Mixed reaction to demolition of Pudu Jail

Nothing much i would like to say,but i hope some part of the wall facing Jalan Hang Tuah and especially the Pudu Jail Gate would be relocated to National Museum.

History always related to number of its age ,history is still history regardless it had good or bad memories to us,for all the generation study what is the lesson behind.

No one party could decides that it was not historic because it does not give any proud moments to us?Ironically the real reason was to give way for business development,(hadoi...this is cyber days la minister,you twist sikit,we all surely know).
Nonetheless, one of historic moments prevailed despite one of our historic values disappeared like dust flewn into the air.
Big claps and bravo to all parties who "successfully" torn down one of landmark that has been part of KL image these days.
