Gov't scraps controversial Merdeka logo
9:18AM Jul 29, 2012
The government has decided to replace the 55th National Day celebrations logo with the standard 1Malaysia logo after a week of public outcry.
Announcing this in a post on micro-blogging site Twitter, Information, Communications and Culture Rais Yatim said this is to "quell misunderstanding".
"To quell some misunderstanding, we (will) only have 1Malaysia as (the) logo for Merdeka (and) Hari Malaysia," he said
The lyrics of the songs celebrates Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia, the way this country is runned until welfare payout is celebrated, is most unusual by world standards.
The back pedaling however, do not excuse tax payers and public at large for examining the current administration’s intention and performance , as it claims that it fulfills promises.
