Recently, Malaysians have been up in arms, arguing with each other and getting really riled up over racial and religious issues.
Which is really sad, considering our National Day is JUST AROUND THE CORNER!
To tackle the recent mayhem and return peace and order to the country, Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador has said the police will no longer give warnings to those who try to incite racial and religious sensitivities.
In fact, ANYONE who incites racial or religious discord, including political leaders, will be investigated and arrested immediately.
“I will not hesitate to arrest them (those inciting racial issues). I have instructed my men to investigate cases classified as involving religious and ethnic sensitivities.
“Don’t wait, investigate and arrest. I repeat, no more warnings.“Abdul Hamid Bador via Bernama
According to Hamid, many Malaysians have been misled by irresponsible parties who have been creating certain agendas.
Advising his countrymen to avoid acting on their emotions, he added that deceived individuals often shared unconfirmed news on social media, insulting and ridiculing the country’s leaders.
Such acts of disrespect then left the people confused and scared while the country seemed to go into complete disarray.
“I urge the public not to be fooled by the political games of certain parties. Before they realise it, they are trapped, and the person who viral the video has no clue how it all started and is eventually arrested and charged.
“My advice is to not to act recklessly and emotionally.”Abdul Hamid Bador via Bernama
He called on political leaders to act responsibly and explained that those who continue to incite racial and religious discord will be held accountable for their actions.
“I call on political leaders to have a sense of responsibility this month (National Month) because we want to celebrate National Day.
“Many irresponsible statements are made, they (political leaders) should be held accountable after we had successfully upheld the democratic process (in the last general election).
“Now it’s like a total mess. All races and the people are afraid of what is going on in our country. Be responsible, do not issue statements without thinking, stop all this.”Abdul Hamid Bador via Bernama
