Program Melayu Bangkit

Program Melayu Bangkit will be held 14 June'10. This program is organized by the Gerakan Kebangkitan Rakyat (Gertak), previously postponed on safety aspects, will be held on June 14.

Chairman of the threat, Razali Idris said the program content was not changed from the original plan, which discusses issues involving Malays, including the New Economic Policy (NEP), Vision 2020 and planning to promote unity of the Malays in particular.

Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad will deliver a keynote address at the event, which will be held at the State Stadium and is expected to attract over 20,000 participants, including from outside Terengganu.

Through this program, he hopes the relationship among the Malays, who started the conflict in the political cold, will be re-united for the stability of the country.

It may also be some misunderstanding with the abbreviations used in Gertak, which is actually taken from the Terengganu dialect which means a bridge, aimed at linking the Malays despite different political ideologies.

He will apply for permits from the authorities tomorrow. He said that participation is open to the Malays but Gertak does not have any problem if the non-Malays to participate in the program, by sending a letter to the organizers in advance.
