Malaysia celebrates 57th Merdeka Day in subdued fashion

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia marked its 57th Merdeka Day in subdued fashion as more than 100,000 people from all walks of life gathered at Dataran Merdeka here on Sunday.
Themed "Malaysia, Where Love Grows", the parade started as soon as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Hajah Haminah arrived at 8am.
Their Majesties were welcomed by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.
The King then saluted before the Negaraku was played by the Royal Malay Regiment's main band.
The Yang di-Pertuan Agong inspected a-guard-of-honour mounted by 103 member of the regiment, which was followed by three shouts of "Daulat Tuanku(Long Live the King)" and hoisting of the national flag accompanied by the singing of Negaraku and later, the firing of a 14-gun salute.
Malaysians at the iconic Dataran Merdeka also observed a moment of silence in prayers for the country's patriots and fallen soldiers who had fought for the country's independence.
Also present were Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Cabinet Ministers, and foreign leaders as well as other dignitaries. -Star
