In Malaysia, PAS is planning a protest outside the Swedish embassy in Kuala Lumpur tomorrow.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, as reported by Berita Harian today said there were no issues with PAS’ plan.
He however did remark that they were “too late” to act as the government had issued a statement condemning the act.
“They (PAS) have the right to do so. There are no issues with a protest, they should express their views. If they want to do so, they can but the government has already done it (opposed the act), in fact we already contacted the Swedish ambassador to inform where we stand,” the prime minister was quoted as saying.
While PAS intends to express their views by way of a street protest, rapper Caprice decided to go down a different road.
In a social media video, Caprice expressed his displeasure of what happened by cutting up a piece of Swedish brand H&M shirt that was bought previously.
