The Regent of Perak, Raja Dr Nazrin Shah, yesterday advised the country’s leaders to refer to the records of world history to learn from the causes of the fall of many empires and governments, and even monarchs and national leaders.
“This happened because many of those given the opportunity to lead allowed the joy and passion of having power to lead them astray.
“Some among them became complacent, some went astray, some were ill-advised, some adopted wrong decisions and some made miscalculations.
“Such are the historical accounts available on leaders and leadership which the ummah (people) of today should use as the basis of reference so as not to repeat the mistakes,” he said at the state-level Maulidur Rasul celebration and presentation of prizes for memorisation of the Quran at the Banquet Hall of Bangunan Darul Ridzuan, in Ipoh.
