237 reports made against Ngeh’s controversial Tweet

(Bernama) – A total of 237 police reports have been lodged in the state against Perak DAP chairman Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham for his controversial tweet questioning the moves taken by Muslims in protesting the anti-Islamic ‘Innocence of Muslims’ film.

Perak police chief Datuk Mohd Shukri Dahalan said police would look into the reports and take into consideration all aspects before making any decisions on the matter. 

“So far, we have collected the reports lodged statewide and my officers will study them. 

“All developments will be announced later,” he told reporters after attending Crime Prevention Forum launch by Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir here yesterday. 

Mohd Shukri also advised certain quarters, as well as members of the public, to take caution in making public statements to avoid causing public anger. 

“In the context of multi-racial people, we want to live in harmony without any uncomfortable feelings, especially in issues involving race and religion,” he said. 

In his tweet two days ago, Ngeh questioned Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaludin’s intention to stage a protest against the short film and inferred whether Muslims were spending too much time an d energy on the issue. 

The low-budget film directed by Sam Bacile from California, which insulted Prophet Muhammad and Islam, had sparked violent protests among Muslims across the world.
