KUALA LUMPUR – Politicians are reminded not to play with racial or religious issues which can threaten national unity and security.
Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador said, those who played with sensitive issues have been burdening the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM).
As the authority in-charge for the national security, slanders against the races and religion will be tackled seriously by the police.
According to him, all actions in the sensitive activities will be investigated and those involved will be called up for statement recording. The cases will then be referred to the Attorney-General for further action.
“I beg the politicians to be more understanding towards the dynamics of the country. It is rich with multi-races and religion. They must be respected. We need to use these cultural diversity to develop the country.
“Politicians need to use their wisdom, patience, manners with the principles of democracy. However, they should not hurt other people by challenging the authorities.
“We will not compromise and the police will act fairly to maintain national peace, harmony and security,” he said in a news conference on the 2019 Achievements and 2020 Targets of the PDRM in Bukit Aman today.
Also present at the event were the Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Mazlan Mansor, the 10 top directors of PDRM in Bukit Aman such as the Director of Criminal Investigation Department Datuk Huzir Mohamed.
