LAHAD DATU: Mubarak urges M'sians to give undivided support to govt
KUALA LUMPUR: The Council of Former Elected Representatives of Malaysia (Mubarak) today urged the people to support the government's efforts and moves in handling the Southern Philippines armed intruders situation in Sabah to ensure national peace and security is not threatened.
Its information chief, Datuk Abdul Rahman Sulaiman, said the Council fully supported the actions taken by the government in its attempt to resolve the situation and hoped Malaysians could do the same for the government and security forces as well.
"This is the time the government of Malaysia needs the people's undivided support," he told Bernama here today.
Abdul Rahman said if the armed intrusion was not handled well, it may turn into a long-drawn insurgency.
"Malaysians must not forget the Emergency era (against the communist terrorists between 1948 to 1960)," he added. -- BERNAMA
