The Heritage Buildings In Kuala Terengganu Is Now Gone.

A row of historical heritage buildings in Kuala Terengganu is now gone.

This is a disaster.

Was there an earthquake in Kuala Terengganu like the one in Port-au-Prince?

There was no earthquake in Kuala Terenggganu.

Before
After

It was a man made disaster and not a natural disaster!

The heritage buildings were very beautiful and so strong.

They were more than 100 years old but did not collapsed on their own.

We should have kept the buildings and paint them to make them more beautiful.

The Haitian were sad to see their historic buildings collapsed.

But a government demolished a row of strong historical buildings using bulldozers.

Just like in the Earth Song video clip when people used bulldozer to destroy trees.

If I can go to the United Nations I’ll tell everybody to stop destroying historical heritage buildings.

We should make a law to protect historical buildings.

People Protested Againts Demolishing The Historical Heritage Building.


UNESCO,Please Save A Heritage Historical Building

Please help me to get this message to UNESCO or United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation.

I hope that UNESCO and everybody who can help me, please  save a historical building in Jalan Bandar, Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia because the government of Terengganu is going to demolish the beautiful, historical building very soon.

The government must not demolish the building because:

  1. The heritage building is more than 100 years old. It is older than my grandmother and my great grandfather.

  2. Kids cannot see the historical building if it is not there anymore. Kids should see historical buildings because they can learn history.

  3. The building is still strong and beautiful. The quality of the building is very good because it can stand for more than 1oo years.

  4. If we demolish the historical building, the historical building is gone.

  5. We waste bricks and money when we demolish the beautiful and strong building.

  6. There will be rubbish everywhere and the drain can be blocked by rubbish. It will cause a flood. A flood is a disaster.

  7. Demolishing a building also cause air pollution.

My grandmother’s bookshop , Alam Akademik is in the building.

Alam Akademik is more than 100 years old.

I love the bookshop because it is so beautiful and there are lots of books.

I think the government should build new buildings on empty lands and take care of the historical building.

We can paint the building to make it more beautiful and shinny.

Please save this historical building.
