PETALING JAYA: Police arrested Sept 16 red shirt rally organiser Datuk Jamal Yunos on Friday night.

Kuala Lumpur CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Zainuddin Ahmad said Jamal was detained at the Ampang Jaya police station where he gave a statement to the police.

“We arrested him under Section 105 of the Criminal Procedure Code to prevent a crime from occurring over his alleged statements that riots would occur in Petaling Street,” Zainuddin told The Star Online.

It is learnt that Jamal, the Sungei Besar Umno division chief, was detained at 9pm Friday and is being held at the Dang Wangi police station.

Earlier in the day, Deputy IGP Datuk Noor Rashid Ibrahim said police would summoned Jamal to Dang Wangi to record a statement over statements he made on Saturday’s rally at Petaling Street which has now been called off. (Read: Ali Tinju: Rally in Petaling Street called off)

Noor Rashid reportedly said police would not compromise with anybody trying to organise the rally and would take a firm action.

Police have warned Jamal that he would be arrested if he was found culpable of instigating chaotic situations.

On Wednesday, Jamal told reporters that the rally could take place on Saturday if the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry failed to act on complaints of illegal traders.

He, however, later said he would not be in Petaling Street on Saturday, saying he has nothing to do with rally.

“I am not involved and I am not going to be in Petaling Street,” he said.

Asked if he has information if protesters will gather in Petaling Street tomorrow, Jamal said he does not know.

“I repeat, I am not involved in the rally, so I do not know if one is really going to take place tomorrow,” he added.

Jamal has said that he was present at the Sept 16 rally to counter the Bersih 4 rally “as a middleman.”

“The police asked me to help with dispersing the crowd and that is all I did,” he said adding that he did not organise the Sept 16 rally or the one to be held tomorrow. He claimed the media had “spun” facts about the rally against him.

***************

In first place, it is not his place nor authority to act on behalf of the enforcement officers of the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumerism for the fake goods peddled at the permanent Petaling Street flea market.

Hence, there is no reason for him to organise the ‘Redshirt Rally’ tomorrow, at the planned venue.

Second, the Malays made the point aloud for the surprised turn out for the 16 September 2015 rally called ‘Perhimpunan Rakyat Bersatu’, despite the poor preparation and haze looms the region.

It was the message aloud as a response to the BERSIH 4.o rally which was sanctioned and promoted by DAP, which saw 80% or there abouts of the participants are of the Chinese ethnic.

The chants were guised as “Free and fair elections”, “Democracy and freedom of expression”, “Racism” and so forth. Where else, the underlying message is to rile up Malaysians to topple Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak and the UMNO/BN led Federal Government.

Third, the Malays who constituted the majority of Malaysians in Semenanjung are no longer a group of silent majority and pessimistic in making the stance but instead came out to state that the choice the made shouldn’t be mocked.

Fourth point is that the Malays came out to tell the Chinese not to take their accommodating and tolerant nature as allowance to be treated as push-overs. They outright stated in the rally that they no longer can tolerate provocations, challenges and insults.

It is against the accommodating and tolerant traditional good nature of the Malays. It is against the heritage of the Malays village nature. It is against the principles of the formation of this nation and the practice of togetherness as citizens. It is against the spirit of understanding and unity, the main foundation of this nation.

It is against the teachings of Islam as the faith of the Malays and religion of the Federation.

Thus, there is reason for the ‘Redshirt Rally’ be organised for tomorrow. By far, threats in the likes of “Riots in Petaling Street” is a very serious proposition to be ignored and no action to be taken.

  1. I abhor the ikan bakar bloke for his irresponsible talk that harms racial harmony. He simply cannot take the law into his own hands and deserves to be acted upon by and under the law – Police arrest.

    But why did the Chinese Ambassador go to Petaling Street and talked as if he is interfering in the internal affairs of this country? What business is it of his or of China saying “China ‘will not sit idly by’ if its interests are infringed upon”, as quoted by the Straits Times? What “interests”, what “infringed upon”?

    Does he not realize that those people are Malaysian citizens and not citizens of China? Is he not thinking of them in terms of “fellow Chinese” and, if so, is he not bloody racist? How can he? He is called Dr, is he Medical or PhD Dr? If the latter, shouldn’t he be of sufficient mental capacity as to be open-minded and, most of all, treat the Petaling Street matter as an internal Malaysian business that he should stay out of?

    I’d like to hear the Ministry of Foreign Affairs views on this as I think the Ambassador should at least be “talked to” if not formally protested against.

    • My comment down below on Wisma Putra summoning the Ambassador should have been up here.

      Wanna add:

      Look at the behaviour of the Chinese President now visiting US – in a toast of champagne as shown on tv, he drank first instead of waiting for Obama to finish clinking glasses with nearby guests.

      Is that what they call ultra kiasu-ism or plain communist no finesse?

  2. I think the Chinese Ambassador’s behaviour is that important to the national sovereignty and dignity of this country as to deserve more than one comment here, though the thrust of BD’s post is in another direction. I’ll dwell on it for a bit –

    It’s well and fine that “The Chinese government opposes terrorism and any form of discrimination against races and any form of extremism”. But Jamal ikan bakar is not Al Qaeda, ISIS and that kind of terrorist stuff.

    Hell, if the Chinese Ambassador or China wants to talk about racial discrimination, he should be responding to the many accusations against China’s treatment of the Tibetans, the Mongols, the Uighers etc that the Chinese Government have been bullying in China. The poor Dalai Lama have been wandering all over the places in the West etc, not having a place to lead his people in Tibet that China has incorporated into their political boundaries.

    Saying that Beijing would not think twice about speaking up against threats to the interests of its citizens (Malaysiakini – that news scrotal may be provoking), what does he mean? The Son of a Gun is a political appointee, not used to diplomatic language, using the kind of language the biadap Lim Guan Eng often uses?

    Quoted as saying “.. violations of legal rights and interests of Chinese citizens and businesses, which may damage the friendly relationship between China and the host country, we will not sit idly by.” Can any one verify if Petaling Street has many “Chinese citizens”? If so, are they legal residents in this country?

    • All those goods that are sold in petaling street are from China. So when business stops, it is harming China’s citizen indirectly. It is in fact, a liberty of China to produce copy cat items.

      But my personal stance on the matter is, good on China for voicing out. What that Jamal talked about was a crime against fellow humans. So i see it as no different from Malaysia voicing out over Israel’s action and the world’s inaction

      • I disagree. In that case, they cannot be protecting their imitation goods industry. I any case it affects their citizens only indirectly, why so hash, barbaric sounding talk?

        Chinese President in US now, curtly replying “China does not hack” when questioned about cyber crimes said to be done by the Chinese in China. Everybody in the US and Europe are criticizing them now. They are behaving like international gangsters.

      • Jewelizhot’

        You are just giving an excuse ,very much like Guan Eng did .

  3. Bersih 4 with an “overwhelmingly Chinese attendance” and exploited by the DAP Cina Bukit Kit Siang’s and Guang Eng’s presence, made it clearly anti-government in stance.

    When calling for Najib to go, it meant that they wanted the government to fall. Doing so in an illegal street demonstration, the implication was serious. That it was a Malay-led government, added with the trampling on Najib’s and Hadi’s photos, they went racial.

    The Perhimpunan Rakyat Bersatu was a fair response to the ungrateful ingrates. Those who were not even thankful to the Malays agreeing to their citizenship right at Merdeka and relaxing the rules for the issue of citizenship certificates after Merdeka. The message that they should not mess around with the generosity of the Malays clearly went into the heads of biadap Lim Guan Eng and the likes of him.

    The 16 September demo in Petaling Street was not necessary. The issue of imitation goods and participation of Malays in doing business there should be taken up with the authorities. But the Chinese Ambassador visiting the place and making those remarks reported in the media was out of place and undiplomatic to say the least.

  4. Bagus lah Pemuda Umno bikin reaksi terhadap komen Duta China di Petaling Street tuh. Harap akan sampai ke satu tahap Duta tu minta ma’af –

    Clarify and apologise, Umno Youth man tells China after envoy’s Chinatown speech

    Malay Mail Online – ‎15 minutes ago‎
    KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 26 – An Umno Youth leader has taken offence to remarks on the recent Petaling Street ruckus made yesterday by China’s …

    • I believe the ambassador was there on invitation, if the Malay claimed that they are the majority , someone, wanted to show that ,they have numbers .

  5. The Star Online quoted Wisma Putra officials saying that that the Chinese Ambassador will be summoned to explain his remarks on Monday.

    “Malaysia views his remarks seriously. It is tantamount to interfering in Malaysia’s domestic affairs,” one official said.

    The Star said that the Prime Minister’s Office has also been informed of the summon.

    Good. Teach the barbarian some diplomacy. They used to think that China was the “Middle Kingdom” and others outside were barbarians. Tell them to wake from that dream.

  6. I wonder what is his contribution to the country/state that earned him his title? Bila jual ikan bakar pun dibagi Dato”ship, what are we supposed to expect? A world class politician/leaders?

    These are the type of people who are going to seal UMNO fate in less than 3 years from now if they continue to be provided with the avenue to influence events in the next couple of year. How sad.

    • How sad? we have been sad since the bringing in of the ingrates by the brits.you want a datukship? i don’t think you deserve by the way you ridicule others? who gave the datukship? if you do not know the truth, that does not mean that it is the untruth..

      • Equally sad that China sending his ambassador who think that the Chinese hear, are her subject .

  7. Varua,
    The way you ridicule others, you do not deserve to judge others, what more talk about the quality of world leaders. I do not think your definition of leaders is justified.
