Sijil Penghargaan

Letter from En. Abd Karim expressing his gratitude to Mr. Chew Choon Ming

The following letter in the Malay language was written by Mr. Abd. Karim b. Abdullah, the headmaster of S.K.Pengkalan Tentera Darat Sg. Besi. The translation is as follows:

I have known Mr. Chew Choon Ming for the past 15 years. When I was living in Kepong Baru, a catastrophe took place during the race riots of 13 May 1969. On that night, a lorry carrying a large crowd of Chinese people stopped in front of my house with the intention of killing us and subsequently all the Malay families in Kepong Baru. I am thankful to God because on that night, Mr. Chew Choon Ming was on duty as the Chairman of Vigilante Corps, and he strongly protested against their intentions and prevented them from disturbing us. We are thankful to Mr. Chew and on the following morning, we were temporarily relocated to Kepong Police Station for our protection.

Mr. Chew Choon Ming is truly a man that upholds unity among the different races in Kepong Baru and without a doubt, a patriotic Malaysian that gave priority to security and unity.
