CM: The Young Should Emulate Hang Tuah

MELAKA, Sept 24 (Bernama) -- Youths should emulate the legendary Malay warrior Hang Tuah, who had a superior character and was loyal to king and country, Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said.

He said that Hang Tuah was indomitable in defending the Melaka Sultanate from external attacks.

"His leadership qualities were pronounced because his knowledge covered religion and the art of silat," Mohd Ali said when opening the Hang Tuah Festival at the Malay Melaka Sultanate Palace Museum at Bandar Hilir here last night.

Also present were Information, Communications and Culture Deputy Minister Datuk Maglin Dennis D'Cruz and Melaka State Assembly Speaker Datuk Othman Muhamad.

Mohd Ali said Hang Tuah used his mastery of several languages to help boost relations between Melaka and other states and territories.
