IPOH: Owners of business premises and private buildings will not be issued with fines or compound notices for not flying the state flag or lighting their buildings in conjunction with the birthday of the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Nazrin Shah, next Friday, the state government said.

Perak state secretary Ahmad Suaidi Abdul Rahim said all efforts to encourage business premises and private building owners to do so should be done prudently.

“All efforts to instill the spirit of loyalty to the Sultan of Perak among the people must be done wisely and diplomatically so that authentic loyalty is ingrained in the people,” he said in a statement here today.

Ahmad Suaidi said government buildings, educational institutions and schools should fly the state flag while business premises and private buildings including houses of worship are encouraged to do so voluntarily.
