THE Perak Government will have a celebration to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Melaka Sultanate in the state.

State education committee chairman Dr Abdul Aziz Bari said the event would be held in 2023 to highlight the historical ties between Perak and Melaka.

He said the idea was raised during the state assembly sitting last year.

“We need to conduct extensive research on the history of Melaka Rulers in Perak, which includes getting help from local and international historians and experts as well as obtain funding and sponsorships for the event,” he said after opening the Malaysia History Association Perak Chapter symposium and general meeting at the IPG Ipoh Campus in Hulu Kinta.

Abdul Aziz urged relevant parties such as history clubs and associations as well as universities and agencies to be involved in the event preparations. — ILI AQILAH
