Johor Bahru hosted the #SaySomethingNice campaign which is now running its second year in its efforts to foster unity among Malaysians.
Originally began in Kuala Lumpur in 2011 the campaign seeks to use the 17-day time segment between 31 August until 16 September as a time of truce and showcase the positives of Malaysia to everyone.
Y.Bhg Dato’Benjamin Hj Hasbie, Federal Commisioner, Iskandar Regional Development Authority ( IRDA) officially launched the campaign at JBPac Blackbox, Danga City Mall on the 2 September, 2014.
” We supported the organizers of Johor Bahru Campaign not only for its cause to promote unity but also for its simplicity. To participate one only needs to say or do something nice. It enables ordinary Malaysians to take actions and do positive things that will lead to unity, using whatever strengths, and talents that we have.” He said in his speech.
He added “ I strongly believe that if we are persistent enough to continue doing this on a yearly basis, the idea of making the time period between Hari Merdeka and Hari Malaysia as days of positive truce and days to showcase the best of Malaysia in the longer run will become 17 days of celebrating unity.” He added.
Mohd Hafidz who is a representative of the organizers Zubedy Bhd, said that the campaign has big dreams which require a longer term to achieve its objective of unity which all Malaysians would cherish.
