QUESTION NO. 4:
Dr. S. Ramakrishnan ask the Minister in the Prime Minister Department to state how people can be sure that the title Datuk actually awarded by the King or Sultan. Are there any web sites that are accessible to ensure the validity of the Datuk title. This is because there are many who use the title Datuk fake for the sake of personal interest.
