Police must take swift and necessary action against Ustaz Shahul Hamid Seeni Mohd



Press Statement by M Kula Segaran, DAP National Vice Chairman and MP for Ipoh Barat in Ipoh on Thursday, July 31, 2014

Police must take swift and necessary action against Ustaz Shahul Hamid Seeni Mohd

It was reported that Ustaz Shahul Hamid Seeni Mohd has yesterday posted an apology on his Facebook account for insulting the Hindu religion during a speech in Shah Alam in February. 

Shahul’s insult against Hinduism is totally unacceptable, irresponsible and dangerous. The case cannot be closed with a mere apology from him.  The Police must take swift and necessary action against him. 

It has been reported that more than 400 police reports have been lodged nationwide against Shahul. The quantity of police reports shows how angry the public, especially the Hindu community, are over his goddess’s tongue and curry powder remarks.  

Since the last general election, some extremist groups and individuals have been inciting racial and religious tensions and there is no sign that this pattern of things will stop. 

Racial and religious conflict can destroy a nation and the government and Police must not take any act of inciting racial or religious conflict lightly. 

Let tough action against Shahul ‘become a government’s way of reminding all extremists that enough is enough and there will be zero tolerance henceforth on those who play with fire. 

Since there is report that Shahul may be a PAS member, I ask that PAS let the public know if the report is true. 

If he is indeed a PAS member, then PAS must immediately expel him from the Party.
