Insults against the royal institution should not occur in a country practising the constitutional monarchy system which places the king as the head of Islamic religion.
The Regent of Pahang, Tengku Hassanal Ibrahim Abdullah, said he was deeply affected by the recent actions of certain parties who had insulted the royal institution and the matter should not be viewed lightly.
“Stern action should be taken, in accordance with the law to ensure the dignity of the royal institution continues to be respected by all parties,” he said.
Tengku Hassanal said this when officiating of the second session of the 14th Pahang State Legislative Assembly in Kuantan today.
At the same time, he also expressed concern over the attitude of some unscrupulous parties who seemed to challenge the sanctity of Islam in this country.
