LANGKAWI: Kedah Pakatan Harapan (PH) Youth chief Asmirul Anuar Aris lodged a police report against Umno Supreme Council member Lokman Noor Adam today for allegedly defaming and insulting Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his parents.
He claimed Lokman had made the defamatory remarks and insults in a video clip uploaded on his Facebook account.
He alleged that Lokman had also stirred racial sentiments by saying Mahathir was a puppet of DAP.
“As Kedah PH Youth chief, I lodged the police report so that an immediate investigation can be carried out,” he told reporters outside the Kuah police station here.
Asmirul also claimed that the video clip was intended to incite hatred towards Mahathir.
“The people should understand that Mahathir is making a huge sacrifice at 93 to serve Malaysians, all because of the scandals of the previous Barisan Nasional government,” the Kubang Rotan assemblyman said.
