Several Malay-based groups have lodged a report against a netizen named Darren Chuah for an alleged “pig brain” comment on a Penang My Hometown FB posting deemed an insult to the community.

Gabungan Pelajar Melayu Semenanjung (GPMS) Penang, Pertubuhan Pribumi Perkasa Malaysia (Perkasa) Penang and Pertubuhan Kebajikan dan Dakwah Islamiah Se-Malaysia (Pekida) Penang lodged a report against one Darren Chuah at the Northeast district police headquarters in Penang this afternoon.

In a posting on the Penang My Hometown Facebook page, Chuah had allegedly commented: “The Malay mind is to fight to kill. No more. This is a pig brain.”

The Penang My Hometown Facebook page shared two video recordings yesterday by an unidentified furious man, who lashed out at the Penang government for Friday’s massive flash floods which crippled many parts of the island.

According to GPMS Penang information chief Azdy Mohd Arshad, he managed to screenshot the controversial comment made on that thread. The comment has since been removed.

“What he (Chuah) commented was very harsh and a clear insult to the Malays.

“We want police to call him in for questioning. We hope this will serve as a lesson to all in future to think before posting such comments on social media,” Azdy said.

He added that it was saddening that such comment had made it into the social media while the country was celebrating Malaysia Day.

“We should all be living in peace and harmony. There is no need for comments which can cause racial discord,” he added.

The 2.51-minute recordings by an unidentified man slammed Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and his administration for the massive flash floods reported in over 100 locations in Penang on Friday.

In both recordings, the man, who is clearly upset, was not visible.

The two video recordings have been shared on social media and garnered widespread comments, with some supporting the man and others condemning him.
