Who Was Raja Laut, and Why Do We Have Roads Named After Him?

The Federal Territories Ministry announced over the weekend that Jalan Raja Laut 1 in Kuala Lumpur has been renamed as Jalan Palestin, sparking off both confusion and criticism. We look at the issue and find out more about who Raja Laut himself was, as well as the larger issue of changing historical road names.
