On 27th October, 2013, an initiative was launched by some concerned Malaysians, comprising those of various races and faiths, to form a society with the aim of fostering a sense of brotherhood amongst Malaysians and to heighten the humanity that is in each of us, without regard to differences of race or faith.
Styling themselves as ‘Harmony Malaysia’, members adopted a Constitution that was approved at their Inaugural General Meeting held in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, and an Executive Council duly elected thereat.
Attendees at the meeting:
The logo adopted for the society is:
Its Constitution states that the society shall be a non-profit making, non-governmental and politically independent association which is non-denominational, humanitarian and shall be a charitable body dedicated to the promotion and preservation of harmony amongst all people in Malaysia, citizens and residents, irrespective of race, ethnicity, religion and background.
The group shall in due course be applying to the Registrar of Societies for registration. It shall be a national body with branches set up in all the States after its registration.
Amongst the objectives stipulated in its Constitution are:
The Society shall concentrate on the promotion and development of good, respectful and healthy relations between all people and a harmonious environment of friendship and relationship between people and communities of diverse ethnicities, creeds and faiths. The objectives of the Society are as follows:
- . 5.1 To promote and develop goodwill, peaceful and harmonious living amongst all people and respect for each other’s culture and faith;
5.2 To promote the spirit of charity, humanitarianism and volunteerism amongst all members of society;
5.3 To educate and make all people more aware and more understanding of the similarities and differences in the cultures, traditions, beliefs and practices of the various communities in Malaysia;
5.4 To protect and defend the rights of all people to truth, justice and peace;
5.5 To collaborate with other bodies, agencies and parties holding similar objectives or pursuing similar interests.
Membership to the Society shall be open to all Malaysian citizens who have attained eighteen (18) years of age and who subscribe to the objectives of the Society.
Members have so far been recruited from Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Perak, Penang, Johore, Kelantan, Negeri Sembilan, Malacca and Sabah.
Those amongst you who share the same objectives and may wish to know more or sign up as members can contact the organisation at email@example.com

anom 3:56:00 AM there will always be people who think different from us - some do so with grace and some without. We know where anon 3:13:00PM stands. These people are more to be pitied than anything else.ReplyDelete
From one anonymous to another, we live in a somewhat democratic country where you are told what to think, do and pray but for me, calling these people, old buggers, is indeed is a very enduring thing. Well, let me put it in another way, the 25 odd buggers if you add up their ages together that figure would exceed 2000 taking you to the time of Christ.It is a bugger of a figure.ReplyDelete
Had I labelled Pensioners Party goers, I could imagine what the reaction would be.
But like you I was looking towards a change in government] it didn't happen so I was just as disappointed as you were.
Do you really think these buggers would make a dent in the next election ?
anon 12:06:00 let me tell you my story. About three years ago I sent a comment to one of my classmates blog - on what and about what I cannot remember with clarity. But I remember that two other bloggers took the trouble to tell me that they liked what they read - those two Lita and Pat - are responsible for me starting this blog steadyaku47. I now have over 2.6 million clicks and done over 4000 postings.ReplyDelete
And my answer to your question "Do you really think these buggers would make a dent in the next election ?"...Yes Sir it would!
Singa Terhormat? The name is a giveaway. Most NGOs and associations are started to serve the ego of its principals. They will not work with existing ones. This is true even arts and rational endeavours such as environmentalism and social welfare.ReplyDelete
