Muzammil said this in his Independence Day message in a booklet, in conjunction with the 69th Sri Lankan Independence Day celebration organised by the Sri Lankan High Commission in Malaysia.
The celebration at the high commission saw the gathering of some 200 people, both locals and Sri Lankans residing in Malaysia. The event was also attended by Education Deputy Minister Senator Chong Sin Woon.

He said Sri Lanka was among the countries in the world which promoted and practised democratic traditions within its institutions.
“Today, we have independent judiciary and free media and Sri Lanka can be proud of its high literacy rate of over 93 per cent and life expectancy of above 75 years, which is on par with developed nations,” he said. (Colombo Gazette)
