DAP says the "hate" posters against Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and public figures Ambiga Sreenevaasan and A Samad Said, found in Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) this morning, will only make the people despise the perpetrators more.
“We forgive them whoever are responsible. The more they do it, the more people will despise them,” said DAP MP for Segambut Lim Lip Eng. Lim through his Twitter reported that the offensive posters were "posted all over TTDI this morning".
One set depicts Guan Eng calling him ‘anti-Malay’, while the other depicts Bersih chairperson Ambiga and poet and national laureate Samad Said and reads “Vote Ambiga, Vote for free sex”.
“We urge TTDI police to announce openly who the culprits are, because the police should be able to easily identify them through the many CCTV recently installed in TTDI under Najib's transformation programme,” tweeted Lim.
The MP said in a statement later today that the posters were found at bus stops, public telephone booths and plastered over old posters along Jalan Datuk Sulaiman and Jalan Burhanoddin Helmi in the Kuala Lumpur suburb under his constituency. He expressed “disgust” at the intolerant, racist and politically-motivated posters. “Some cowards had put these posters overnight with an intolerable message (on it) as told to me by my TTDI supporters. “Upon checking in the later part of the morning this message has been torn off,” said Lim.
Escaped cops' notice
He said it was a surprise that the police had not known about the exercise of putting up the posters, that took place along two main roads in the area and that must have taken a considerable amount of time. “A quick count of the posters measuring 1ft by 2ft confirmed that quite a substantial amount of money had been spent on this exercise,” he added.
Lim slammed the perpetrators for such an act in a multiracial neighbourhood and on the eve of Prophet Muhammad’s Birthday tomorrow.
“I suspect that the purpose was to create discord and suspicion. “I strongly urge the police to investigate and nab the culprits involved as this neighbourhood is one that is proud of the diversity of its residents and any racial discord intended shall not be tolerated. “It would be a shame if these posters are to remain any longer than the time they have been up,” he said.
