The public is anxiously waiting to know the outcome of the police investigation against Jamal Md Yunos regarding his antic of beer bottles-smashing outside the Selangor state secretariat building. From his coffin to bath towel to the recent beer bottles-smashing, such ridiculous antics has happened once too often. While the opposition parties may secretly be pleased as such conducts of an UMNO leader are very likely to cause the party to lose votes, we in Persatuan Patriot Kebangsaan abhor such dastardly conduct. Besides causing public nuisance, he is a bad role model to the youths in our country. There are better ways to protest and demonstrate, but causing hate and animosity are certainly not in our concept of national unity.
We are veterans of the military and police, and have proudly severed our King and Country. We treasure our country's peace and national harmony. Jamal, being an honorary member of the Kuala Lumpur Special Forces Veterans Association, has tarnished the Association's image. We implore that his membership of the esteem Association be revoked.
As our country is coming close to the next general election, tension is bound to be high. We strongly urge politician and political parties not to outsource gangsterism to cause chaos and disharmony so as to achieve one's insidious objective.
Persatuan Patriot Kebangsaan would like to take this opportunity to ask our government, what has become of the National Unity Blueprint? In 2015, Tan Sri Joseph Kurup, the Minister in the Prime Minister's Department in charge of national unity, said the blueprint was in the final stages of drafting. We join other NGOs like G25 and the Bar Council in calling for the release and implementation of the National Unity Blueprint. As proud Malaysians we would like to participate in national activities to help strengthen national unity and harmony.
