KUCHING, April 2: In the aftermath of the Molotov cocktail attack at KK Mart Satok, the public have been urged to refrain from taking matters into their own hands as prosecution if ongoing over the ‘Allah’ socks issue.

Michael Kong Feng Nian, special assistant to Sarawak Democratic Action Party (DAP) chairman Chong Chieng Jen, said the socks bearing the word ‘Allah’ found to be sold in certain outlets of the local convenience store chain, was deeply a regrettable issue and should never have happened.

“However, the recent bombing of the KK Mart store in Satok is totally unacceptable. I strongly urge all members of the public to refrain from taking matters into their own hands.

“The prosecution has already filed charges against the directors of KK Mart and Xin Jiang Chang Sdn Bhd, the supplier of the socks.

“Additionally, the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong has issued an order to end the controversy. It is crucial that we refrain from interfering with the legal process and instead let it unfold naturally,” he said in a statement today.

Kong also pointed out that all religious teachings place a strong emphasis on the virtues of compassion, forgiveness, and love for others.

“We should take this as a chance to unite as a community rather than fostering more division and hostility.

“Moving forward, it is essential that we engage in constructive dialogue and collaborative efforts to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future,” he emphasised. — DayakDaily
