QUEEN CALLS ON M'SIANS TO BE MORE GRATEFUL, APPRECIATIVE OF SECURITY FORCES PERSONNEL

KUALA LUMPUR, May 19 (Bernama) -- Her Majesty Raja Zarith Sofiah, Queen of Malaysia, today called upon Malaysians to be more grateful and appreciative of the sacrifices and services rendered by members of the security forces for the nation.

Her Majesty emphasised that everyone should remember that it was because of the presence and dedication of security personnel across the country that citizens could enjoy safe and peaceful lives with their loved ones.

“Instead of finding fault, can we instead be thankful to all those in our security forces, the ones who serve in the armed forces, the bomba, the police?”

“The next time you see someone in the armed forces, the bomba, or the police, please realise these are men and women who live far away from their families and who know their lives can be in danger at any time during the day or night,” said Her Majesty in a post on the Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar official Facebook page tonight.

Her Majesty also noted that there were some who did not show a good attitude on social media in appreciating the contributions of the security forces.

“We always choose to complain and find fault without being thankful and realising how lucky we are to live in a country that is not at war,” Her Majesty said.

Her Majesty urged all citizens to recognise the good deeds of the Royal Malaysia Police personnel who were willing to risk their lives to ensure the country's security.

“Amongst the groups of people we criticise are police personnel. We only choose to see what some of them have done wrong. But we overlook what they do right. How many of us are willing to patrol the streets, aware we can be attacked and killed at any time?

And while we are safe and sound asleep in our homes, there are many (in all the police stations around the country) who are at the police stations in the middle of the night,” said Her Majesty.

The Queen reminded the public that the attack on the Ulu Tiram Police Station, which resulted in the deaths of two officers and severe injuries to another, occurred while they were on duty protecting the public in the wee hours of the morning.

At 2.45 am on Friday, two policemen - Constable Ahmad Azza Fahmi Azhar and Constable Muhamad Syafiq Ahmad Said - died when the Ulu Tiram Police Station was attacked by a suspect.
