TANGKAK: Some 14 non-governmental organisations (NGOs) here have lodged police reports against Janji Bersih gathering organisers in Kuala Lumpur for allowing some participants to step on the pictures of national leaders.
The gathering, which also showed some participants waving the Sang Saka Malaya flags, had also angered many people from the various races in Ledang.
The group’s representative Huzahim Zaaba said it was a shameful act and rude for the participants to step on the pictures of the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and wife Datin Seri Rosnah Mansor.
We urge the police to act against those who were involved in organising the gathering as well as those who stepped on the pictures.
We also want the police to detain those who waved the Sang Saka Malaya flags as they had clearly showed their plans to change the national flag, he said after the group lodged reports at the Ledang police station recently.
Huzahim, who is also the Muar Ex-Policemen Association deputy chairman, said among the NGOs involved are Ledang Silat Sendeng Association, Ledang 4B Youth Movement, Ledang Ex-Army Association, Ledang Perkasa and the Ledang Youth Council.
He said the Home Ministry should be stern in such matters as the incidents had triggered anger among the people and affected the pride of the nation.
