Abstract

HOBART: This coming Monday (Sep 16) marks Malaysia Day, a public holiday that commemorates the formation of the Federation of Malaysia when the states of Malaya, Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore merged in 1963. Prior to this holiday being gazetted in 2010, the country celebrated its founding day on Aug 31, the date the Federation of Malaya gained independence from British colonial rule. For the past decade, the rise of state nationalism in Sabah and Sarawak, and deep historical grievances related to the 1963 Malaysian Agreement (MA63) have become the central political issue in East Malaysia.
