KUALA LUMPUR: â€œCome back if you dareâ€, said IGP Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar (pic) in issuing a challenge to Malaysian Islamic State (IS) members.
The Inspector-General of Police was responding to the video made by a Malaysian militant, who directly threatened the Federal Police.
â€œThese militants threaten everyone from afar via video recordings.
â€œIf you are brave enough then come back and face us,â€ he told a press conference after launching the Go to Safety Point initiative on Friday.
While the police are taking such threats seriously, the countryâ€™s top cop insists that they will not be shaken or intimidated.
â€œDonâ€™t ever try to provoke or challenge us.
â€œThe video published recently was not the first one nor will it be the last. The police is always on alert no matter the circumstances,â€ he said.
Khalid vowed that Bukit Aman would not allow IS militants to gain any foothold in the country.
