Report lodged over insulting FB posting


BUKIT MERTAJAM: Parti Cinta Malaysia vice-president Huan Cheng Guan lodged a police report urging the authorities to investigate a Facebook account holder for allegedly posting a comment insulting Islam and Prophet Muhammad.

Huan said the comment, which contained serious derogatory remarks, may create disharmony among the Malaysian multi-religious society.

"We are urging the police and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission to act swiftly in investigating this matter.

"We cannot allow such unethical usage of social media to pose a threat to the stability of our multi-religious society," said Huan after filing his report at the Prai police station, here, yesterday.

Checks showed that the account holder had deleted her account on Facebook after her comment went viral on the Internet.

Huan said PCM had formed a cyber-trooper group Sensible and Ethical Malaysian United Troopers (Semut) to promote healthy social media usage among Malaysians.
