Google Doodle observes Hari Merdeka, otherwise called Malaysia’s Independence Day, Hari Kebangsaan or “National Day”, in honor of 63 years of Malaysian autonomy on August 31, 2020.
Hari Merdeka, is the official independence day of Federation of Malaya. It honors the Malayan Declaration of Independence of 31 August 1957, and is characterized in Article 160 of the Constitution of Malaysia. The day is marked by official and unofficial ceremonies and observances.
The observation of 31 August as Malaysia’s national day is the reason for some contention, because of calls to organize the festival of Hari Malaysia (Malaysia Day) on 16 September. Hari Malaysia recognizes the formation of Malaysia in 1963, when North Borneo, Sarawak, and Singapore unified with the current states of Malaya to form Malaysia.
A few, particularly individuals from East Malaysia, contend that it is wrong to celebrate 31 August 1957 as Malaysia’s national day when Malaysia was just made in 1963. Supporters of Hari Merdeka contend that “the Federation” as characterized in Article 160 of the Constitution of Malaysia is the “Federation of Malaya” that was set up in 1957.

Ordinarily, there will be parades including a huge number of contingents yet due to Covid-19 there will be no parades this year. This is the new standard. The current purpose is for everyone to battle the coronavirus pandemic.
The purpose before Hari Merdeka was the battle to liberate our country from our subjugators. We are thankful for all the sacrifices made by our forefather. They additionally needed to fight with the communists and Indonesian encounter.
Marching towards the future, we should be joined together and be cooperating for a superior Malaysia. We should gain from the unity of the Muhajirin and Ansar during Prophet Muhammad’s time, so harmony and peace keep on being safeguarded and improved.
