" The Rukun Negara was proclaimed as the nation’s philosophy by the 4th Yang Di PertuanAgong (King) on the 31st August 1970, Malaysia’s Independence Day. It was anattempt to re-affirm and re-assert the nation’s fundamental aspirations and guiding principles following the ethnic riots of May 1969.
The Rukun Negara was formulated by a body known as the National Consultative Council comprising about 60 members made up of Federal Ministers, Opposition Leaders, religious and community representatives, academics, professionals, business people and trade unionists. The multi-ethnic NCC was chaired by the then Deputy Prime Minister, Tun Abdul Razak Hussein who later became the Prime Minister."
