Serious concern: Sivarrajh speaking to reports before meeting DCP Thaiveegan.
GEORGE TOWN: MIC Youth wants Islamic preacher sstaz Shahul Hamid Seeni Muhammad to be taken to court for insulting Hinduism although he has apologised for his remarks.
The party’s Youth chief C. Sivarrajh said the party accepted the apology from the PAS ustaz but the legal process against him should continue.
“We will monitor the case closely,” he said.
“We want the case to be a lesson to all Malaysians on making sensitive religious remarks. As a multi-racial and religious country, we must uphold the 1Malaysia spirit,” he told reporters before meeting Penang deputy police chief DCP Datuk A. Thaiveegan yesterday.
A video clip of the speech, alleged to have made during a ceramah in Shah Alam five years ago went viral, resulting in a slew of police reports made against him.
In the video, he is seen telling Muslims not to buy products from what he deemed as “Hindu” curry powder companies like Baba’s and Alagappa’s.
Sivarrajh was accompanied by national MIC Youth secretary
K. Arvind, MIC central working committee member J. Dhinagaran and Youth committee members.
DCP Thaiveegan said 97 reports were lodged against Shahul Hamid in the state.
“We have already recorded a statement from Shahul Hamid, and all the police reports and statements will be sent to the Selangor police headquarters in Shah Alam,” he said at a separate press conference.
DCP Thaiveegan said the case was being investigated under Section 4(1)(c) of the Sedition Act 1948 and Section 233(1) of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.
“Selangor police will refer the case to the Attorney-General.”
