Malaysians have to stay true to the foundations that built this country.
In his National Day message last night, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said with the rise of digitalisation, it has become easier for trolls to spread irresponsible messages.

P. Waytha Moorthy said the country would be more peaceful if those fanning racial and religious sentiments cannot be heard.
