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?

You are indeed correct about the importance of respect for the real freedom fighters and not being rude to our own national flag or ‘Jalur Gemilang’. I hope your explanation about the meaning contained in ‘Jalur Gemilang’ enlighten them all to never look down on us and the majority of people that support a democratic system and ‘Raja Berpelembagaan’. 🙂
Many would thinking the concept of a republic nation is more democratic than constitutional monarchy but our people especially the Malays are still dependent on a King or Sultan as a head of state and make Islam as the official religion in this country. The King and Sultan also are derived from the Malays race and as a symbol of sovereignty of Malaysia.
It’s very unfortunate because our own race (malays) want to crumbled the institution of ‘Raja Berpelembagaan’ for sake of one man who wants to be a Prime Minister and willing to conspired with DAP leader who’s also want to transformed Malaysia into a republic nation. 😦
May God keep us away from those who intend to divide our beloved country. Help us so that our country remains safe and peaceful as well as successful in the future. Amin.
Some people only want freedom and think that freedom is cool. And I am very sad that some Malays think that way too. I met Uncle Ustaz Uthman El-Muhammady and he told me that the hadith says that we must take care of country, love our country and protect our country. I understand how important is our King and Sultans to our country especially to protect Islam as the religion of Malaysia. I am very sad to see the Malays who do not understand history and are not proud of Tanah Melayu. They are not proud of being a Malay and they think that turning Malaysia into a republic is a cool idea. They do not care if we do not have Muslim leaders any more. Yes, may Allah help us and that our country remains safe and peaceful as well as successful. May Allah protect us always. Amin.
