Why are the Police treating the Sungai Besar UMNO chief Datuk Jamal Md Yunos who is continuing to undermine racial peace and social harmony with kid-gloves when they could be twitter-quick to deal with Opposition and NGO personalities even on non-existing offences?
Jamal was back in his old game of undermining racial peace and social harmony when he threatened on Wednesday morning about a possible riot by the “red shirts” at Petaling Street tomorrow, which is likely to result in the closure of business of many of the traders, as happened on the Sept 16 Red Shirts Rally, which caused great harm to racial peace and social harmony as well as damaged Malaysia’s international image as a safe destination for foreign investors and tourists.
There is no doubt that the police would have come down hard and fast if they are dealing with Opposition or NGO personalities immediately on Wednesday morning itself within minutes after Jamal’s press conference outside a police station, but there has been no action but only empty talk by the police up to now.
This is why Malaysians wondering about the police double-standards in a clear-cut case of inexcusable offences of undermining racial peace and social harmony, and damaging Malaysia’s national and international image as a safe destination for foreign investors and tourists.
In fact, if the target had been Opposition or NGO personalities, the Home Minister Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi would have roared into action. Why is Zahid as tame as a mouse in this case of blatant and repeated threat to racial peace and social harmony, causing traders in Petaling Street to decide whether to close shop tomorrow?
If there is any closure of business in Petaling Street in Kuala Lumpur tomorrow, it would be proof of the failure of the Police and Home Ministry to be the custodian of peace, law and order in the country, and their failure will be a major issue in Parliament when it reconvenes in less than a month.
