PETALING JAYA: Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar wants Malaysians to learn from the shooting at weekly Charlie Hebdo in Paris which killed 12 people.

He said the incident showed that the Sedition Act 1948 should be retained to prevent such attacks from occurring in Malaysia.

"Ambil lah ikhtibar kejadian di Paris. Itu lah sebab nya kita memerlukan Akta Hasutan dan @PDRMsia tidak akan membiarkan penghasut agama (Take heed of the Paris incident. That is why we need the Sedition Act and police will not let off those who insult religions)," he said on Twitter.

"Paris attack – Laws like the Sedition Act will surely help @PDRMsia nip the problem in the bud before it escalates. Think bef saying," he said.

In another message, Khalid warned those making comments to think carefully of what they want to say.

"Hati2 lah dalam memperkata kan sesuatu. Jgn 'berkata kata' yg akan mengundang @PDRMsia mengambil tindakan. Berani cakap berani lah tanggung (Be careful when saying something. Don't "talk" that can invite police to take action. If you are brave to "talk" be brave to face responsibility)," he said.
