Although Malaysian come from diverse backgrounds,
there is a unique unity in its diversity. Indeed, the ethnic Malays,
Chinese, Indians as well as the numerous indigenous people form a
fascinating potpourri of a multi-cultural and multi-racial
population who greatly value peace and prosperity.
Although each race maintains its individuality in
terms of traditions and community structures, the overall cultural
mosaic is well integrated to create a contemporary Malaysia, rich in
its diverse heritage.
An urban neighborhood, consisting of various
communities living together harmoniously, exchanging and sharing,
among other things, knowledge, with one another, is hardly an
uncommon sight. Men, women and children of different races often get
together for conversation, companionship and friendly competitive
sports. Amidst all of this is, the respect and tolerance each race
has for the others' racial and religious practices.
One of the most interesting form of cultural and
racial interaction among Malaysians is the 'open house' policy
during religious festivals. All communities will 'open their doors'
to their friends and neighbors of different ethic backgrounds,
effectively breaking down cultural and racial barriers, thus
cultivating greater understanding amongst all races.
The tradition of tolerance practiced by the people
of Malaysia has resulted in great progress for the country. Malaysia
is truly a fine example of unity.
