PETALING JAYA: Police will act against anyone who calls for non-Malays to be chased away from the country, Kuala Lumpur CID chief Senior Asst Comm Zainuddin Ahmad said.

He said those caught doing so would be arrested under the Sedition Act.

“We will not tolerate such incitement or indiscrimination against any race or religion. Offenders will face action under the Sedition Act,” he said.

He was commenting on a poster urging Muslims to gather at Dataran Merdeka in a bid to pressure the Government to chase away non-Malays from the country.

The poster also supported hudud law and called for it to be implemented nationwide.

“So far, we have not received any indication that such a demonstration will be held,” SAC Zainuddin said.

“No one should use the hudud issue as an excuse to hold an illegal rally,” he said, adding that the matter should be allowed to go through the legal democratic process at state and Parliament levels.

Meanwhile, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said police had started investigations over the poster.

“So far, the association has denied that it made the banner,” he told reporters yesterday.

“It said other parties are trying to tarnish its name. Whatever it is, we are still investigating,” he added.
