PETALING JAYA: As the nation mourns the passing of fireman Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail has called for calm, assuring that the perpetrators will not go unpunished. 

Muhammad Adib, 24, succumbed to his injuries after being allegedly attacked by a mob during last month’s Seafield Sri Maha Mariamman Temple riots.  

He passed away at 9.41pm at the National Heart Institute (IJN) on Monday (Dec 17).

Calling Muhammad Adib, a true hero, Dr Wan Azizah said it is important for all Malaysians to stand together in solidarity against the crime. 

"We must remember it was not a religious or racial crime but a criminal act committed by heartless human beings," she said. 

While the heinous crime has saddened the country, she advised Malaysians not to behave rashly and let the process of law run its course. 

"Rest assured this crime will not go unpunished," she said.  

Dr Wan Azizah expressed her condolences to the family of Muhammad Adib.
