KUALA LUMPUR: The Deputy Prime Minister’s wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor has slammed those who posted slanderous allegations about her on the Internet, stating they were not true and those who needed clarifications should ask her directly.

“Whatever you read on the Internet, don’t telan bulat-bulat (take it as it is).

“I guarantee that all the stories on the Internet about me are not true,” she said in her speech last night at a charity dinner organised by the Kuala Lumpur Utara Perkim Women’s group.

The group’s chairman Puan Sri Minuira Sabki said they planned to set up a halfway house for senior citizens who were abandoned by their children and appealed to Rosmah for help in getting a government property.

Rosmah was responding to certain allegations about her published recently on the Internet and expressed disappointment that some resorted to deceit.

“When I am patient and quiet, people resort to slander. I kept quiet previously thinking that people can decide for themselves but now even ridiculous stories are being believed.

Fitnah (Slander) is not a small sin that can be easily forgiven especially when it involves trying to bring disrepute to others,” she said.

“Don’t believe those who use deceit to get positions. They are willing to fool the community to get what they want. May Allah forgive them and may they return to the right path.”

As to Minuira’s request, Rosmah asked her to write a letter and she would forward it to the relevant parties.

“I am not promising anything. Times have changed. If I ask the government office for help, then stories will be cooked up that I’m trying to control them and more defamation will be made,” she said to the laugher of those present.
