KUCHING, April 2: Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Youth has urged police to immediately investigate the individuals responsible for hurling a Molotov cocktail at KK Super Mart Satok and ensure legal actions are promptly served.

PBB Youth deputy chief Dato Lukanisman Awang Sauni emphasised that there should be no compromise towards groups intentionally inciting tension and fear within Sarawak’s diverse communities.

“I vehemently denounce the recent attack on KK Mart in Jalan Satok,” he stated, underscoring the alarming nature of such extreme acts and their intolerability in Sarawak.

He also urged the public to cooperate with law enforcement by providing any pertinent information.

Warning against the potential threats posed to public safety and the welfare of employees at the premises, Lukanisman, who is also the federal Deputy Health Minister, stressed that such threats are not to be taken lightly or treated as a matter of humour, nor should they be emulated from incidents happening in Peninsular Malaysia.

“I advise the people of Sarawak not to take this incident lightly and to work together to ensure that such extreme actions do not become a cultural norm in our society. We have legislations to address such problems,” he said.

Encouraging the multi-ethnic and multi-religious community of Sarawak to maintain composure and maturity in addressing the issues stemming from the uproar over the printing of the word ‘Allah’ on socks sold at certain KK Mart outlets, Lukanisman reiterated the importance of upholding unity and understanding.

Echoing these sentiments, Satok assemblyman Dato Ibrahim Baki said domestic attacks on premises using incendiary devices is unheard of in Sarawak and that this has never been Sarawak’s culture.

“As citizens of Sarawak and of this nation, we abide by the of rule of law. We should not and must not take the law into our own hands,” he said.

Given similar attacks in various parts of country, Ibrahim pointed out that it has tested the unity and resolve of Malaysians and now the community in Sarawak.

“Sarawak has demonstrated time and time again to be a model State in terms of unity among its diverse community and to say that it is fragile is untrue. I think all of us are in the same boat in our condemnation of this heinous act and that violence of any kind is intolerable and has no place in Sarawak,” he added.

Tupong assemblyman Fazzrudin Abdul Rahman, in condemnation of the incident, urged the public to remain calm while expressing confidence in the ongoing police investigation to apprehend the culprit.

“At the same time, I advise the public to avoid speculations and let the police conduct their investigation into the incident,” he advised. — DayakDaily
