Loh Seng Kok has been the MCA MP warned by UMNO and PAS! for criticising our ‘imbalanced’ history textbooks, new prayer recital guidelines and the problems faced by non-Muslims with regards to places of worship, during a recent parliamentary session.
I blogged that after Loh finished his coverage of the other two issues, he was warned by both an UMNO and a PAS MP. He was told not to thread on ‘dangerous grounds’.
Well, that’s was not the end of the matter because 6 days later, a mob of 50 UMNO Youth members, led by Kelana Jaya division chief Abdul Halim Samad, paid him a surprise visit. Abdul Halim handed him a letter and told him ominously, “We don’t want to hear any explanation now; this is our letter, you read and answer it!”
Loh was warned that UMNO Youth would ‘take action’ if he failed to respond to the letter within a number of days. Some in the group had brought along video cameras to record the brief meeting.
The Kelana Jaya division claimed Loh had hurt the feelings of those sensitive touchy feely UMNO Youth members. They reminded Loh that the majority of voters in his Kelana Jaya parliamentary constituency are Malays. Aha! Here's a chance for PKR in next general election.
Abdul Halim confirmed to Malaysiakini that he had given Loh a protest letter but declined to comment on the contents. When asked whether he had gone to Loh’s office to teach the MP a lesson, he declined to comment, saying that it was a sensitive matter. [meaning it was 'yes'?]
I wonder whether they took along the 50-foot keris Sang Panca Ancam?
Perhaps PAS Youth could be next to visit Loh?
