Umno secretary-general Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor denied that the attack on cartoonist Zunar's exhibition at Komtar, Penang had anything to do with Umno.
This came a day after he denied Umno had anything to do with the attempted attack on Shah Alam MP Khalid Abdul Samad on Parliament grounds by the supporters of Umno's Pasir Salak MP Tajudddin Abdul Rahman.
"This (the attack against Zunar) all has nothing to do with Umno central, just like what happened at the Parliament House (when Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad was attacked).
"I have already explained this," he said today.
"We don't know (about it) and we don't encourage what has happened to Khalid Samad and Zunar.
"We didn't encourage it, it's not our work," he told reporters after officiating an event at Desa Water Park, Kuala Lumpur.
On Thursday, Tajuddin's supporters, including his son Firdaus, ambushed Khalid Samad who was entering Parliament, purportedly over the two MPs' verbal exchange in the House.
Yesterday a group led by Penang Umno Youth chief Rafizal Abdul Rahim disrupted an exhibition by political cartoonist Zulkifli Anwar Ulhaque, better known as Zunar, at the Komtar building in Penang.
PKR information director Fahmi Fadzil today urged Umno to discipline its members and take appropriate action against those who have been involved in the recent spate of incidents.
He said not doing so would give the impression Umno is tacitly condoning such acts.
'Don't hurt feelings'
Tengku Adnan said people should be more careful not to hurt the feelings of others.
"We hope they will be more rational [...] those like Zunar, like Khalid Samad should exercise more caution.
"Don't hurt others' feelings, when you do that fights would happen," he said.
"Whether Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu and so on, we should give and take.
"We don't want what has happened in Myanmar to happen to us," he added.- Mkini
