The National Day celebration on 31 August will make a new history for Malaysians when processions and parades according to the new norm, will be broadcast on television for the first time.
Secretary of the Division (Management) of the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia (KKMM) Mohammad Diah Wahari said the event will be recorded in advance separately for each contingent identified to reduce public gatherings and ensure that the standard operating procedure (SOP) of the COVID-19 pandemic complied within.
“This year, the government will not hold any parade and parade event as before. This time we will hold the event at Dataran Pahlawan Putrajaya, with the departure of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah to check control Yours sincerely.
“Next, he will defile the duke watching a live broadcast by Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM will provide that),” he said after being a guest on the @Radio program on Bernama Radio entitled National Month 2020 ‘Malaysia Prihatin’ yesterday.
Detailing Malaysia Caring themed celebration, Mohammad Diah said RTM was responsible for editing the recording using combined reality technology comprising augmented reality and CGI 3D (Computer Generated Image) technology.
He invited the people to celebrate the 63rd Independence Day together by watching RTM broadcasts also feel the excitement despite not being able to witness the parade of uniformed contingents, security assets, and symbolic event performances live at the location.
“As Malaysians, let us together enliven the celebration with new norms no matter where we are regardless of age, race and religion. Appreciate the struggle of previous fighters to fight for national independence,” he said.
Mohammad Diah also invited the people of this country to fly the Jalur Gemilang at their respective homes, apart from participating in various nationalism programs organized by KKMM, Pertubuhan Berita Nasional (Bernama) and RTM as a patriotic sign to the country.
Commenting on the nationalism program, he said it will held at Merdeka @ Komuniti, Merdeka Poetry Competition, Click @ Merdeka 2020 photography competition, Rukun Negara Webinar, e-Treasure Hunt, ‘Thank You Hero’ Capsule and Kita Merdeka 1957 concert- 2020.
This celebration saw the heart-shaped logo become the choice after the last time it was used in 2016 with the Jalur Gemilang flag’s color as its background, which symbolizes the Malaysian government’s concern for the multi-racial community in this country.
National Day’s logo and theme introduced during the National Month Launching Ceremony and Kibar Jalur Gemilang by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin last July.
The theme of ‘Sayangi Malaysiaku: Malaysia Bersih’ should be appreciated because it carries its meaning – cleansing oneself from all ‘impurities,’ especially corruption and being a good human being with a distinguished personality. We must create a spirit and understand the true meaning of independence.
Understanding the blessings and spirit of independence needs to convey so that every society loves the country. Without the nationalist struggle, the government will not be independent and continue to be colonized and face various social problems. The post-independence generation children need to be continuously awakened and shaken in their thoughts so that they do not neglect and be comfortable with the prosperity they enjoy.
Finally, B-Union and all the company staff wishing all Malaysians a Happy 63rd National Day, let us fight together. Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka!
