Police give assurance to resolve Indira Gandhi’s family issues

The police have given an assurance that they will resolve the dispute between M. Indira Gandhi and her ex-husband, Muhammad Riduan Abdullah who is currently abroad.


Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador said the police wanted to resolve the issue their own way without any intervention from any quarters to ensure that Indira Gandhi could be reunited with her daughter, Prasana Diksa, 11.


“Let us do our work…I do not want to politicise this case or (have) any stakeholder to intervene because this issue is so sensitive,” he said.




The IGP was speaking to reporters after the presentation of the certificate of recognition for the Police Air Operations Force Training Base (PLPGU) as an Approved Training Organisation – Flight Training Organisation (ATO-FTO) and Approved Training Organisation – Type Rating Training Organisation’ (ATO-TRTO) by the Civil Aviation Authority Malaysia (CAAM) at the Ipoh PLPGU here today.


Abdul Hamid said the police had never been silent in resolving the case and had even appointed a senior official to contact and consult with Muhammad Riduan so that they could follow the order issued by the court previously.


“There are constraints to bring him (Muhamad Riduan) back (to Malaysia). However, we have been negotiating since last year to persuade him. There has been communication, even if it was through an intermediary and not face to face.



“The communication with Muhamad Riduan had been very positive, but when there were negative reports and comments, he backed off,” Abdul Hamid said.


At present, there is no indication of Muhammad Riduan’s whereabouts. He disappeared with Prasana Diksa in 2011.


In January 2018, the Federal Court ruled that the conversion of Indira Gandhi’s three children to Islam  almost 10 years ago, was null and void.

MOH looking into fully opening Malaysia-Singapore border


The Health Ministry (MOH) is looking into fully reopening the Malaysia-Singapore border for daily commute, minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba said.


He said the plan to reopen the border came following pressure from the public whose livelihood had been affected by the border closing.


“The extension of the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) until Dec is a crucial period for the ministry to determine the best time to allow the opening of the border for daily commuters.





“This is because during this period, we will be able to assess and acquire valuable inputs from both countries, including methods to reduce COVID-19 infection,” he told the media after the launch of the Lego mural specially dedicated to COVID-19 frontliners, at Legoland Theme Park, here, today.


He stressed that the ministry would utilise the data and follow the stipulated regulations, to prevent claims of not doing their best in controlling the disease and not taking care of the people’s wellbeing.


Dr Adham said the ministry is also planning to double the number of swab test conducted under the Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL) and Periodic Commuting Arrangement (PCA) schemes.



Currently, 2000 swab tests are done daily under the PCA scheme and 400 under the RGL scheme.


Meanwhile Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Ir Hasni Mohammad, who was also present at the event said, the state government would continue to push for the border reopening.


“I will continue to urge the federal government not to consider the Green Travel Bubble plan for Johor-Singapore border opening.


“Johor-Singapore (relationship) is unique, that is why we do not hesitate to allow movement of lorries that carry food, medical supplies, essential items and such, because here the human element is involved and between Johor and Singapore things are different,” he said while urging the federal government to consider this unique position.


Also present at the event was Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri.

Appreciate Rukun Negara, not just recite it as pledge


The Rukun Negara needs to be deeply appreciated by all Malaysians regardless of age and background, and not just to be recited as a pledge.


Melaka Public Library (Perpustam) director Mohamed Aizammuddy Mohamed Idris said this is because the Rukun Negara is the basis for unity, harmony and peace among the multiracial citizens who have lived in this country for many years.


“Since school, we have been taught or told to recite the Rukun Negara but in fact the appreciation of the Rukun Negara is more important.





“The impact of appreciating the Rukun Negara in the soul of every Malaysian will be greater than just uttering a pledge,” he told Bernama at the national news agency’s roadshow to enliven the Rukun Negara’s 50th Anniversary Celebration, held at the Melaka Public Library here today.


Also present at the event were Rukun Negara 50th Anniversary Celebration Roadshow programme coordinator Hasnita Ibrahim and Melaka Bernama bureau chief Mohd Fakri Awang Lah.


The roadshow involves 26 selected locations including the participation of 16 schools nationwide. It ends on Sept 15.



It provides an opportunity for Bernama to promote its various activities related to the Rukun Negara as well as to encourage participation in its activities and programmes, such as Insta Challenge, Rukun Negara Hour, Webinar, e-Tressure Hunt, talks and documentaries.
