Only after the last tree has been cut down;
Only after the last fish has been caught;
Only after the last river has been poisoned;
Only then will you realize that money cannot be eaten.

History Erased - Pulau Jerejak

by Forest Ang

.....I wouldn't want to spend a single cent on the resort. Would you......?.....

History was erased. Sad but true.

At the leper's hospital, the fame cemetery of two Russians was no more surrounded by wards. The ward with the extraordinary urinal was under the rubble. The inmates' quarters were wiped out. The hospital staffs' quarters had been destroyed. The place is now left barren except the mortuary or perhaps a dispensary. No development was seen there.

So why was the artifact erased?

At the prison, the maximum security prison was bulldozed. The female prison was gone. The workshop had disappeared. The kitchen vanished. A few dozen prisoners' quarters had become scrap iron. The place is now left with 3 quarters and a rebuilt concrete hall. It is almost barren. No development was further seen. So why was the artifact erased?

What is the motive? Scrap?

Yes, SCRAP. Many of the prisons were made of thick steel.

Thick steel bar fetch good price. Somebody was making profit from the destruction of history. Who? Are they been sanctioned by the Government? Is there a graft? Is there a corruption case? Government's property becoming scrap iron. Perhaps our beloved PM should look into this case.

Who were the people who erase history? Are they the resort people? Are they people who were sanctioned by the Government?

It cannot be undone now but I hope ACA or BPR should look into this issue. If not, more history will be erased.

So what have you got to see in P.Jerejak now? Nothing, except the teambuilding park which you can find it anywhere else in Malaysia. Nothing, perhaps the newly built suspension bridge over the reservoir. Nothing, maybe the swimming pool and the modern accommodations.

If you are planning to see the Leper's hospital or the fame prison then I must say you are too late. History had been erased. I wouldn't want to spend a single cent on the resort. Would you?

Penang Leads OK! destroying heritage!
