PETALING JAYA: Anyone who wants to practise racism and hatred in Johor should leave the state, said Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar.
Posting on his Facebook page, the Ruler said hate and racism had no place in the state.
“If anyone wants to practise racism and hatred in Johor, please leave immediately. This is an order!” the Sultan wrote on Malaysia Day.
“Anyone who creates disharmony and spread hatred here by promoting racism will have to deal with me personally,” he warned.
Sultan Ibrahim also urged authorities not to be biased but to take harsh measures against those promoting racism and creating racial disharmony in the state.
“Anyone found instigating others to hate and practise racism here in Johor, they will face the brunt of the law,” he said, calling for these people to be apprehended.
Referring to Malays, Chinese and Indians in the state as “Bangsa Johor”, the Sultan reminded the public that all races had played their part in building the state.
“As their Ruler, it’s my responsibility to see my subjects live in harmony and my subjects are always my priority,” he said.
He reminded everyone that his ancestors, the state government and his subjects had “worked hand-in-hand” to make Johor a better place.
