The story of Mohsin, Michael, and friendship after May 13

M Fakhrull Halim  |  Published:  |  Modified:

When school reopened in the aftermath of May 13, 1969, Malay, and Chinese students reunited against the backdrop of national unease.

Classmates Mohsin Abdullah and Michael Chang both lived in Kampung Baru, where the riot broke out.

Both witnessed and experienced harrowing incidents during the days of mayhem, but despite the atmosphere of prejudice outside, their experiences and the brief separation during the days of curfew did not impact their friendship, which remains strong to this day.
