Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah criticizesOver commercialization is destroying nature tourism, as expressed by the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah recently. The beauty of bioluminescent phytoplankton at the state park in Pulau Sembilan is under major threat as explained by the sultan. Various irresponsible operators who don’t follow the rules and restrictions are the main culprits behind.


Consequently, the state government has come to the terms of closing the island to the visitors temporarily before imposing stricter rules to safeguard the ecosystem and biodiversity of the place.


To quote the sultan, ‘The same goes for the Ubudiah mosque in Kuala Kangsar, which is listed as among the top five most beautiful and fabulous mosques in the world. Its authenticity must be protected as part of heritage. The mosque must not be altered in the name of expansion that would destroy its beauty.”


He also clarified that the development should be balanced between the needs of the humans and the environment. To quote Sultan Nazrin, ‘Schools are the best institutions to instill awareness to cherish, and conserve the environment.’ Daily an average solid waste of 33,000 tonnes is disposed everyday with an annual accumulation of 12,000,000 tonne. To quote him, ‘The state government must have serious plans to improve recycling activities’.
