Commemorating the 120th Birth Anniversary of Tunku Abdul Rahman

The 8th of February 2023 marks the 120th anniversary of the birth of Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-haj, our first Prime Minister, and Malaya and Malaysia illustrious founding father. Tunku left footprints in the sands of time that, if we were to follow, may help us restore our past reputation as an exemplary society in which diverse races, religions and regions can live together in peace, harmony and prosperity. To reminisce about Tunku's remarkable life and enduring legacy, we speak to Emeritus Professor Datuk Dr Hj Shad Saleem Faruqi (Holder of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Chair, University of Malaya, Trustee, Yayasan Tunku Abdul Rahman) and Johan Rozali-Wathooth (Trustee, Yayasan Tunku Abdul Rahman).
