Comment:(TheStar) Preserve Sg Buloh leprosarium

I READ with dismay that yet another place of heritage value has to give way to development.

I am talking about the Sungai Buloh Leprosy Centre.

If so much sentiments and consideration can be given to Universiti Malaya as a heritage site being one of the oldest institutes of higher learning, I see no reason not to give the same reverence to Sungai Buloh. It has equal importance in its rich history as a previous asylum for the leprous community and also for its contribution to medical research for leprosy and its treatment.

Let's not be too hasty to erase bit by bit the living proof of our rich history and heritage.

What is removed and destroyed will be lost forever.

There will always be land to build institutions but there will never be the same Sungai Buloh if we allow development that will mar its natural settings.
