PEKAN – The Sultan of Pahang, Sultan Ahmad Shah today called on the people to reject the struggle of the Islamic State (IS) militants as it is not based on the true teachings of Islam.

“As such, I call on the people to return to the teachings of the Quran and the sunnah and to exercise tolerance,” said the sultan.

He was speaking at the investiture ceremony held in conjunction with his 85th birthday celebration at Istana Abu Bakar here today.

Also present were the Sultanah of Pahang Sultanah Kalsom; the Tengku Mahkota of Pahang Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah and Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob.
