Dr Kua Kia Soong Reflects on Malaysia’s Past, Present and Future

On the 31st of August, Malaysia celebrates its 66th year of Independence. We have come a long way as a nation since 1957 – we have modernised, urbanised and even expanded human rights. However, questions still remain on what it means to be Malaysian, especially given how incredibly polarised we are across racial and religious lines. 

We reflect on the nation’s past, present and future, with Dr Kua Kia Soong, human rights activist, former Suaram director, and former DAP MP.
