Hari Raya 2012 message by Lim Kit Siang on Saturday, 18th August 2012:
Hari Raya Aidilfitri 2012 Message: Rendezvous with greatness
I wish all Muslims in Malaysia Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
On this auspicious occasion, non-Muslims join their Muslim compatriots in Malaysia to make this important Islamic calender a national celebration.
With the 55th Merdeka Day/49th Malaysia Day around the corner, this is a fit occasion for all Malaysians regardless of race, religion, region, class, age or sex to reaffirm our common national identity and destiny to build a nation strongly founded on the principles of democracy, justice, soliidarity, integrity and good governance.
Malaysians are bound together to a common future - either all Malaysians regardless of race, religion, region, class, age or sex unite to forge a progreesive and prosperous future for all Malaysians, or we will all suffer from man-made weaknesses and divisions which will prevent the country from fully exploiting her human and natural resources.
Let all patriotic Malaysians answer the call of the times - to work to achieve Malaysia's rendezvous with greatness as a people and nation.
*Lim Kit Siang, DAP Parliamentary Leader & MP for Ipoh Timor
