The 1Malaysia slogan and greeting will soon be a thing of the past, according to Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad
A report by Malaysiakini seemed to confirm the change, as the news portal cited a leaked document to the staff at the Domestic Trade, Co-operatives, and Consumerism Ministry (KPDNKK) revealing Tun Dr Mahathir's instruction to cease the use of the slogan
According to Malaysiakini, the document details the contents of a meeting between Mahathir and the secretaries-general of all ministries on Monday, 14 May.
KPDNKK officials and an unnamed secretary-general of another ministry confirmed the contents of the message to be true.

The practice of greeting "Salam 1Malaysia", "Salam Negaraku", and "Salam Negaraku Malaysia" should also be discontinued. Moving on, greetings should either be "Assalamualakum" or "Salam Sejahtera".
Staff should stop using the 1Malaysia and Negaraku pin as well, Malaysiakini reported.
