Police nationwide on high alert, post-petrol bomb attack

All state police chiefs are on high alert as a result of the petrol bomb attack in Bidor yesterday on a KK Mart outlet.

“The Inspector-General of Police (Tan Sri Razarudin Husain) has personally ordered state police chiefs to heighten their vigilance regarding this matter and monitor all statements and actions related to the 3R issue within their respective jurisdictions,” Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department director Datuk Seri Mohd Shuhaily Mohd Zain said in a press conference today, reported Sin Chew Daily.

Shuhaily further warned that if certain groups aim to escalate the issue, they might not only target KK Mart but also create disturbances elsewhere, as a result, the police are taking a firm stance on this matter.

“I understand this involves Muslims, but let’s all be patient. It may seem like a simple response, but patience will solve many more problems.

“I urge everyone, regardless of race or religion, to think about our future generations. Our actions today have implications for them. Let’s not be selfish,” Shuhaily added, reported Malay Mail.

In a related development KK Supermart founder Datuk Seri Chai Kee Kan, his wife Datin Seri Loh Siew Mui was charged for hurting the religious sentiments of Muslims with the sale of controversial socks with Allah word. They have pled not guilty.

Socks supplier company Xin Jian Chang Sdn Bhd is also facing the brunt of the law.

KK Mart is also suing Xian Jian Chang.

The issue was further exacerbated when Umno Youth chief Dr Akmal Salleh called for boycotts against KK Mart nationwide.
