PM: Be reasonable, keep the peace

Posted: 30 Jan 2014 08:00 AM PST

PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has called on Malaysians to listen to the voice of reason and to each other's views so that everyone can continue to enjoy the racial harmony we have in the country.

The Prime Minister said that in Malaysia's cultural melting pot, one must also act sensibly, respect the rules of law and be sensitive towards other people's beliefs.

"We must uphold the unity and racial harmony that we have enjoyed so far," he said in his Chinese New Year message posted on his blog www.1malaysia.com.my.

"We owe it to the nation to reject any form of threat, violence or any other act of extremism that could strain the harmonious relationship enjoyed by the various races," he said.

Najib also expressed his appreciation to the Chinese community for their contributions towards nation-building since Independence.

He said the transformation programmes, which the Government had put in place, needed support from all walks of life, including the Chinese who were known for their entrepreneurial skills.

Najib said a host of initiatives were being undertaken to improve the people's livelihood, among them BR1M, KR1M and Ops Harga to mitigate the pinch of global inflationary forces.

"There are also ongoing consultative meetings and discussions that focus solely on addressing the issue of easing the rakyat's burden.

"(However), our efforts will go asunder without the people's support.

"Together, we must remain resilient in the face of economic challenges to sustain stability and progress for our future generation," said Najib.

His deputy Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, in his Chinese New Year message, also spoke about the need to maintain unity and harmony among multi-racial Malaysians, adding that the key to today's peace was tolerance.

He said that all communities, including the Chinese, would want Malaysia to achieve its aim of becoming a developed and high-income nation by 2020.

"Therefore, it is important for all races to maintain the unity and harmony that we have been enjoying thus far.

"We must all work hard together to build a 1Malaysia based on mutual trust," said Muhyiddin.

The Deputy Prime Minister said the fact that all races were free to embrace their beliefs proved that Malaysians were tolerant of each other.

"Malaysia will remain a peaceful nation if the people continue to be tolerant, understanding and respectful of each other."

Posted: 30 Jan 2014 08:00 AM PST

JOHOR BARU: It wasn't enough that he crashed his car into the little girl's bicycle, he forced her into his vehicle and made her perform oral sex on him.

A man described as "worse than an animal" raped the girl and brutally slashed the 10-year-old when she began to fight back.

State police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff said the suspect was a 28-year-old who was high on drugs when arrested.

"His actions are worse than that of an animal. This is what happens when people consume drugs. They became inhuman," he told a press conference at the state police headquarters here yesterday.

SDCP Mohd Mokhtar said the girl had been warded to the Sultanah Fa­­ti­­mah Specialist Hospital.

"She is in a stable condition but still very traumatised," he added.

The victim was cycling to a religious school two kilometres away from her house in Bakri, Muar, when the suspect spotted her at around 2pm on Tuesday.

He knocked her down with his car, then grabbed and forced her into the front passenger seat before speeding away.

A farmer, who was accompanying his daughter to the same religious school, heard the victim's scream and chased after the suspect's car on foot, but give up halfway.

It is learnt that the suspect drove to a nearby dumpsite where he raped the victim and forced her to perform oral sex on him in the car.

SDCP Mohd Mokhtar said that when the victim started resisting, the man became angry and knocked her head and started slashing her abdomen and private parts with a sharp weapon.

The farmer had by then informed the victim's parents who lodged a police report.

"They located the man's car at a petrol station along Jalan Bakri about 15 minutes later with the man and his bloodied victim still inside," said SDCP Mohd Mokhtar.
