KUANTAN: The Pahang government and several NGOs and youth organisations in the Kuantan district today lodged five police reports over several false online accounts in the name of the Sultan of Pahang seen as an insult to the institution of the royalty.
Pahang Women and Family Development, Communications and Multimedia Committee chairman Datuk Shahaniza Shamsuddin and representatives of the NGOs and youth organisations made the reports at the Kuantan District Police headquarters here.
“This action of a small group of irresponsible people should be checked and stern action must be taken as it insults the Sultan of Pahang and creates an unhealthy situation among the people.
“I hope the police and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) can identify these irresponsible people and take firm action against them to prevent the spread of such negative activity,” she told reporters.
Shahaniza said it was feared that such irresponsible action could incite hatred in the people towards the institution of the royalty.
