  • This is extra and unnecessary work to the IGP. A lawyer qualification Vice President of PUtra is sad to have wasted your education as an intellect who can be soooo narrow minded.

  • The writer has committed offence(s) under the Penal Code chapter on "Offences Relating to Religion" and /or other laws. He cannot be given face. He has no "special privilege" to bully the non-Muslims. If he is not charged and sentenced, we can expect not only him but many other bigots to do similar things just to see Ministers rushing to put the fire out. The Ministers' action was good, but police action must follow to drive the message home that "special privilege" does not extend to creating racial discord and disharmony. The ball is now at the feet of the police. At the same time, what about action against the Manjung rowdies who trespassed into a convenience store and demanded that all the beer bottles be removed or else they will be smashed? It is because no action was taken against such rowdies and biogots in the past that has emboldened them to feign "sensitivities", manufacture "reasons" and so on. In this case, is it true that parents had complained to him about the decorations? According to the school, for the past 12 years they have been decorating for all the major festivals without any complaints from the parents. To let him go unscatched will only encourage more of it.
