Published By : LLG Cultural Development Centre

Estimated Year : 2010
Media Type : Book
Source : LLG Cultural Development Centre
Remark :

This is the first book in the English-language on a man who has been beatified as the "Soul of the Malaysian Chinese" since his passing in 1985. No other Malaysian Chinese has been accorded that honour. No other Malaysian Chinese has been given the privilege of lying-in-state at the Chinese Assembly Hall in Kuala Lumpur. At his funeral, the procession was the largest the capital had ever witnessed for any Malaysian Chinese.

His name is Lim Lian Geok and every year during the anniversary of his passing in December, leaders of political parties, associations and school children go to pay their respects at this great man's mausoleum at the Hokkien Cemtery in Kuala Lumpur.

He was the spokesperson for the Malayan Chinese community throughout the Independence struggle and he took part in the "Malacca Talks" with the Tunku over the Constitutional issues in 1955. He was even asked to write Hari Raya messages in the Jawi scripted Utusan Melayu in the Fifties.
