JERANTUT: The early morning attack at the Ulu Tiram police station should not be taken lightly despite the country's overall peaceful state, says Datuk Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

The Deputy Prime Minister stated that the Friday (May 17) incident, which saw two policemen killed and one injured, was totally isolated and the Royal Malaysia Police and National Security Council (NSC) should promptly take proactive measures to prevent such shocking occurrences.

Ahmad Zahid expressed confidence in Malaysia’s status as one of the most peaceful nations, as reflected in its peace index.

"Malaysia is an exemplary country with a globally recognised deradicalisation policy.

"Thus, I believe our country should not face terrorism issues. We must ensure our nation remains free from terrorism, and maintain harmony among various races and religions. The swift police response in Ulu Tiram is greatly appreciated, and we aim to eradicate any terrorism influence or violence,” he added.

He was speaking to reporters after the inauguration of the 5.5 Megawatt Biogas Power Plant by Felcra Japutra Sdn Bhd and Cenergi SEA Berhad (Cenergi) on Saturday (May 18), which was also attended by Pahang Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail.- Bernama
