Tunku Abdul Rahman
(1903 - 1990)
“We are all Malaysians. This is the bond that unites us. Let us always remember that unity is our fundamental strength as a people and as a nation.” – Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj (1903 – 1990)
PUTRA — Centre for Social Studies aims to champion a rakyat-based nation-building effort through research, data analytics and grassroots campaigns.
Inspired by the message conveyed by the Bapa Kemerdekaan Malaysia, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj that the founding principle of Malaysia is to serve Malaysians regardless of their races, religions and social classes:
At PUTRA, we research social issues that affect the rakyat in their daily lives.
At PUTRA, we seek to answer the questions of social mobility in the Malaysian society.
Through these two main pillars, PUTRA pioneers a new way of thinking — that Malaysians should see each other as Malaysians and serve the nation as Malaysians.
