The National Heritage Department knows how to evaluate world heritage criteria?

In my assessment, Batu Caves at least meeting three criteria,

·to bear a unique or at least exceptional testimony to a cultural tradition or to a civilisation which is living or which has disappeared;

· to be directly or tangibly associated with events or living traditions, with ideas, or with beliefs, with artistic and literary works of outstanding universal significance.

·to contain the most important and significant natural habitats for in-situ conservation of biological diversity, including those containing threatened species of outstanding universal value from the point of view of science or conservation.

I am not expert in heritage stuff, I urge PM Najib hires foreign experts to assess Batu Caves rather let the racist officials to come out absurd conclusion.

To list Batu Caves as a world heritage site is a promise by PM Najib, let’s see how BN fulfill its “janji itu kota” manifesto unlike PR.
