KUALA LUMPUR – The government has yet to decide on banning the controversial Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) for Win Winism comic published by the Curator of the Asia Comics and Cultural Museum, Hew Kuan Yau.
Deputy Home Minister Datuk Mohd Azis Jamman said, the decision would depend on the investigation by the authorities.
“I still don’t know about the decision on that issue. DAP has also denied their involvement.
“We will look at the result of the investigation as he (Kuan Yau) did not admit that he did it,” he said at the lobby of the Parliament today when asked by the media about the distribution of the comics in school which has been banned by the Minister of Education, Dr Maszlee Malik.
According to Maszlee, the Ministry of Education has never given any permission for its distribution. He has also directed all State Education Departments and District Education Offices to ensure that no school receive and distribute the comics.
A picture of Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir and the President of China, Xi Jinping was also seen in the comic with the caption that the comic was a gift to Xi during the Belt and Road Forum.
However, the Prime Minister’s Office has denied the allegation and said that the comic was brought without following the proper procedure and channel. -MalaysiaGazette
