"He  (Sultan) has traversed communities, chaired sessions talking about how to improve the living condition of our people; how to engender peace and religious harmony in the nation."

"The Sultan has done all these in the last 10 years and we know that democracy itself abhors violence. Without peace, there is no way we can enjoy the benefit of democracy."

"As a royal father, he has done the work of democracy perhaps more than some of us that claim to be politicians ."

"To his singular credit, we have noticed a remarkable progress in this part of our country where the menace of religious crisis has to be degraded," he added.
