Does the Miss Malaysia is the most pretty or most smart girl in Malaysia for her to carry the Miss Malaysia title? Besides, beauty contest itself is a profit-oriented commercial activity which is nothing to do with Malaysia official function.

No private organization should be allowed to use “Malaysia” name to mislead the public that they are sanctioned by the Malaysian government.
