Hannah: Don’t be influenced by racial slurs

Meanwhile at the Subang Jaya Municipal Council stadium complex, Subang Jaya assemblyperson Hannah Yeoh urged Malaysians not to be influenced by recent slurs made by certain quarters.

She said this during the launch of Subang Jaya Aidilfitri and Mid-Autumn Fetsival celebration recently, while adding that Malaysians from different races are living in harmony.

“The crowd attending this event tonight is a testament to that,” she said.

The festival was jointly organised by the Subang Jaya ADUN office, MPSJ and Subang Jaya Lion Club. Attendants were entertained with traditional dance of various races and a special appearance of singer Amirah Ali.
