Sultan: CM, Exco & Assemblymen should work harder to develop the state

“Plan properly for the long term, get the right people to implement the plans and leave a legacy of development that benefit the people and the next generation,” said Sultan Sharafuddin, taken from an interview during his 69th birthday celebration yesterday.

He also expressed dismay and disappointment with the Chief Minister issue which lasted for months as a result of the Kajang Move plan.

He said that the issue was selfish and affected the smooth running of the state government administration and the people, in particular.

On racial harmony, he said fiery comments and irresponsible acts which turned believers of one religion against another must stop because extremism and hatred would not be tolerated in Selangor.

I have told the Islamic Religious Department that we have to respect that line.

For example, simply banning the Bible is wrong. And calls to burn the Bible are not right,” he said.

However, under state law, the Sultan said it was wrong for non-Muslims to use the word “Allah” in the Bible, as well as to print and distribute Bibles with the word “Allah” in Selangor.
