DAP chief want NSC to act on terror against KK Mart

National DAP chairman Lim Guan Eng wants Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to convene an urgent National Security Council (NSC) meeting.

This in view of the third Molotov cocktail attack last night that happened in Sarawak.

“The Prime Minister should summon an emergency National Security Council (NSC) meeting to discuss this situation and adopt urgent measures to prevent any escalation that would jeopardise peace and harmony in our multi-ethnic and multi-religious society,” he said.

He also took Umno to task for not reigning over its youth Dr Akmal Saleh who has been instigating a nation wide boycott against KK Mart outlets.

“Clearly no place is now safe in Malaysia from attacks on KK Super Mart outlets.

“Since Umno’s national leadership has decided to back the party’s Youth chief Dr Muhamad Akmal Saleh in his continued boycott of the outlets, the federal government must step in to prevent any fueling of anger from spiralling dangerously out of control,” he said.

“This is irresponsible and unbecoming of a Melaka government leader who is part of the unity government,” he added.

“Despite Akmal denying any political motivations and his condemnation of the KK Super Mart attacks, his boycott has not stopped the attacks on the convenience store chain,” he said.

Lim is very much concerned since Sarawak is known to be the most tolerant state that upholds unity in diversity.

He reminded the public that these attacks are continuing despite calls from Anwar, Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Ibrahim and Perak Ruler Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah’s royal rebuke.

“The King has called on all parties to stop taking advantage of the issue, saying it should now be left to the authorities. The King commanded that he had already ordered actions to be taken, so there was no need to keep fueling anger,” the statement said.

The NSC, also called MKN, is joint a federal agency under the Prime Minister’s Department, offering advice to both federal and state governments on national security and the safety of Malaysians.

A total of 3 KK Marts have been attacked since the controversy regarding the socks with Allah word erupted.
