KANGAR, April 8 (Bernama) -- The Raja of Perlis, Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Putra Jamalulail, has announced the cancellation of his 78th birthday celebration on July 17.
The Perlis state government, in a statement, said the Ruler consented to the cancellation after taking into account the current COVID-19 situation.
“His Majesty took note of the current situation of the COVID-19 pandemic which is still dangerous to hold a celebration event such as his birthday,” the statement said.
Tuanku Syed Sirajudin made the same decision last year when the country was hit in the first wave of COVID-19.
