The history of Malaya's emergence as a sovereign independent nation after centuries of colonial domination, is a story with such a wealth of perspectives, that it can be told and retold in many ways. So believes Emeritus Professor Datuk Dr Hj Shad Saleem Faruqi, Holder of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Chair at the University of Malaya, our guest on today’s episode of Law & Behold. He joins us to discuss the history of the formation of our Constitution, some of the alterations that have been made to the document since 1957, and why constitutional literacy is a must, for every Malaysian. Law & Behold is a monthly series which aims to arm Malaysians with constitutional literacy, and is done in collaboration with The Malaysian Bar, the University of Malaya's Faculty of Law, and the Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights (MCCHR).
