Esok, 31 Ogos 2019 kita rakyat Malaysia akan menyambut ulang tahun kemerdekaan negara yang ke-62.

Seperti mana sambutan-sambutan yang lalu pasti ramai akan melontarkan kata-kata penuh semangat, partriotik dan membawa mesej perpaduan dinantikan oleh kita semua terutama daripada tokoh-tokoh terkenal negara.

Dan pada hari ini, legenda badminton dan wira negara Datuk Lee Chong Wei telah memuat naik sebuah posting yang cukup memberikan semangat dan membawa mesej perpaduan yang hebat.

Umum mengetahu bahawa sejak kebelakangan ini negara kita dilanda oleh pelbagai kontroversi serta peristiwa yang sedikit sebanyak telah mencalar ikatan perpaduan pelbagai bangsa di negara kita.

Kata-kata cacian, maki hamun serta mesej perkauman di laman media sosial seakan menjadi barah yang perlu kita berikan perhatian agar generasi akan datang tidak bergelumang dengan kejahilan seperti ini.

Itulah yang dinyatakan oleh Datuk Lee Chong Wei.

MASKULIN tertarik dengan mesej yang dibawa oleh beliau yang megimbau ketika dia berdepabn Lin Dan di perlawanan akhir kejohanan badminton Terbuka Malaysia 2006.

“Bermain melawan antara pemain paling berbakat dan handal di dunia dan ketinggalan 13-20, pada masa itu saya fikir saya akan kalah. Penat dan kecewa. Namun bila melihat kepada peminat di stadium, suara mereka tak pernah padam.

“Saya saksikan seorang kanak-kanak perempuan menadah kedua belah tangannya dengan memejamkan mata sambil berdoa. Di satu sisi lagi, seorang gadis India menangis dan di ceruk berbeza pula anak lelaki kawan saya menjerit nama saya memberikan semangat.”

Posting yang dimuat naik tersebut telah mendapat komen yang cukup positif daripada pengguna Facebook berbilang bangsa. Rata-rata mengucapkan terima kasih kepada Datuk Lee Chong Wei kerana berkongsi mesej yang cukup bermakna sempena sambutan Hari Kemerdekaan dan Hari Malaysia yang bakal tiba.

Hi all, Salam sejahtera semua.

Recently I have not frequented the social media as often as I used to. Sebab sakit hati I baca content that pops up. Friends and fans shooting vulgarities at each other, all due to some very petty issues. It is not the Malaysia I fought for.

When I met Lin Dan during the 2006 Malaysian Open final, I thought I would lose when I trailed at 13-20. It was impossible. Against the most talented man with a 7 point match point deficit, I was already thinking about what to eat for dinner.

I was tired and dejected. I looked up to the crowd. Their vociferous support never wavered. Then I saw a Malay girl, maybe around 8ish years old putting both hands together with her eyes closed. She was praying for me.

The other side of the stadium I saw an Indian gal, crying. I dunno if she crying for me, but I assumed she was.

Then another corner, my friend’s Son; a ten year old Chinese boy was shouting my name so loud that the umpire had to gaze that corner hinting him to lower down his voice.

I knew I couldn’t give up. The whole Malaysia prayed for me to win. A Malaysia consisting of kawan, ah ne, and Heng Dai. A colourful Malaysia. A Malaysia where I eat Roti Canai for breakfast, Nasi Lemak for lunch and Char Koey Tiao for dinner.

We Malaysians are better than these, my friends.

5 years ago, there was a hilarious report from a someone who said Malaysian Chinese would support Lin Dan it was a Lin Dan- Misbun fight. First and foremost, who are u to say these when faith and loyalty shouldn’t be your forte . Second of all, as a Malaysian who know these two players, of course I support Misbun. Misbun is my countryman, Lin Dan is not. Misbun won, my country happy, everyone happy, maybe got cuti. If Lin Dan won, ape gua dapat?

We Malaysians lepak sekali, mamak sekali, look after one another tak kira kaum. We cheer for our country Malaysia. Are we going to stop all these because of one random voice from the building?

Don’t let petty issues like Dong Zong Nor Khat tear us apart,
Don’t let minor people spreading racial hate beat us,
Don’t let insentive people pull our nose out of our sanity,
Don’t let the anasir jahat (from the Chinese , Indians and Malays) defeat our country, our people.

Malaysians are much much bigger than these. Tunjukkan kita jauh lagi teguh dari semua nonsense ini. Spread love not hate!

I want my sons and grandchildren to have their Malay and Indian friends. I want them to feel safe in Malaysia. I want them to fight for the flag, like how I did for u guys in the last decade.

When Malaysia won the Thomas Cup in 1992, Punch Gunalan was the team manager, Razif was the Captain, Rashid was the most talented, Kok Keong was the fighter and Beng Kiang delivered the winning smash. It was a beautiful Malaysia, multiracial. Don’t kill it .

Happy birthday soon, Tanah tumpahnya darah ku. Kesetiaan kepada Raja dan Negara.
