Read Story In Detail

Saifuddin Nasution Ismail, has expressed strong disapproval of Perikatan Nasional’s decision to hold the “Save Malaysia” rally on Malaysia Day, characterizing it as a blatant display of disrespect towards the values of unity, tolerance, and love for the people. According to Saifuddin Nasution Ismail, the organizers had the flexibility to choose any other date for their event but opted for September 16th, a choice he deemed inappropriate.

He emphasized that Malaysia Day is traditionally a day of celebration and holds immense historical significance as the formation day of Malaysia. Holding a rally on this date, he argued, demonstrates a disregard for the values of tolerance, unity, and respect for the law.

Saifuddin Nasution Ismail shared his experiences of participating in street demonstrations during his three decades in politics, highlighting that, in those earlier days, such rallies were subject to the Police Act. With the introduction of the Peaceful Assembly Act in 2012, specific rules were established, including restrictions on holding gatherings near places of worship, petrol stations, or electricity substations.

“The police have made their stance clear; we abide by the law,” Saifuddin affirmed.

Regarding the case of a Malaysian student’s arrest on suspicion of espionage in Norway, the Home Minister stated that he had been briefed by the Inspector-General of Police, and they were awaiting a complete report from Norwegian authorities. Currently, they have been informed of the suspect’s status, background, and certain evidence obtained.
