This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Rukun Negara which was proclaimed on 31 August 1970 during the 13th Independence Day celebration.
50 years have gone by since the Rukun Negara was drawn up by the government and proclaimed by the fourth Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Ismail Nasiruddin Shah Ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Zainal Abidin on Aug 31, 1970.
Formulated after the racial riots of May 13, 1969, Rukun Negara was aimed at forging racial unity and harmony among the nation’s multiracial communities. Unfortunately, with the passage of time and the significance of the five pillars largely forgotten, the true spirit of Rukun Negara is probably lost on the people, particularly the younger generation.
