NGO lodges reports against youths for insulting the King during rally

KUALA LUMPUR: A non-governmental organisation has lodged two reports against a group of youths who allegedly insulted the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and attacked the press during the anti-GST rally on May 1.

Martabat Jalinan Muhibbah Malaysia (MJMM) president Abdul Rani Kulup Abdullah said he saw a YouTube video, supposedly of Geng Kotak members, singing the national anthem during the rally in Dataran Merdeka and was offended when they insulted the King.

In the video, some 30 people danced around and lit flares while singing Negaraku, ending the anthem with chants that insulted the King. During the rally, the same youths were later seen involved in a brawl with PAS’ Unit Amal officers and members of the media.

“I had no problems with the protest. It was their right but I am offended by the acts of some of the protesters who were aggressive and insulted the King.

“I saw it for myself in the papers and on the Internet,” Abdul Rani said.

The MJMM was one of the NGOs whose members were seen in February slaughtering chickens and smearing blood on a banner showing Pakatan Rakyat leaders, while issuing a RM1,500 cash reward for whoever could slap DAP MP Teresa Kok.
