Permaisuri Agong irate over police crackdown on her critics

Upset over apparent police crackdown against her critics, Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah urged the authorities to stop it immediately.

This comes after police arrested several individuals for allegedly making critical comments against the Permaisuri in recent days.

“As I said, I deactivated (my Twitter account), not because I was upset by comments made (against me) but for personal reasons.

“But today, I’m truly upset that police have detained those people. Throughout the years, my husband and I have never made any police report on bad things said about us.

“It’s a free country,” she said in a Twitter posting.

The critical comments came under police radar after it was speculated that Tunku Azizah deactivated her Twitter due to cyberbullying.

However, Tunku Azizah maintained that this was not the case and decided to reactivate her Twitter account following police crackdown.

“Afzan (Tunku Azizah’s daughter) alerted me: ‘Mama, cops arrested two people’.

“I was sad and angry and immediately activated my Twitter. I had no intention for them to be arrested.

“I have personally told the Palace to inform the police not to take action. I repeat again (sic), I deactivated not because of them,” she said.

To those upset over her critics, Tunku Azizah advised them to ‘chill’.

“Chill people… Like my daughter always tell me, chill mama, whenever I’m upset,” she said.
