KUALA LUMPUR: As a young nation, it is important for Malaysia to strengthen unity to the extent that the people have become colour blind and no longer look at the ethnicity of their fellow citizens, said 1Malaysia Foundation trustee Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye.

He said every Malaysian must appreciate and celebrate Malaysia's diversity and help protect its uniqueness.

"As a person who had witnessed the country gaining its independence on Aug 31, 1957, and the formation of Malaysia on Sept 6, 1963, I realised that no one could destroy the country if the people remain united," he said in his Merdeka message today.

He said every Malaysian must celebrate the two important dates by appreciating the real meaning of independence and how important it was for the country and its people.
