Guan Eng urges PM Anwar to call for emergency NSC meeting after latest arson attack on KK Mart

DAP chairman Lim Guan Eng today urged Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to call for an emergency National Security Council (NSC) meeting, following the arson attacks on three KK Super Mart outlets amid the ‘Allah’ socks controversy.

(MMO) – He said the meeting should discuss the current situation following yesterday’s firebombing of a third and latest KK Super Mart outlet in Kuching, Sarawak

The NSC, popularly known by its Malay initials MKN, is a joint federal agency under the Prime Minister’s Department that is responsible for advising the federal and state governments on matters related to national security and the safety of Malaysians.

Lim, who is the Bagan MP and Air Putih assemblyman said it was of concern that the latest attack involved a KK Super Mart outlet in Sarawak, a tolerant state that is famed for upholding unity in diversity.

“Clearly no place is now safe in Malaysia from attacks on KK Super Mart outlets.

“Since Umno’s national leadership has decided to back the party’s Youth chief Dr Muhamad Akmal Saleh in his continued boycott of the outlets, the federal government must step in to prevent any fueling of anger from spiraling dangerously out of control,” he said.

Lim said that yesterday’s attack on the KK Super Mart outlet still happened despite royal reminders by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Ibrahim and Perak Ruler Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah, as well as stern warnings by the prime minister, home minister and top police officers.
