KEPALA BATAS, July 8 — Two NGOs today lodged four police reports against Taiping MP Nga Kor Ming of the DAP over what they claimed to be a Facebook post that insulted Aidilfitri.
The Malaysia Heritage Club (Keris) and Malaysian Association of Youth Clubs Penang made the reports at the police station here through Keris Secretary-General Azman Hassan and MAYC Penang Chairman Saiful Anuar.
Azman claimed that Nga’s Facebook post carried a caricature of children and guests receiving Aidilfitri ‘duit raya’ cash packets and likened it to bribery.
“Nga’s action is clearly an insult demeaning a noble deed at a time when Muslims are celebrating Aidilfitri,” he told reporters after lodging the reports at the police station.
He said it was hoped that the police would investigate the person who drew the caricature as well as the owner and administrator of the Facebook account.
Azman said Nga, as an elected representative, should have been more sensitive and not link the Aidilfitri celebration to political elements.
“We ask Nga to withdraw the post and make an open apology in the same Facebook account,” he said. — Bernama
