Historian Prof. Ramlah Adam said that Sang Saka was the flag of the Kesatuan Melayu Muda (KMM) or Young Malays Union whose agenda was to join Malaysia and Republic Indonesia and turn Malaysia into a republic nation just like Indonesia.
After understanding the real facts, I feel even more angry; especially when PR leaders lied and claimed that Sang Saka Malaya was waved to honour the independence fighters and that the flag was a historical flag and a symbol of the fights for our independence.
Our real independence fighters are the fighters who supported the sultans as our rulers and not those who wanted to turn Malaysia into a republic nation!
So do the people who claim that Sang Saka Malaya is a symbol of the fights for our independence share the same dream with those people who tried to turn Malaysia into a republic nation?
