Kit Siang slams anti-DAP Facebook page

KUALA LUMPUR, May 26: DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang has condemned an anti-DAP Facebook page DAP Laknatullah (Allah damns DAP) for issuing a death threat to Selangor DAP leader Edry Faizal Eddy Yusof.

“A day had passed but such irresponsible post threatening death and bodily harm to Edry and the hate-and-damn-DAP Facebook page “DAP Laknatullah” are not only still available, there is a new post mocking Edry for lodging the police report.

“Imagine what would have happened if there is website entitled “Umno Laknatullah” (Allah damns Umno) carrying postings which were downright lies about Umno leaders as well as carrying deaths threats to Umno leaders, and there is a police report against them?” he questioned.

“There is no doubt that within an hour or so, the police and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) would have swung into action and the “Umno Laknatullah” site would have been taken down whether by those responsible for it or by the authorities concerned – and there would have been no new posting mocking the police report,” he said.

Lim also questioned why Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has not taken any action against the Facebook page.

“What does this incident indicate?

“Are those responsible for the “DAP Laknatullah” FB page and postings right that they enjoy powerful patronage and protection?

“DAP will never indulge in such irresponsible racial and religious politics of lies, hate and fear like “UMNO Laknatullah” website or FB pages, as it is such dissemination of hatred, distrust and animosities among races and religions which are the greatest threat to peace, harmony and progress not only in Malaysia but in the world,” he said.

Lim said Malaysians should not allow the country to slide towards greater intolerance and extremism because of racial and religious politics.

“Malaysians condemn the bombings and killings in Manchester, Mindanao and Jakarta but we must learn the lessons of these tragedies and horrors – we must not allow Malaysia to slide towards greater intolerance and extremism because of the racial and religious politics of lies, hate and fear,” he said.

Yesterday, Edry, who is Selangor DAP central committee member, lodged a police report over the death threats made against him on a hate-and-damn-DAP Facebook page.-TMT
