Jalan Raja Laut 1 renamed as Jalan Palestin

KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 28): Jalan Raja Laut 1 will now be known as Jalan Palestin.

Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan said the idea to change the road name was mooted from the World Quds Day peaceful assembly which was held at the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) Square on May 26 to 31, last year.

“The Federal Territories Ministry had requested to name one road in Kuala Lumpur as Jalan Palestin.

“Renaming the road symbolises Malaysia’s support for the Palestinian people‘s struggle against the oppression and ultimately, forming a Palestine country,” he said in a statement yesterday.

Nor Hisham said the process to identify the most suitable road to be renamed as Jalan Palestin took quite some time because it had to go through proper procedure.
