KUALA LUMPUR — Nov. 29, 2018: Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad today made clear that the government will ensure no one makes a mockery of national harmony and peace.
In this context, the government will not tolerate this, with Mahathir warning that action will be taken according to the law.
“If anyone violates the law for their own interests, this government which upholds the principle of the rule of law will act in accordance with the law,” he said in the Dewan Rakyat following the riots in the vicinity of the Seafield Sri Maha Mariamman temple in USJ 25 early Monday and Tuesday.
While it is not the intention of the government to punish anyone blindly, Mahathir emphasised that democracy has its limits and everyone must understand these boundaries.
Thus no one can act as one likes in violation of the laws and cause anxiety among the people and chaos in the country. — Bernama
