'Undilah' clip offensive to some, says Rais

Information, Communications and Culture Minister Rais Yatim said the video clip 'Undilah' was not suitable for broadcast because it had contents which offended certain segments of society.

"The video clip also contains subliminal messages aimed at influencing the audience," he told reporters after opening an arts appreciation programme in Pasir Salak near Teluk Intan today.

NONEHe said the withdrawal of the clip fom the air waves earlier was because it had not received approval from the Film Censorship Board (LPF).

"LPF does not come under my ministry but the Home Ministry, which will make a decision whether the clip can be shown," he said.

Prior to this, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) had stated that the clip could not be aired on television because it had to receive approval from LPF.

Meanwhile, on today's programme, Rais said it was aimed at reminding the Malays "not to forget their roots" in terms of culture, arts and language in the context of nationbuilding.
