Video: Respon Kenyataan DS Ismail Sabri

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak should sack Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri for being "racist" and "stupid" in asking the Malays to boycott Chinese businesses, says a PAS lawmaker.

Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad said such attitude is unbecoming and Najib should just remove the agriculture and agro-based industry minister from government.

“There is no way that the high prices of goods can be blamed on one race... It is stupid and oversimplifying matters. It is as if the prices went up because the Chinese wants it,” he he told a press conference at his office in Shah Alam today.

He said the government was the main culprit for the price hikes, and its failure could not be masked by playing the race card.
"If Najib is really against racism and less intelligent leadership, sack Ismail Sabri," he said.

Ismail drew flak following a Facebook posting urging Malays to use their buying power by boycotting Chinese traders who refuse to bring down goods prices.

"The majority of consumers are Malay, Chinese are a minority, if the Malays boycott their businesses, they will surely have no choice but to reduce their prices," he wrote on his Facebook page.

He singled out the OldTown White Coffee chain owned by OldTown Bhd, saying DAP MP Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham owned shares in the company.

"As long as the Malays don't change, the Chinese will take the opportunity to oppress the Malays," said Ismail.

Ismail’s statement drew flak from DAP, MCA and Gerakan leaders, and was quizzed by the police yesterday over the Facebook post.

Kerana Tidak Istiqamah Maka Akhirnya Terpinggir

Keputusan PRU14 sekarang telah diketahui umum. Pakatan Harapan (PH) berjaya mengambil alih Putrajaya dan negeri-negeri di seluruh Negara kecuali Perlis, Pahang dan Sarawak yang kekal bawah BN sambil Kelantan dan Terengganu jatuh pada PAS.

Walaupun akan ada yang berkata bahawa PAS telah berjaya dengan keputusan anatara yang paling cemerlang dalam sejarahnya, hakikatnya ianya sebenarnya boleh jauh lebih baik dari itu. Malangnya, sifat gopoh dan kurang yakin kepada pendekatan yang diikutinya sejak zaman reformasi telah menyebabkan PAS semakin terpinggir dari arus perdana politik negara. Ia kembali sebagai parti pantai timur dan kawasan kampung Melayu setelah beraksi cergas di pantai barat dan kawasan bandar pada tahun-tahun pasca reformasi. Cogan kata “PAS for all” kian tidak kedengaran dan PAS kembali sebagai parti bersifat eksklusif memperjuangkan agenda khas bagi masyarakat Muslim dan Melayu.
