Report Hadi for threatening national unity, Guan Eng urges people

(FMT) – DAP chairman Lim Guan Eng has urged Malaysians to lodge police reports against PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang for making repeated claims against the non-Malays, saying it threatens national unity.

This comes after Hadi claimed in a Facebook post yesterday the Malays were being “openly conned” and that non-Muslims and non-Malays were the “biggest plunderers”.

In August last year, Hadi had also cast non-Muslims and non-Bumiputeras as being at the root of corruption, saying they were “the majority of those involved in ruining the country’s politics and economy”.

Lim said the authorities should take action against Hadi, adding that the previous government’s inaction over his past remarks seemed to have emboldened him.

“This is not the first time that Hadi has relentlessly singled out non-Muslims and non-Malays for the problems faced by the Malays.

“Malaysians should lodge police reports against Hadi to stop such divisive politics that would threaten national unity and integration,” he said in a statement today.

Lim said corruption was an issue that affected all ethnic communities, regardless of religion or race.

At least 28 police reports had been lodged against Hadi last year for claiming that non-Muslims and non-Bumiputeras were the majority of Malaysians involved in corruption.

Bukit Aman had summoned the Marang MP to give his statement.

Last month, home minister Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said the investigation was ongoing and that the investigation paper would be submitted to the Attorney-General’s Chambers.
