“My condolences to the entire family of the late Tun Mohammed Hanif Omar, former Inspector-General of Police.

“May the soul of the late Tun Mohammed Hanif be blessed by the grace of Allah SWT and be placed among the faithful and righteous,” the Sultan of Pahang and the Tengku Ampuan of Pahang wrote in a post on the Pahang Royal House Facebook page.

Hanif, 85, passed away at 2.15am yesterday due to kidney disease. He was appointed Malaysia’s fourth IGP at the age of 35 on June 8, 1974, and served in the post until Jan 15, 1994.

“In recognition of Mohammed Hanif’s services and contributions, the late Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah bestowed upon him the Dato’ Seri Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah (S.S.S.A.) award in 1992.

“Their Royal Highnesses pray that Mohammed Hanif’s soul be showered with divine mercy and be placed among the believers and the righteous,” it said.
