MP SPEAKS | On this Hari Raya, let us resolve to protect and defend the constitution

Lim Kit Siang


MP SPEAKS | This year's Hari Raya Aidilfitri will be celebrated under unprecedented conditions where there is no “balik kampung”, the prime minister in quarantine and Malaysians learning to live with the Covid-19 virus through new norms like social distancing and movement controls.

The Covid-19 pandemic knows no distinctions, whether race, religion, colour or nationality.

All the great religions of the world are represented in the world’s top 20 countries in terms of the cumulative total of Covid-19 confirmed cases.

Malaysians are thankful that we have moved out of this category, as we were ranked l8 on March 18 when the MCO was imposed but we are now in the 56th position with 7,137 cases and 115 deaths.

The daily increase of Covid-19 infections have been in double-digit figures for the past 17 days, and I am looking forward to the day when there is no daily increase of Covid-19 cases...
