KLUANG: A video recording of a group of youths harassing Kluang Pakatan Harapan leaders at a Ramadan bazaar here yesterday has caught the eye of social media users.
The footage, which has gone viral, shows the youths chasing away the Pakatan Harapan group, led by Kluang Member of Parliament Liew Chin Tong, who is Johor DAP chairman and DAP national political education director, who was with other party members distributing dates to Muslims at the bazaar.
The youths are also heard cursing and threatening to bash up the camera.
Also seen are former Johor Pas Youth member Sheikh Omar Ali, who is now DAP’s assistant publicity secretary, and DAP’s Socialist Youth (Dapsy) national secretary Tan Hong Pin.
Liew, who uploaded the video on Facebook, wrote that the 5.45pm incident should not have occurred during the month of Ramadan, as it was tainted with hatred and harsh words.
“We had already sought the approval of the secretariat of the bazaar (to distribute the kurma), who was managing the food section.
“However, the secretariat in charge of the clothes section did not want us to be there,” he said.
Sheikh Umar reportedly claimed that one of the youths had prevented the opposition party representatives from entering the same bazaar in 2014.
A police report was lodged at the Kluang police station on the night of the incident.
