No need to commemorate May 13 riots: PM

Malaysiakini
Prime Minister Najib Razak said today it was unnecessary to commemorate the racial riots of May 13.

“We should regard it as an event in the annals of history from which we can learn from … as a demarcation for us so that it will not recur,” he said.

Najib spoke to reporters after a video conference with members of the Malaysian community and students in six countries in conjunction with Aidiladha, at the prime minister’s official residence Seri Perdana in Putrajaya.

Also present at the session were Najib’s wife Rosmah Mansor and Higher Education Minister Mohamed Khaled Nordin.
