The Barbaric Act Of UMNO Selangor Leaders And A Brother Of The Inspector-General of Police(IGP), In Forcing A Church To Take Down A Cross Proves That The Sedition Act Is Used As A Political Weapon Against PR And Those Who Oppose BN When Either The IGP Or The Home Minister Alone Can Decide Whether Investigation Will Be Done Without Fear or Favour.

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 21.4.2015.

The barbaric act of UMNO Selangor leaders and a brother of the Inspector-General of Police(IGP), in forcing a church to take down a cross proves that the Sedition Act is used as a political weapon against PR and those who oppose BN, when either the IGP or the Home Minister alone can decide whether investigation will be done without fear or favour. This disgraceful act of barbarism by the extremist Selangor UMNO-led protesters against a church in Taman Medan, Petaling Jaya, has made news around the world.

The failure by the IGP to take stern action immediately, has put an end to any talk of moderation at the international stage by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. The public questions the IGP’s, loyalty to his duty, impartiality and professionalism in absolving the protesters of any crime, just because his own brother was present amongst the protesters together with UMNO Selangor leaders.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had tried to do damage control, when he contradicted the IGP by stating that this barbaric act in forcing the removal of a cross displayed outside the church, was indeed seditious. However the public has no confidence in such play-acting and sandiwara, or that the Home Minister is genuine in upholding the law when the IGP is more protective over his own brother.

The Home Minister can only prove that he is sincere and genuine about protecting the fundamental rights of freedom of religion of non-Muslims, by asking the IGP to step down temporarily until the police investigation over this seditious case that involved the IGP’s brother is completed. Only by the IGP stepping aside and allow his deputy to take over in the interim period of the police investigation, can the public confidence lost be regained, that there is still rule of law in Malaysia and that the police will uphold the law instead of protecting their own relatives.

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2015年4月21日在吉隆坡发表声明:

雪州巫统领袖及全国总警长胞兄的行动野蛮,强行要求基督教堂拆除十字架,证明煽动法令是用来对付民联及反对国阵者的政治工具,只有全国总警长或内政部长可以决定是否可以无畏无惧地进行调查。

雪州巫统领袖及全国总警长胞兄的行动野蛮,强行要求基督教堂拆除十字架,证明煽动法令是用来对付民联及反对国阵者的政治工具,只有全国总警长或内政部长可以决定是否要无畏无惧地进行调查。由雪州极端巫统领袖主导的八打灵再也美丹花园抗议基督教堂的举动,已经登上了国际新闻版。

全国总警长没有马上采取严厉行动,终结了首相拿督斯里纳吉在国际舞台谈论的任何中庸理论。公众质疑总警长能不能做到“帮理不帮亲”,尽忠职守、公正、专业地让那些犯罪的示威人士脱罪,因为他本身的胞兄也参与了雪州巫统领袖的示威。

内政部长拿督斯里阿末查希正在努力进行损害控制,他发表了与全国总警长不同的声明,他说在基督教堂外强行要求拆除十字架的野蛮行动,其实就是煽动。但是,公众对他们的演技及幌子没有信心,到底内政部长是不是真的要捍卫司法?因为全国总警长很明显地要袒护自己的胞兄。

内政部长唯有要求全国总警长暂停职务,直到警方针对其胞兄涉及煽动案的调查工作结束为止,才可以证明他是真诚地捍卫非穆斯林宗教自由的基本权利。在警方调查期间,让全国总警长暂停职务,由副总警长代其履行职务,公众才能恢复信心,相信马来西亚还有法治,警方会维护司法,而不是帮亲不帮理。
