Fifteen of these former senior Police officers received DIMP.

Some of these men are in their seventies and were already fighting the communist terrorists and rebels since the late 50s.

These men were the true cold warriors whom risked their lives and contributed immensely for the blanket of security that were provided to all Malaysians and this great nation. Their hardwork, enabled and facilitated the country to be stable, the rakyat remained in peace and harmony. Thus, we managed to progress this far.

The success of the security forces, particularly the Royal Malaysian Police resulted in Malaysians won against the 45 years war with the communist terrorists and rebels. The success of the Special Branch and other intelligence outfits minimise the open warfare, where the loss of lives is much lesser as compared to the fight against insurgency in the region. The Special Branch managed to end the war with a treaty, Hadyaii Accord, almost 30 years after Emergency was officially declared ended in 1960.

Let us never dishonour these men by giving power to the new age Min Yuens, who in spirit are those who as minoritywant to exert power and control over the majority, even at the cost of this nation being ‘burned down’ and the expense of stability, harmony, peace and inter-racial and religious understanding, tolerance and fostered acceptance.

  1. Thank you Sir, for honouring my father and his comrade-in-arms. Fyi the SACs (I & II) are in the eighties while the ACPs are in their 70s. The rank and file are in their late 50s-60s. Due to the highly confidential nature of their work, the SB men are very rarely decorated publicly. It is for the safety of their families as well. Personally, I feel immensely proud to be a member of the SB family; the men carried out their duties with dedication and fervour anonymously and without fuss. Even if they are forgotten, they won’t complain.

    • No, they are not forgotten.

      We owe them a debt of gratitude for their service. Thanks. Dato’ Zainal is a hero. Just like all of them.

    • The ones who fought on the quiet, prepared even not getting awards and hounours, are really appreciable.

      Hope there’ll be very many more of them, especially as security matters are becoming more problematic, secret societies, thugs and gangsters more daring, Ah Longs, criminals and subversives better equipped to avoid detection.

  2. Tabik Tuan. Terima kasih tak terhingga dan ingatan tulus ikhlas dari kami atas segala jasa serta pengorbanan yang tuan-tuan curahkan.

    As for those New Age Min Yuen, they obviously persevering in their treacherous way to gain power and ultimately imposed their will on the good people of this country. I’ll let what The Nobles of the House of Lord in their sitting, 27 Feb 1952 do the talking. The following are extract from HoL sitting – HL Feb 27 February 1952 vol 175 cc299-365 ‘The Situation in Malaya’:

    …… they claim that this campaign of horrible, cruel and relentless terrorism is a tight for freedom. The answer to that is that the great majority of the terrorists are not Malays, to whom the county belongs, but Chinese. I believe that out of the ten terrorist regiments only one is in any way a kind of Malay regiment; and rarely are any Malays captured. The great majority of the police fighting against the terrorists are Malays.

    …..This is a campaign carried on by a minority of convinced Communists, supported by a large number of younger men who would be likely to join gangs anywhere and also, I am told, by a certain number of men who have been intimidated into joining these gangs. They are trying to force an oppressive Government on the great mass of the people, and their terrorism is designed to reduce the country to chaos, out of which there may come a Communist dictatorship.

    Perhaps we should not be too gullible to think that the emergency is over after the terrorist communist ‘surrendered’ in Dec 1989. We should never hve allowed those Min Yuen just melt away in all those Kampung Baru. It is a well known tactics employed by the communist to make a ‘tactical’ retreat. They even have a term for it – “Peredeska” meaning “seeking breathing space”. Today the Malay are weak, divided so they see an opportunity, an opening – a government ripe for the taking.

    So fellow citizen, ignore the Min Yuen, and it will be at our own peril.

    • Bloody good piece, bro.

      I’d like to copy what you wrote for commenting elsewhere, if I may.

      • Sure, it will be my pleasure.

    • Many question the loyalty of the Chinese and Indian as Malaysians. Growing up in as a child of a policeman in the Police Force in the early 70s-80s, I attest that such questions do not exist in Police Force. It did not exist then, and now. We could not have defeated the communists without the brave Chinese officers who went undercover at grave mortal risk to ferret vital information to the uniformed policemen who then had to engage the enemy in combat. Many SB officers and informants died, acknowledged only in the secret ceremonies in the invisible Pantheon of the Special Branch. On the list is the late Dato’ Ramasamy Veerapan (Tuan Rama as he was popularly known, who headed SB operations in Kelantan),and the late Tuan Codfrey Lawrence who was Eurasian, I had the privilege of speaking to his widow at ceremony.

      So you see, when it comes to the defence of this country, it matters not what ancestry, for underneath the skin it is “Darah sama merah,tulang sama putih”.

      For the fallen, it is also as case of “Air mata sama jernih”, because the loss affects family, friends and comrades.

      My grandfather and granduncle were abducted by the communists. Until today, their bodies were never recovered. Interestingly enough, according to eyewitnesses, the perpetrators were Malays. Communists, but Malay nonetheless. They all wore caps with the red ‘Bintang Tiga’.

      Be mindful that the enemies of Malaysia matter not what ancestry they hail from.

      Today, I see the same danger facing Malaysia only this time the weapons are not guns and bombs. Again, those who want to harm this country arise from amongst our ranks, preferring to abide by foreign ideologies of democracy.

      It is my greatest wish for all Malaysians of sound mind to be able to see with clarity, cherish our history, value our cultures, appreciate our bounty and separate the wheat from the chaff, the diamonds from the glass.

  3. Dear Mr Azman, I have nothing but respect to those who defended this country, then and today irrespective of their creed or colour. Tan Sri Dr. Too Chee Chew (CC Too) was one of them. There was certainly Chinese, Indian and numerous other races who, alongside the Malay fought and spilt their blood for this beloved country of ours.

    My problems rest with those who blatantly took advantage of the peace and freedom that we enjoy today to further their twisted cause. Can anyone deny that the great majority of the anti-establishment/government, and by extension anti-Malay/Islam came from the same ethnicity as those of the Emergency days? Co-incidence? Yes democracy call for freedom of expression, choice and assosiation. But to use that as a tool deliberately to instigate the sentiment of the population in order to bring about chaos and disorder so that this small group of people can rise to power and eventually impose their will onto the rest? That is no democracy, that was how the Nazi, Bolshevik, Mao and the Facist come to power. Have we not learned anything from May 13?

    By the way Iam a realist, not an idealist. My condolences for the lost of your family member.

  4. Dear Varuna,
    Please don’t misunderstand my comments. It is not meant to criticise your post. But after reading my reply again, I see how it can be read as such. My comment was directed to those whom you correctly described as they who take advantage of our country’s peace and freedom to further their twisted cause. My intent is to mske them aware of the sacrifices of the previous genarations of non-malay citizenz who chose to believe in our country enough to stake their lives. By pushing their nefarious agenda, they sully the sacrifices of our patriots, past and present. They dishounour our heroes who are of the same stock as them. Perhaps I made my poit across too subtly.
    Thank you for your kind comments, they are very much appreciated. My humble apologies to you if my comments came across to you as a negative response. I assure you it is not meant as such.
    Sincerely,
    Azman Halim

  5. If I had a son, I’ll let him read your blog, sir.

    Everybody here writes like a gentleman.

  6. Dear Bro,
    It is indeed very commendable for DYMM Sultan Pahang to honour those retired officers who have contributed tremendously towards peace and security of the Nation.Yes the Malaysian Special Branch (MSB) has been playing pivotal roles, albeit without much fanfare, in ensuring that the Nation remains vibrant.
    Kebawah DYMM kami menjunjung kasih yang tidak terhingga diatas kesudian mengenang jasa mereka yang telah tertinggal. Apa yang dilakukan oleh DYMM Tuanku Sultan Pahang tidak pernah dilakukan oleh mana mana Sultan pun sahingga ini. He is different!
    I am equally proud of all those who recieved the awards. Heaqrtiest congratulations to them.

  7. Dear All,
    My congratulations to all those who were awarded by HRH Sultan of Pahang. Daulat Tuanku!! All of you deserved it for you all had done what was expected as a policeman more so as Special Branch Officers.It was indeed a memorable occasion to remember and to cherish meeting those involved at Kuantan n Pekan although I was there only as an invited guest. My thanks to the Director of Special Branch, Malaysia for his kind invitation. It was so meaningful to me.
    Yes, we had gone through difficult days combating the CPM/CTO in and outside the jungle, but it was so challenging and satisfying inspite
    of all the risks involved. Some of us in SB were prepared for ultimate
    sacrifice if need be to defeat the CPM/CTO and that was the spirit we all endured with full commitment during the 1st n 2nd Emergency. This
    resulted in bringing about peace and prosperity to the people and country of Malaysia. I am proud of my small contribution too and proudly can tell some stories to my children n grandchildren. Hopefully, the younger generation will remember our security forces sacrifices and take cognizance of the country’s history. In departure, all I wish to
    say is that, ” I am very proud to one of the members of the most elite
    branch of the world police force, and that is the Malaysian Special
    Branch”.

  8. […] majoriti perlu ingat dan waspada ialah ada dikalangan kita adalah bukan sahaja berjasa, malah mereka juga amat berpengalaman dan mempunyai kemampuan psikologi untuk berjuangan dengan cabaran ini. Mereka adalah sumber yang baik untuk menjadi rujukan dan penasihat. Namun, mereka memerlukan […]
