A cenotaph is a tomb or a landmark that is raised in memory of a man or a gathering of individual whose remaining parts are somewhere else. This cenotaph was raised out of appreciation for the fallen saints of World War One (1914 to 1918), World War Two (1939 to 1945) and the Malayan Emergency (1948 to 1960). One can see the dates obviously on the cenotaph.
Amid the Second World War, Japan attacked Malaya, the old name for Malaysia. The Japanese started the Pacific War with the intrusion of Kota Bahru on the eastern side of the peninsular around a hour and a half before the assault on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. At that point, they attacked the island of Borneo, totally catching Sabah and Sarawak. Later, Singapore, which was then piece of Malaya, fell. In under two months, the whole nation was in Japanese hands, where an expected 100,000 individuals were killed.
Amid the occupation, guerrilla powers, for example, constrain 136 and the Malayan People’s Anti-Japanese Army battled the Japanese from the wildernesses. The Chinese were singled out for severe treatment because of the long hostility between the Japanese and the Chinese.
After the Second World War finished, another war started from 1948 to 1960 normally known as the Malayan Emergency. The war was battled between the Commonwealth military and the Malayan National Liberation armed force, which is the activist arm of the Malayan Communist Party. The Communist party battled against the pioneer British and called it the Anti British National Liberation War.
