58th Independence A New History

Its a new history for Merdeka Day celebration. The presence of thousands of patriotic Malaysians who want to save Malaysia congregate around Dataran Merdeka and just at midnight sang the Negaraku. For the first time in history to date, I think about as many as about 100,000 Malaysians sang the national anthem at the same time. Do we have these many Malaysians singing the Negara Ku at the same time?

It should have been recorded in Malaysia Guiness Book of Record.

2015 Independence Day celebrations is also a history when citizens are banned from entering the sacred Dataran Merdeka to celebrate the annual historical event. Who does Malaysia belong to?
