  • If no action is taken to charge this "preacher" and give him the mandatory minimum two years in prison out of the maximum 5, (Sec. 298A Penal Code) then it can mean only one thing, and that is that his actions are STATE SACNTIONED.

  • Unfortunately in this country it seems to have become the accepted practise by the successive governments except PH for leniency towards racist attacks against non-Muslims. We have been sacrificed to cover up the incompetency of thewe governments and the consolidation of votes for power. Day by day The future is looking bleaker for non-Muslims in this country.

  • This is the result of the government giving face (bagi muka) to the racists over the past decades. It amounted to STATE SANCTIONING OF RACISM as action was never taken. Just a few months back the Attorney General said he would NOT take action against preachers Vinoth and Firdaus against whom many police reports were made. The racists have become so brazen. A few days ago, there was a video clip of some people destroying certain soft-drinks in a convenience store. Destroying other people's property is criminal, isn't it? But they go scot free for doing it in the name of religion. The government cannot talk of "one family" Malaysia and yet close an eye to people who hide behind race and religion to cause ill-will among Malaysians. Why isn't the law brought down on them? https://www.burgielaw.com/resources/act?act_title=Penal+Code&section=298A
