I wrote earlier about the puzzling arrangement in which non-Muslims were not allowed into the Johor royal mausoleum to pay their respects to the late Sultan of Johor.
However, this article from the Star indicates that it is more the bureaucracy that has made such a rule. Foreigners, some of whom have Christian names were allowed into the area.
Guess we have more respect for our foreign guests. What a shame to deny the locals the chance to pay their respects.
