Time had really flown and now it is 40 years after that fateful day of 13 May 1969. Many of our present leaders were not even born yet. The lesson has to be learnt by all true Malaysians if they really love the country. Everyone should forget the bad and painful memories of that incident and move on. All Malaysians should be duly accorded equality, fairness and justice by whichever government is in power of the day if it is to fulfil a united, peaceful and prosperous dream irrespective of race, culture and religion.

The forum is indeed a remarkable way to brainstorm the 1Malaysia project for a just and equal Malaysia for all!
