DAP secretary-general Loke Siew Fook strongly criticised Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor for saying that non-Muslims constitute the majority of those arrested for involvement in bribery.

Loke deemed the allegation made by the Perikatan Nasional (PN) elections director as unfounded and irresponsible, expressing concern that such a sweeping statement would negatively impact Malaysia’s multicultural society.

“I dare Sanusi to present the report that led to this conclusion. Show me the facts you base your claims on. What study supports your assertions?”

“If he fails to provide evidence, Sanusi should publicly apologise,” Loke stated in a Facebook post.

Loke said the statement proved that Perikatan Nasional was destructive to harmony among races and should not be accepted by Malaysians.

He added that corruption should not be linked to a particular race, and that everyone had a responsibility to fight corruption.

Earlier today, Sanusi claimed that non-Muslims are the ones who get arrested the most for giving and receiving bribes. Sanusi claimed that what he has said is true and a fact.

Explaining why Pas president Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang claimed that non-Muslims and non-Bumiputera’s are the cause for corruption in Malaysia, Sanusi pointed his finger at DAP as the ones who started playing the narrative that Malay leaders are involved in bribery and corruption.

“I stick with my stand which is the same as Tok Guru (Abdul Hadi) that as long as it is true, then I will speak. Just go and take a look at the record of those arrested for the offence of giving and receiving, many are non-Muslims, it is a fact, and it is true,” he claimed. – NST
