KUALA LUMPUR: A group of Malay NGOs held a protest over the Chinese New Year greeting video of Seputeh MP Teresa Kok.

Pewaris secretariat member Zulkifli Sharif said the protest was held to slam chauvinistic leaders who were using current issues to run down Malay leaders and fan hatred against them.

The group of 50 were from Pewaris, Pekida and other bodies. They had gathered along Jalan Tun Perak in front of Menara Maybank at 2pm with banners, offering "RM500 reward" to anyone who would slap Kok and show proof of it.

The protest took a macabre turn when four chickens were slaughtered and their blood smeared on a poster with faces of Kok, Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang, Machang Bubuk MP Lee Khai Loon.

The group also gave out bunches of kangkung.

On Wednesday, Kok lodged a police report about alleged threats made against her over the controversial Onederful Malaysia CNY 2014 video clip.

In the video clip that Kok allegedly uploaded on YouTube on Jan 27, she acted as a feng shui talk show host and had “panellists” poke fun at various national issues, including the education system, rising cost of living, public safety and the foreign intrusion into Sabah in February last year.
