IT'S OFFICIAL: HM Sultan Muedzul Lail T Kiram, 35th Sultan of Sulu and North Borneo (Sabah) is prepared to fight for Sabah. This photo has just been released for publication to declare His Majesty's intention.
We support Sultan Muedzul Kiram's intention. Long live HM Sultan Muedzul Lail T Kiram, 35th sultan of the Sultanate of Sulu and North Borneo (Sabah)!
Sultan Muedzul Kiram is the eldest grandson of Sultan Esmail Kiram I, the sultan who officially transferred sovereignty rights over Sabah to the Republic of the Philippines in 1962. His father (now deceased) was the sultan before him.
The coronation of Sultan Muedzul Kiram took place in September 2012 on the sacred grounds of the Astanah Darul Jambangan in Maimbung, Sulu, Philippines, seat of the sultanate throne. The last Sultan who was crowned in Maimbung, Sulu was HM Almarhum Sultan Esmail E Kiram (grandfather of current reigning Sultan Muedzul Kiram), the sultan of Sulu who transferred sovereignty rights over Sabah to the Republic of the Philippines in 1962.
Today, HM Sultan Muedzul Kiram, is the only Sultanate of Sulu and North Borneo heir to have come forward and vowed to act IN THIS CRITICAL PERIOD of national confusion related to Malaysia's official admittance in Mindanao (and the burying of our claim through inaction). HM Sultan Muedzul Kiram has made it clear that he will fight for the return of Sabah.
