Now healthcare shop in JB rebuked for Malay-only policy

November 11, 2017

 

Political figures from Pakatan Harapan and Barisan Nasional want incidences of racial segregation curbed by adding anti-discrimination rule in business licence.
.

PETALING JAYA: Politicians from both sides of the divide have denounced a move by a shop owner in Johor Bahru for setting up a Malay-only customer policy for his business which sells Japanese healthcare products.

The operator of the outlet in Larkin Perdana Park had reportedly claimed that the reason for the policy was that the attendants there were able to speak only in Malay.

The controversy of the policy comes in the wake of two laundry operators in Johor and Perlis that had imposed a Muslim-only policy before they were rebuked by the royalty in both states over the past two months.

Pakatan Harapan (PH) chief secretary Saifuddin Abdullah said enforcing measures to segregate people based on language and ethnicity would only serve to widen the gap between the various races.

“Recently there have been many concerns about tolerance among the races due to the issues that have cropped up in the country,” he said.

“It is better that the thinking, as shown in the policy imposed by the Japanese store in Johor Bahru, be curbed before things become more serious,” he added.
.

DAP’s Zaid Ibrahim criticised the rule, saying that the local authorities should take action against the operator.

“This is ridiculous. How can this be? I hope the local authorities do something about this,” the former law minister told FMT.

He said there should be a law to disallow people who want to run businesses from enforcing such prejudice-based policies.

“If you want to run a business, you need a licence. Set the rule there. Don’t allow discrimination,’ Zaid said, adding that “this kind of a thing” needs to be curbed before it spreads.

Meanwhile, MCA spokesman Ti Lian Ker said the deteriorating state of harmony among Malaysians of different races was worrying.

“Somehow along the way we are slowly losing our ability to live together as Malaysians, and co-exist in harmony, unity and stability,” he said.

“Race, culture, and religion are being exploited. This trend is dangerous and tearing the nation apart,” he said.

Johor Baru shop says only Malaysian Malays allowed to enter: Report

(Updated: )
.

zzzsssh

JOHOR BARU: A shop in Larkin Perdana, Johor Baru has sparked controversy after it posted notices at its entrance saying that only Malaysian nationals who are ethnic Malays are allowed to enter, according to a report by China Press.

The Malaysian Chinese-language newspaper reported that the shop, which sells Japanese healthcare and home products, also said in its notices that it only uses Bahasa Malaysia to conduct its “promotional activities”.

The name of the shop was not disclosed in the report.

According to China Press, notices in both Malay and Chinese were pasted outside the shop with the Malay notice saying: “Please be informed that we will only use Bahasa Melayu for all promotional activities. Only Malaysians who are MALAY are allowed in. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.”

Meanwhile, the Chinese notice read: “Chinese customers are encouraged to get the location for outlets that cater to the Chinese from the store manager and visit the location.”

The manager of the outlet told China Press that the company, which has a strong Chinese customer base, is trying to expand its market base to include more Malays and Indians.

Hence, it has set up outlets in Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur and Johor that only use Bahasa Malaysia to communicate.

The shop manager was quoted by China Press as saying that the company does not practice “racial discrimination” because they have other outlets in Johor and other states that are specifically for Chinese.

While admitting that she is worried about opening such a shop located in Larkin, a Malay majority neighbourhood, she reportedly said that it was just the company’s marketing strategy and was not meant to alienate Chinese customers.

Video: Zamihan Mat Zin, “For me, PM’s actions is (sic) not intelligent…”


He can’t do any wrong?

11 November 2017

In Cheras today, Inspector-General of Police Mohamad Fuzi Harun said police had completed their investigation into Zamihan for sedition over his criticism of the Johor sultan and handed the papers to the Attorney-General’s Chambers.

“We are waiting for follow-up action,” he said.

https://www.themalaysianinsight.com/s/22386/

“For me, PM’s actions is (sic) not intelligent. Is it because we have borrowed money from them and taken their funds and obtained assistance with the MoU on the haj quota that we have decided to give them the land?

“Do they want to take action against me as a civil servant? Please go ahead…”

Video emerges of Zamihan criticising the PM


Chan Kok Leong

A VIDEO clip has emerged of controversial preacher Zamihan Mat Zin calling Prime Minister Najib Razak “unintelligent” for giving a 16ha piece of land to Saudi Arabia.

In an undated video on YouTube , Zamihan said Putrajaya’s decision in July to allot land in the administrative capital for the King Salman Centre for International Peace to combat terrorism was unrealistic.

“Yesterday, the PM announced that we will build the King Salman Centre for International Peace in Putrajaya and that the government will allot 16ha or 40 acres of land for it.

“The proposal to give land to Saudi to fight terrorism is not realistic. And it is okay if Saudi doesn’t come to Malaysia to counter terrorism. We already have the police, the Home Ministry, Prisons Department and other security institutions like the National Security Council,” said Zamihan, who got into trouble last month after a video of him criticising the Johor sultan went viral.

“These should be enough. Why do we need to rely on Saudis to fight Daesh (Islamic State)? Saudis are the ones who gave birth to Daesh,” said Zamihan in the two-minute video, which was uploaded on October 23 and which has received 65,000 views.

Third time unlucky for Subang Jaya council officer doing his job
.

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 9 ― Third time was not the charm for Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) assistant enforcement officer Nor Safuan Nordin who was nearly blinded after being assaulted while on duty.

In the latest incident two days ago, Nor Safuan was sprayed in the face with an unknown substance by the driver of a car he had just clamped in Bandar Puteri Puchong, Selangor, Malay daily Harian Metro reported today.

“I couldn’t breathe and was nauseous immediately after being sprayed with that strange liquid.

“This time, I was attacked until nearly blind,” he was quoted saying.

The 31-year-old was previously roughed up by a popular comedian and threatened by a woman with a steering wheel lock while clamping illegally parked cars.

However, the police have caught his latest attacker. According to Harian Metro, the 50-year-old man was arrested at 10.30pm in Bandar Kinrara Section 5 and remanded today.

Arrested: Man who sprayed MPSJ enforcement officer with unidentified liquid

SERDANG: The man who had allegedly sprayed an unidentified liquid, believed to be corrosive in nature, at a Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) enforcement officer on Wednesday was arrested less than 12 hours after the incident.

District police chief Assistant Commissioner Megat Mohamad Aminuddin Megat Alias said a Criminal Investigation Department team arrested the man in Jalan Persiaran BK5, Bandar Kirara, at 10.30pm that day.

“Following interrogation, the 50-year-old man had admitted that he was involved in the case. He had also admitted to have thrown away the spray (bottle) he used,” he said.

Megat Aminuddin said police were still trying to ascertain what liquid was used in the attack.

The enforcement officer and a colleague were on duty in Bandar Puteri in Puchong when he spotted a white Honda City parked illegally in front of a restaurant in Jalan Puteri 1/4 about 12.40pm.

While they were clamping one of the vehicle’s wheels, the man and his wife burst onto the scene, berating the officer and acting aggressively.

In the midst of the haranguing, the man sprayed an unidentified liquid in the officer’s face before he and his wife fled.

Harian Metro reported that the officer, 31-year-old Nor Safuan Nordin, said he was lucky as the liquid did not directly hit his eyes as he had his sunglasses on.

“It was not the first time I was assaulted while carrying out enforcement duty. Previously, I was roughed up by a famous comedian and earlier this year I was threatened by a woman with a steering wheel lock while clamping illegally parked cars.

“This time, I am attacked until I am nearly blind,” he said, adding the stinging sensation lasted for about 15 minutes.

He said his vision became blurry and he also experienced difficulty breathing.

KUALA LUMPUR: A Subang Jaya municipal council (MPSJ) enforcement officer was sprayed in the face with an unidentified corrosive liquid by a man incensed that his illegally-parked car had been clamped.

In the 12.40pm incident on Wednesday, the officer had spotted a white Honda City parked outside of a designated lot in front of a restaurant at Jalan Puteri 1/4 in Bandar Puteri, Puchong.

While the officer and his colleague were clamping one of the vehicle’s wheels, the car’s owner and his wife burst onto the scene, berating the officer and acting aggressively.

In the midst of the harangue, the man sprayed an unidentified liquid in the officer’s face before he and his wife fled.

“The officer felt irritation in his eyes. His vision became blurry. And he had difficulty breathing,” Serdang police chief Assistant Commissioner Megat Mohamad Aminuddin Megat Alias said in a statement.

The couple is still at large.

KUALA LUMPUR: A man who allegedly kicked a woman on the pedestrian bridge, linking Bank Negara Malaysia to Jalan Raja Laut, was arrested last night after the video went viral.

The 34-year-old suspect was arrested in front of Masjid Saidina Hamzah in Kampung Batu Muda, Jalan Ipoh here, at 11.05pm.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Mazlan Lazim said investigations found that the suspect was arrested last year for committing a similar offence.

“The suspect does not have any mental problems but has a bad temper.

“He has criminal records such as making threats, arson and causing hurt,” he told reporters at a press conference in Cheras here today.

The case is being investigated under Section 325 of the Penal Code for causing hurt.

Police hunting for man who assaulted woman on pedestrian bridge

  • Wednesday, 8 Nov 2017

By jo timbuong

KUALA LUMPUR: A man who was charged with assaulting women on a pedestrian bridge near the Bank Negara Malaysia building here may be back to his old antics.

The issue resurfaced when a viral video showed the suspect kicking a woman down a flight of stairs on the bridge near an LRT station before nonchalantly walking away from the scene at around 1.30pm on Monday (Nov 6).

The 34-year-old victim appeared to be shocked by the attack and suffered backaches from the fall.

She later lodged a report at the Dang Wangi police station.

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Shaharuddin Abdullah said police believe that the same suspect could have been behind similar incidents there in the past.

G25: ‘Extremist’ Zamihan may lead militants down wrong path
.

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 12 — G25 expressed concern today that preacher Zamihan Mat Zin, a civil servant in charge of rehabilitating militant detainees, may influence terrorists to advocate for an Islamic state in Malaysia.

The group of retired senior civil servants also said Zamihan’s employment was disrespectful towards the Johor and Selangor Sultans, who had both criticised the Home Ministry officer over his remarks defending a Muslim-only laundromat in Johor.

“We hope that the Ministry is not employing Zamihan in the belief that it takes a thief to catch a thief,” G25 said in a statement.

“With his background, there is a risk that Zamihan may influence the detainees into the wrong path.

“Instead of rehabilitating them to understand the multicultural diversity of the country and the need for Malaysians to show tolerance for our differences, commitment to ‘Wasatiyyah’ (the middle path/ moderation), and to respect the Federal Constitution, the rule of law and the Rukun Negara, he may use religion to advocate for an Islamic state in Malaysia,” it added.

‘Zahid, how can Zamihan be trusted to deradicalise terrorists?’

Published:     Modified:

YOURSAY | ‘The preacher’s actions so far point to someone who will inculcate the opposite of inclusiveness.’

DPM: Zamihan is an asset, deradicalisation expert

RR: Very sad that this statement of accreditation of preacher Zamihan Mat Zin’s deradicalisation
of terrorists comes from the Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi who is in charge of the country’s internal security, besides being the deputy prime minister.

Both the rulers of Selangor and Johor have been wronged by the DPM’s statement. Is the country so short of good Islamic teachers to rehabilitate hardcore terrorists?

Alfanso: Zahid, we are very concerned about your preference for people like preacher Zakir Naik and Zamihan. Why do you vouch for people like that when there so many good souls around who you fail to give support to?

My question would be, does Zamihan hold any degree or qualifications related to deradicalisation, or is it merely by holding a religious qualification and speaking in other languages which qualifies him as an expert for rehabilitation of terrorists? How naive can the DPM be?

Zamihan in charge of ‘deradicalisation’, but Sapno denied PR

Published:     Modified:

COMMENT | We recently learned two things.

First, that controversial preacher Zamihan Mat Zin will have his services retained by the federal government, ostensibly as an expert in rehabilitating terrorists.

Second, that a surau bilal in Penang, Sapno Tukijo has been applying for permanent residency in Malaysia for some 23 years without success.

I suppose this contrast is quite a microcosm of the Malaysia we seem to find ourselves in today.

Zamihan shot to fame for vociferously defending the owner of a launderette in Johor who wanted to open his facilities to Muslims only.

The Sultan of Johor took strong exception to Zamihan’s views, as did the Sultan of Selangor, who barred him from preaching in Selangor.

As it happens, Zamihan also commented directly on Sapno’s famous decision as bilal of the Taman Free School surau to grant refuge to victims of the recent Penang floods in said surau.

Zamihan stated that the floods could not be categorised as an emergency situation, that other avenues existed for the victims, and that the surau authorities should have reminded those taking refuge in the surau to observe proper courtesies and guidelines.
.
zzdap

There is some irony in Zamihan’s (photo) credentials as a “de-terroriser”, which are now being touted by our very own deputy prime minister.

Historically, we have seen many terrorists profess the same type of views and attitudes as Zamihan himself.

Surely the many parallels in terms of xenophobia and intolerance are not hard to see.

Terrorism is in essence born out of hate, and how can a radical man so full of hate and “us versus them” thinking possibly deradicalise others?

A man, no less, who has been publicly denounced by not one, but two heads of religion, who have made known in no uncertain terms that Zamihan is not welcome in their states.

We might not be surprised to find terrorists becoming more, and not less, radicalised after spending time with Zamihan, who the government seems dead set on protecting.
.

NATHANIEL TAN is deeply impressed that the Taman Free School surau even opened its doors to dogs in times of need. Perhaps the rest of us could learn a few pointers about treating strays well.

The views expressed here are those of the author/contributor and do not necessarily represent the views of Malaysiakini.

Why is extremist preacher still carrying out militant rehabilitation programme, asks PKR


 

zzzami.jpg

PKR has questioned why Putrajaya has allowed controversial preacher Zamihan Mat Zin, who has been banned from lecturing in Selangor and Johor, to conduct rehabilitation programmes on detained IS militants.

PKR Supreme Council member Latheefa Koya., who is also a lawyer, said Zamihan’s extremist views, such as on the Muslim-only launderette and criticising a bilal in Penang for allowing non-Muslim flood victims to take refuge, were well-known.

“How does a preacher who is banned from speaking in Selangor and Johor, and caused so much controversy is still being given access to IS detainees?

“I urge Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to re-evaluate the role of Zamihan at the prison immediately, especially with IS-related detainees,” she said in a statement today.

Latheefa said it was shocking that after the numerous controversies, Putrajaya still allowed Zamihan access to the “most extreme” groups of detainees who were sympathetic to IS’ struggle.

Two days ago, Zamihan recounted in a Facebook post his experience of conducting a programme with militant detainees in Tapah, Perak.

Just like poor Lee Shi Ni Michelle, she honestly thought that she had received an email from the government body, Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri (LHDN).

LHDN is basically the government sector which handles taxes and Malaysians usually go through this government sector for our income tax.
.
In a heartbreaking Facebook post she wrote on November 1, 2017, Michelle shares how an e-mail caused her to instantly lose all the money in her bank account.
.
She said, “I received this email from Encik Fadzli Bin Abdul Wahit <phillir1@gvsu.edu> on Monday and yesterday, I clicked in to check it out.”

Turns out, many people, including us at WOB have received this email!

“After clicking the blue proceed button, I was linked to a page with logos of all the banks, telling me to select my bank and follow the instructions given.
.
“After I selected CIMB bank, I was directed to CIMBclicks.”
Oh no, girl… that should have been a massive red light already!

“I keyed in my username and password and was then asked to type in the TAC code.
.
“A few minutes later, I received an SMS from CIMB saying that almost ALL my money in the bank account was transferred out to a person whom I DON’T EVEN KNOW!”
.
So, the next time you see such emails, it is best to be careful and avoid clicking on any weird links, especially if you’re unsure what it is.

There’s also a similar e-mail from the same person that’s being sent out, but instead of asking you to click into a link, you have to download a file. PS: Don’t do it.

Malaysia arrests man who dressed as suicide bomber for Halloween
(Updated: )

KUALA LUMPUR: Police in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia on Tuesday (Nov 7) arrested a man who dressed up in a “suicide bomber” outfit for a Halloween party.

The man, in his thirties, had worn the outfit to a party at a condominium in Damansara Perdana on Oct 28.

A police handout showed him dressed in white with a fake beard and a chequered towel wrapped around his head. A fake “circuit bomb” made out of cardboard, an “antenna” and plastic bottles were taped round his waist.

Petaling Jaya police chief ACP Mohd Zani Che Din said a resident at the condominium encountered the man in the lift and informed the police.

“At about 7.40pm, residents at an apartment in Damansara Perdana came across the man who was dressed as a suicide bomber,” ACP Mohd Zani said, according to the Star Online. “It was for a Halloween party and he was spotted riding the lift.”

Such attire is a sensitive issue to the general public, following recent incidents linked to the Islamic State, the New Straits Times reported the police chief as saying.

Amid floods, MP speaks of slights against religion and karma

Published:     Modified:

Padang Besar MP Zahidi Zainul Abidin, when debating the Budget 2018 speech in Parliament today, expressed sadness over the devastating floods in the northwestern peninsula, and went on to raise the possibility of karma.

“We need to remember, the floods happened because of the inappropriate logging on hills in Penang and inappropriate development management.

“And don’t forget, sometimes when we do things that are not right, among them pitting religions against each other, insulting religion, organising festivals that stray far from another’s religion and causing anger, then surely karma will come and the people will suffer,” said the Umno lawmaker.

Gerakan Youth says floods may be due to over-development, wants moratorium

Published:     Modified:

Over-development in Penang in recent years could be the main reason for constant flash floods in the state, said Gerakan Youth deputy chief Andy Yong.

He noted how numerous areas, once pristine and serene, have become massive construction projects without taking into consideration the impact on the locals and the environment.

He also said that far-fetched justifications after the tragedy are pointless as Penangnites need preventative measures and assurances now.

Yong said this weekend’s flooding, which claimed seven lives, proved that Penang is facing a serious problem in terms of environment preservation and sustainability.

He said that based on his recent visit to the northern state, the severity and destruction of the flood are unprecedented.

“Such frequent floods where the waters are brown in areas like Tanjung Bungah prove that hillslope erosion is becoming more aggravated.

“Recent floods and landslides in the last few months have served as a warning. The Penang state government must take serious action.

A Malaysian Mystery: How do incomplete/unoccupied army camps have registered voters?

Johor DAP files 1,051 objections on army voters in Segamat

Published:     Modified:

Mengkibol assemblyperson Tan Hong Pin said today that objections have been filed against all 1,051 army voters found to be transferred to the Segamat camp, which is still under construction.

Speaking during a press conference at electoral reform coalition Bersih’s office in Petaling Jaya, Tan said funds were raised to cover the objection costs of names found in the 2017 third quarter Supplementary Electoral Roll (RDPT), which was put on display from Oct 25 to Nov 6.

“Yesterday, we had submitted the objections. We collected RM10,000 to pay for the objections.

“We are worried that if the objections are rejected, there’s a high risk that we have to pay over RM200,000, (but) that’s a consequence that we must face,” Tan, who is also Johor DAP Youth chief, said.

Any individual who wishes to register an objection with the EC will have to pay RM10 and if the objection is rejected, an additional cost of up to RM200 can be imposed.

While the Segamat camp was initially targeted for completion in April next year, Tan further said that DAP stalwart Lim Kit Siang, during his visit to the construction site last Friday, discovered the sign which displayed the work completion date had “gone missing”.

“So now we don’t know whether it will be completed tomorrow or next year,” he pointed out, although adding there is no justification to register new voters in the current third quarter’s electoral roll.

More army voters in camps under construction, claims Bersih

Published:     Modified:

Electoral reform coalition Bersih said today that it has discovered more new army voters are being transferred into two camps in Bera, Pahang, and Hutan Melintang, Perak, which are still under construction.

Bersih deputy chairperson Shahrul Aman Mohd Shaari said the discovery was made following a similar revelation by Johor DAP last week of army voters being transferred into the yet to be completed Segamat camp in Johor.

In reference to the 2017 third quarter Supplementary Electoral Roll (RDPT), Shahrul said 1,234 new army voters were found to be registered in the Bera parliamentary seat held by Rural and Regional Development Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob, while another 1,411 new army voters have been registered in Hutan Melintang, a state seat under the Bagan Datoh parliamentary constituency held by Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

“Our analysis showed that these transfers happened in seats won (by BN) with a slim majority in the last 13th general election.

“In particular, these three seats were won by ministers,” said Shahrul Aman during a press conference at Bersih’s office in Petaling Jaya.

The Segamat seat is currently held by Health Minister Dr S Subramaniam, who won it with a 1,217 majority against former health minister Chua Jui Meng from PKR.

Ismail won in Bera with a majority of 2,143 votes against PKR’s Zakaria Abdul Hamid, while Zahid defended his Bagan Datoh seat for the fifth term, with a 2,108 majority against PKR’s Madhi Hasan.

“This clearly shows that the transfers were politically motivated and intended to influence the outcome of the elections through early or postal votes,” Shahrul claimed.

Bersih discovers 2 incomplete army camps with registered voters

zzzbb

PETALING JAYA: Free and fair elections watchdog Bersih 2.0 claims to have discovered two army camps with a total of 2,645 voters although they are still under construction.

Its chairperson Maria Chin said the names were discovered by Bersih’s ground teams during the display of the 3rd quarter draft of the Supplementary Electoral Roll of 2017.

“It is unconstitutional as the voters need to be living in the area in order to cast ballots there. These camps are still under construction,” she said during a press conference at Bersih 2.0 office here today.

The two army camps claimed by Bersih to be still under construction are Bera Camp in Pahang and Hutan Melintang Camp in Perak.

The present Bera MP is Rural and Regional Development Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob who won by a 2,143-vote majority against PKR’s Zakaria Abdul Hamid in 2013.

The Hutan Melintang camp is located within the Bagan Datuk parliamentary constituency whose MP is Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Zahid won the seat with a majority of 2,108 votes against PKR’s Madhi Hasan in 2013.

Several days ago, DAP had claimed the Segamat army camp, which is also under construction, has 1,079 newly registered army voters.

The Segamat parliamentary seat is held by MIC president S Subramaniam, who won it by a majority of 1,217 votes against PKR’s Chua Jui Meng in 2013.

Maria asked the Election Commission (EC) whether the voters in the three constituencies were told their names had been transferred there.

Bersih steering committee member Rama Ramanathan claimed the army voters were moved to the three new camps to ensure the survival of the three ministers if they stood for re-election.

November 6, 2017

Group comprising army and police veterans warns 3 new army camps may also have new voters registered there, like what happened at the yet-to-be-completed Segamat camp.

PETALING JAYA: Will there be a shift of army voters to the three other new army bases currently being built as well, the Persatuan Patriot Kebangsaan (Patriot) questioned today.

Patriot, which comprises army and police veterans, was referring to the Segamat army base which is scheduled to be completed in April 2018 but reportedly already has 1,051 military personnel registered to vote in that area.

Patriot president Brigadier-General (Rtd) Mohd Arshad Raji said it is possible that a similar game plan would be used for the new army bases in Bera, Paloh and Hutan Melintang.

“We are unsure if it is true that there are new camps being built there and if a shift of army voters has already been done.

“This issue should be put forth to the defence minister and the deputy defence minister,” Arshad said during a press conference here today.

He added that the Election Commision (EC) should also probe further into this issue.

PKR MP dares Husni to repeat sodomy remark

Published:     Modified:

Former Second Finance Minister Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah has been challenged to repeat his allegations against jailed opposition figure Anwar Ibrahim outside the Dewan Rakyat.

Sungai Petani MP Johari Abdul said Husni had to do so because Anwar was not able to defend himself in the Dewan Rakyat when the allegation was made last Wednesday.

At the time, according to the Hansard, Husni had criticised several opposition leaders after praising Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak by claiming that the latter was poised to leave a “zero corruption” legacy.

At one point, Husni accused Anwar of being a sodomite and said: “Sodomy. He was involved with my anak buah“.

“We are brought in tears [sic]. I went to Jordan. I read the scriptures. If people are involved in sodomy, God will cruse them and the whole population will suffer like in Sodom, Jordan,” said Husni, according to to the Hansard.

Husni did not explain what he meant by “anak buah“, which could mean “subordinate”, “nephew” or “niece” in Bahasa Malaysia.

He eventually stopped talking about Anwar after he was told off by the speaker, but not before naming a particular person.

“Everybody in UKM knows,” said Husni, according to the Hansard.
