Anas Zubedy launches book on unity by Song Boon Mun - The SUN Daily
SUBANG JAYA: A group of students joined Anas Zubedy at the launch of his newest unity themed book to introduce and promote the cultures of the nation's various races here today.
Anas, the managing director of Zubedy (M) Sdn Bhd, was at Sri Kuala Lumpur International School for the event with popular singer Zainalabidin.
"As parents and adults, what we do and say is imitated and transferred to our children. Sometimes, we, without even realising or having the slightest intent to be malicious, say things about other races that may not be in good light.
"This book is for parents and their children as we strongly feel that education starts at home. In this book, parents and their children can write their 'nice list' about other races," he told reporters.
The book, titled Pelbagai Warna, Satu Bangsa, is the Bahasa Malaysia version of his English book, Many Colors, One Race, which was published in 2013.
Like the English version, the book is a collection of stories of different races in Malaysia namely the Malays, Chinese, Indians, Eurasians, Ibans, Kadazans and Orang Asli.
Zainalabidin said that the concept behind the book is a commendable effort in bringing Malaysians together and hoped to see more such efforts.
"We are coming up with a new song to recognise the ethnics in Malaysia as music is a platform to create unity between all races. The released date has yet to be confirmed," he added.
On Aug 25, Anas will launch a "Say Something Nice" programme at Inti College, Subang Jaya.
