahnya darahku ...

“Negaraku, tanah tumpahnya darahku …”, National Anthem, song we sang with respect and loyalty during our school days every morning. Literally, that would mean “My country, the place where I was born …” that place, is Malaysia. It is a fact that I, along with millions of other, current and previous generation, was born here in Malaysia as a Malaysian.

However, our education system must have taught us the wrong principles. For I never realize that we, those born and bred here, are immigrants, by being granted citizenships.

“It is not appropriate for the other races to demand equal rights and privileges after they had already acquired their citizenships,”

Although, that matters not. For, I would still teach my children to sing the National Anthem with pride.
