Police have received a report against Professor Emeritus Zainal Kling, the man behind the Malay Dignity Congress held in Shah Alam last Sunday.
Bukit Aman CID chief Huzir Mohamed said Zainal, who is chief executive of the congress secretariat, was accused of making statements that could cause racial tension.
“The case is being investigated under the Section 505b of Penal Code for causing public mischief and the Communications and Multimedia Act,” Huzir told a press conference today.
Zainal gave the opening speech at the congress, in which he said non-Malays were challenging the “social contract” that allowed immigrants in pre-Independence days citizenship of Malaya, as well as challenging the Malay rulers and the special position of the Malays.
Yesterday, it was reported that a police report had been lodged against Zainal by Penang Society for Tamil Advancement activist Yoganathan Loganathan at Seberang Prai police headquarters.
Yoganathan said he lodged the report after reading about Zainal’s speech on news portals. – TMI
