The Secretary-General of the Home Office says that 93% of terrorists under its programme are rehabilitated. In 5, 10  15 and 20 years, how many will revert to terrorism again? How many join IS?  Extremism and terrorism threaten society.


No terrorism in Malaysia

American embassy issued a terror alert about an attack in Jalan Alur, Kuala Lumpur, on 24 September, 2014. Five days later, Datuk Seri Zahid announced that 3 suspects had been detained and that the police were always ready to ensure there was no act of terrorism and no threat at all in Malaysia. We hope that police monitor and action are always effective.
