After touring many countries of the world, this time we decided to visit Malaysia, a Muslim country in Southeast Asia. In a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural society, a “national cultural policy” based on local culture was formulated in 1971, which reflects Islamic culture. Although there is a federal constitutional, optional monarchy, there is a British-style parliamentary system, with the king as head of state and the prime minister as head of government. The country’s economy develops rapidly and is based on a relatively open state policy. Is. The official religion is Islam.
Although Malaysia gained independence from the United Kingdom ten years after Pakistan’s independence, today it is one of the strongest emerging economies in the world. The biggest reason for this is that the country’s leadership is sincere and free from corruption. After independence from Britain, the father of Malaysia and the country’s first prime minister, Tenko Abdul Rehman, set the country on the path to development from the very beginning with his vision. Later, other leaders, especially Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, played an important role in the development of the country with sincere dedication and sincerity, which is why today it is called the “Asian Tiger”, which is common in world politics and Muslim. Is playing a particularly important role in protecting the world’s interests.
We started our journey from Pakistan via Kuala Lumpur via Bangkok. The two-hour flight from Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur was fascinating. Flying over the vast expanse of the sky over the Gulf of Thailand, when the plane enters the Malaysian mainland, the lush palm forests begin below. Looking at the palm trees swaying around the runway, it feels as if the land of the airport and the runway have been cleared of these forests. This long line of trees runs along the main road to the city. Kuala Lumpur Airport, located at a distance of about 28 km from the main city, is one of the busiest airports. According to a conservative estimate, about 60 million passengers pass through here every year. After a two-hour journey, when we arrived at Kuala Lumpur Airport, the immigration officer stared at us and flipped through the passport for a long time. He held our hands. We were outraged by his behavior, but were silenced by the thought that, in fact, a significant number of manpower had been diverted from Pakistan to Malaysia in recent times. Due to this many problems are arising, in which most of the Pakistanis have been found involved in illegal entry through agents and then unfortunately also in drug trafficking, many of whom are imprisoned in the jails there.
The importance of palm oil for Malaysia can be gauged from the fact that it is the second largest producer of palm oil after Indonesia. Palm trees were originally planted in Nigeria in the 1870s for decoration. However, their production on a regular commercial basis began in the 1960s and later, due to integrated planning, Malaysia soon became the world’s largest exporter of palm oil, reducing poverty in the country. I got a lot of help. Today, palm is cultivated in 15% of the country. When we entered the city, it was getting late in the afternoon and we were feeling hungry. I saw a local restaurant nearby, so I entered without thinking. The atmosphere of the restaurant was not much different from the atmosphere of my country. I saw the menu and ordered dal rice and chicken. The food was very tasty and I ate it to my heart’s content. By the way, although Malaysia is a Muslim country, halal food is not necessarily available in every restaurant here, so it is better to find out before ordering.
Our hotel was located in the heart of the city. There are a large number of modern as well as colonial buildings. The city of Kuala Lumpur has a population of about 1.8 million, with a beautiful blend of Chinese, Indian, ancient Malay and European culture. After eating, they entered the hotel and were exhausted. It was reported on the phone that the bus will leave for the city tour at 5 o’clock, so get ready immediately. When we got out of the hotel, we found out that there has been a period of rain. Due to being on the equator, the weather in Kuala Lumpur remains the same all year round. Due to the high rainfall, the air humidity is very high. Remember, Kuala Lumpur also has a unique record of 200 days of rain in a year.
The first leg of the tour included a tour of the king’s palace. This palace is called Astana Nigara in Malay language. Interestingly, the Malay script is Arabic in style. Although Malaysia gained independence from Britain in 1957, the system of government is still British-style, with a continuation of the monarchy, and every five years the head of state of one of Malaysia’s nine states He holds the office of monarch, while the head of government is called the prime minister, who is elected by parliament.
