The State National Registration Department (NRD) need to be more sensible-and-observant of the unique features of Sabahans when dealing with their religious status.
The NRD must not simply assume that a person is a Muslim when he or she has a ‘Bin’ or ‘Binti’ in their names, which is quite a common feature among the natives in sabah state.
It causes difficulty for the Sabahan especially for the elederly locals living in rurul areas.
They (NRD) need to attend to the appeals immediately when ‘errors’ were made in their IC. Don’t drag your feet in correcting the error.
