PETALING JAYA: About 30 Indonesian students pelted the Malaysian Embassy in Jakarta with rotten eggs and attempted to raise an Indonesian flag at the gate on Tuesday.
The attack, believed spurred by allegations that the Malaysian national anthem Negara Ku had been copied from the Indonesian song Terang Bulan, came a day after Malaysia celebrated its 52nd National Day.
The Indonesian flag was raised from the embassy gate after a tug-of-war between police and students.
The attack was also reportedly triggered by allegations that a Balinese dance had been used to promote a television show about Malaysia, although it was revealed that no Malaysian government agency had a role in the advertisement.
Do we really love to copycat?
Anyways, I heard that Terang Bulan has been banned from Malaysia since Negara Ku became our National Anthem from my music teacher (few years back).
