KUALA LUMPUR: The wrong statement could lead to public distress, the Inspector-General of Police said in reminding politicians not to stir up issues for their own benefit.
Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador said politicians should act responsibly when making any statement.
“The actions of certain individuals in politicising certain issues for their selfish needs should not (happen) as there are more important matters the police should focus on,” he told a press conference at Bukit Aman here on Thursday (March 11).
“For example, certain parties questioned why security forces are monitoring the situation at houses of worship.
“This is such a petty issue that has been politicised by claims that the security forces were not sensitive in carrying weapons at houses of worship.
“With such issues, matters of race and religion are then brought up. This has to be stopped,” he stressed.
The action of the politician who made such statements would cause distress to the public, he added.
“When politicians bring up such issues, other parties will surely make police reports,” he said.
