After the 2019 Christchurch terror attacks, she joined the police to help her Muslim community, realizing that more women were needed in the force to such attacks that target Muslims.

Muslims, especially the women are scared to talk to law enforces, even more so after the attack. Ali said “they would probably shut the front door if a man turned up to talk to them.”

Ali hopes that having a varied front line would reduce more crime and fear of aggression towards the communities there.

Ali is proud to wear the headscarf, saying that it felt great to be able to wear something that’s officially part of her uniform.

“I think that seeing it, more Muslim women will want to join as well,” she added.

To better protect the communities that reside in the country, the diversity is needed so that the every part of the groups there could feel more welcomed and accepted as what they are, having officials that of the same group as them.

KOTA BHARU, July 30¬†— The COVID-19 pandemic¬†did not stop a group of youths in Kampung Sireh here from¬†pursuing¬†their interest in making wau, a traditional kite widely found in¬†Kelantan.

A check¬†by Bernama at¬†Kampung Sireh Flats¬†found that¬†¬†about seven to 10 youths¬†were producing¬†‚Äėwau puyuh‚Äô (quail kite) or¬†Wau Kelantan ordered by their¬†customers.

According the group’s head, Muhd Nasru Aiman Mohd Zu, 31, they would continue producing wau puyuh even during the pandemic due to steady orders, and they did not want the traditional art to die out.

Even though it is seen as an old-fashioned craft compared to the modern gadgets, it still has its own fans, he told reporters when met here today.

“Alhamdulillah (Praise be to God), there are still young people in this area who are keen to learn how to make these traditional kites.

‚ÄúPreviously, we only made kites for competitions, but now¬†the¬†demand for¬†giant-sized kites as decorative pieces is increasing,‚ÄĚ he said, adding that they¬†learned the kite-making¬†skills from his 61-year-old father, Mohd Zu Man.

Muhd Nasru Aiman said despite the economic slowdown, they continued to receive four to five orders a month for a kite and each piece of giant-sized kite could be sold at the price of RM350.

He said the giant-sized kite needs more than five adult men to fly it.
