Bangun launched for Malay community in Sri Lanka

The Malay community in Sri Lanka launched Bangun (Wake up) movement at the All Ceylon YMMA Conference Auditorium, Colombo recently under the patronage of Attorney at Law T. K. Azoor.

The Bangun aims to send Malay representatives to Parliament.

T.K. Azoor said Malay people have been here over 350 years and contributing in many ways to develop the country. The late Dr. T.B. Jayah was in the State Council and helped extensively get the independence for the country.

The late Prime Minister, S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike acknowledged his service. For the last 25 years, however, Parliament has been without a Malay parliamentarian, he said.

Representatives from over 26 Malay organizations participated in the meeting and unanimously elected T.K. Azoor as the new movement’s President.
