MP urges Kadir Jasir be probed for alleged remarks against Kedah Sultan

Sungai Petani MP Johari Abdul today urged police to investigate Bersatu Supreme Council member A Kadir Jasin under the Sedition Act 1948 over an alleged royal insult.
Speaking during a press conference in Parliament, Johari claimed that Kadir had made the allegedly seditious statement against Sultan Sallehuddin Sultan Badlishah in an Oct 30 post on his blog.
"Kadir had narrated incidents that happened on Tuanku's coronation day, how he raised his hands to pray, how he hoped that lyrics to the state song would be taken as guidance, but at the same time his writings contain elements of sedition towards Tuanku," said Johari, who is also Gurun assemblyperson.

Johari referred to the commentary that was also published by other media as "Rakyat perlu tahu peruntukan belanja buat raja" (The people need to know about the allocations for rulers).
"With this, I urge the police to investigate Kadir Jasin under the Sedition Act, because what he wrote can cause prejudice towards Tuanku Sultan Sallehuddin."
Malaysiakini has contacted Kadir Jasin for his response. - Mkini
