How many days more till it hit 31st ? I was inspired by Ophy's writings regarding the story of Malaysia's Independence Day, therefore i grabbed my Blog as quickly as i can. The inspiring work of ophy --> http://uitmdalnet.org/blog/?p=37#more-37
Now, this’d send controversies in the air :
But, i think the real hero of Independence was not Tunku Abdul Rahman, the Independence’s negotiations that had taken place in London was a staged one. Though undeniably, Tunku was influential in declaring it.
The real heroes are always the forgotten ones. The likes of Tok Janggut who was hanged and publicly displayed as a subject of contempt by the Brits, Dol Said, Rosli Dobi, Mat Salleh and a lot more that often goes unmentioned in our celebration of Merdeka.
These persons have selflessly fought for what they believe in, for whom they care and for the religion and country they were willing to die for.
