PETALING JAYA: The Sultan of Selangor has expressed anger and sadness over the vandalism carried out against the murals of the country’s leaders in Shah Alam.

Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah condemned the act in a Facebook post on Monday (July 20).

“The Sultan has decreed that the act of painting derogatory words on the mural pictures of the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong (Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah), the Prime Minister (Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin) and the Health director-general (Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah) along with a few other leaders, was an insolent (biadap) act.

“The Sultan is regretful and disappointed that such an act took place on an artwork in Selangor.

“What is more, the Sultan truly appreciates the work of local artists.

“The Sultan is of the view that the incident was not committed by a mentally unsound person or a mischievous child but that it is based on hateful political motives, ” said the post.

The Ruler expressed hope that the culprit will be caught and brought to justice immediately.
