The paper demonstrates how cultural tensions led to almost all of the uprisings in Malaysia throughout history. The paper goes on to show that settling these cultural differences has led to the creation of a collaborative nation-state, one interested in promoting diversity. The paper discusses how today, non-Malay, Malay, Chinese and Islamic symbols are all displayed in public places since the Malay people have accepted the Chinese culture and other cultures existing within Malaysia.
