KUALA LUMPUR: No government ministry or agency has ordered the spread of SMSes with political sentiments, says Fahmi Fadzil.

The Communications and Digital Minister said, in a post on his Twitter account Saturday (Aug 5), that the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has checked with all telecommunications companies about the matter.

“The Malaysian Youth Council (MBM) has also issued a denial and confirmed that the SMS did not originate from MBM,” he said in his post.

MBM president Mohd Izzat Afifi Abdul Hamid also stated in a media statement Saturday that the provocative and seditious SMS was not from the MBM or any youth association affiliated with the council.

“MBM will take further action and a police report will be lodged soon to avoid any misuse of MBM’s name with such irresponsible actions.

“We urge all political parties that are contesting in the state elections to always campaign maturely and in a healthy manner and avoid doing things that are against the country’s laws,” he added.

A Twitter user had sought an explanation from Fahmi earlier regarding the spread of the SMS that used the name "Belia Malaysia". - Bernama
