Negaraku – Let’s proclaim our love for Malaysia

Let’s fight violence with peace.

Let’s fight hatred with love.

If some senior police officers have so much contempt for our national anthem, we must be patient to educate them like a patient kindergarten teacher would do with the mischievous kid.

Let us sing national anthem every time we feel like declare our constitutional right to gather with more than three persons without asking for police permit.

Let us carry our camera everywhere and see how many times the police can beat citizens up for singing the national anthem and then lie to the public.

Let us sing it aloud:

Negaraku
Tanah tumpah-Nya darahku*
Rakyat hidup, bersatu dan maju
Rahmat bahagia, Tuhan kurniakan
Raja kita selamat bertakhta
Rahmat bahagia, Tuhan kurniakan
Raja kita selamat bertakhta

*No, Khalid Abu Bakar, that’s not the cue for your men to beat us up!

(Peaceful Malaysians withstanding police violence. Remember November 25!)

Let the police get the message loud and clear:

Malaysia is blessed by God with happiness, and our King shall reign in peace.

Rahmat bahagia, Tuhan kurniakan
Raja kita selamat bertakhta

(from flikr)

(Both by Yasmin Ahmad)

If the police who violate our constitutional freedom is so afraid of listening to the Negaraku, we should in fact make the Negaraku the symbol of national liberation, the symbol of a truly free and peaceful Malaysia, free from violence and corruption.

Will anyone in the blogsphere come out with some catchy banner and video clip to spread the message “Cintailah Negaraku, Tolak Keganasan Polis!” or some other better expression?
