KUCHING: Former state minister Datuk Amar James Wong Kim Min, who played a key role in the formation of Malaysia, suggests that the history of how Malaysia was formed should be made a subject in school.
He urged Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin in his capacity as the Minister of Education to consider this.
He reasoned that its introduction as a subject was important because the

are that Malaysia was formed.
