Nik Aziz: Shameful act to step on pictures of national leaders.
KOTA BARU: PAS spiritual leader and Kelantan Mentri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat has described the action of a few people who stepped on the pictures of the nation's leaders on the eve of the Independence Day celebration in Kuala Lumpur as a very shameful and saddening act.
He said the act did not reflect the culture of Malays and Muslims.
“This is not the work of Malays and Muslims. They are neither Malays nor Muslims.
“This is very shameful and saddening, the photograph that I saw was not of a Malay (the perpetrators of the act).
"We Muslims are taught not to disturb others. If others do it to us, we will get angry,” he told reporters when attending an Aidilfitri gathering on Sunday.
He was commenting on the rude actions of a number of participants of the “Janji Bersih” illegal assembly held in Dataran Merdeka in the Federal Capital on the eve of Independence Day Aug 30.
They had stepped on the pictures of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor at the protest gathering.
Nik Aziz also did not agree with the action of the participants of changing the Malaysian flag with a new flag which was red and white, colours akin to the Singaporean flag.
“It not easy to replace (the national flag), have to discuss for years. What is our intention of changing the flag, our flag has already been accepted by the world, there is no need to smear to our flag,” he said. - Bernama
