Community accepts decision

JOHOR BARU: The Muslim community here accepts the decision on Pulau Batu Puteh.

They are grateful as the International Court of Justice had ruled in Malaysia's favour on the ownership of Middle Rocks although jurisdiction of South Ledge is up in the air.

The imam of Masjid Ungku Muhammad Khalid in Skudai Kiri, Kamal Puteh, said his mosque had performed prayers on the matter at every maghrib and Friday prayers so the court would decide in Malaysia's favour."

Although we lost PBP to Singapore, we are grateful as we managed to get Middle Rocks. On the decision of South Ledge, we will leave it to Allah again," he said.

Masjid Jamek Bandar Baru Uda committee secretary Yahya Moktaram said nobody lost all and nobody won all in the court decision as both Malaysia and Singapore got their fair share of results.
