Najib condemns 'Umno celaka' remark, urges party members not to overreact

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has condemned the "Umno celaka" remark made by a DAP assemblyman, but urged Umno members not to overreact over the issue.

"I strictly condemn the derogatory remarks made by a DAP member, totally unbecoming. We may differ in our political opinion but being abusive is uncalled for.

"This type of action incites disharmony as after all, we are all Malaysians," he said in a statement published on his official Facebook page early Saturday.

Najib is currently away on a three-day official visit to Kazakhstan.

However, Najib, who is also Umno president, urged party members to avoid tarnishing the party's good name.

"At the same time, I call upon all Umno members not to overreact by doing things against the law or deemed to be irresponsible.

"Any reaction should be within the bounds of the law and we must strive to continue the good image of our party. Jaga nama baik parti kita (please honour our party's good name)," he said.

The "Umno celaka" remark uttered by Penang DAP's Seri Delima representative R.S.N. Rayer in the state assembly earlier in the week has sparked anger among Umno members, who have staged a series of protests in Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Kuantan over Rayer's refusal to apologise.

Bapak Presiden telah keluarkan fatwa di atas cercaan babi hitam DAP terhadap bangsa Melayu UMNO.

Bapak Presiden bilang jangan over react tetapi boleh react. Ayuh bangsa Melayu Nusantara, kita bertindak hapuskan babi hitam DAP seekor ini dari bumi Melayu Nusantara.

Bapak2 Melayu bacul dari DAP, PAS dan PKR tolong jangan ganggu urusan menghapuskan binatang haram ini.

Allahu Akbar.
