I condemn the disgraceful, violent incidents which took place at the Nothing to Hide 2.0 forum in Shah Alam on 13 August 2017.
All Malaysians, regardless of their political orientation have the right to take part in public gatherings without fearing for their safety.
The events at the forum were not normal. No sane person can justify brawls and setting off flares at a public forums for whatever reason.
Also, the actions of the perpetrators were an act of gross disrespect to Dr Mahathir Mohamad, as well as to his wife, Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali. The perpetrators and their confederates should be ashamed of themselves.
The police must conduct a thorough investigation into the incidents and take stern action against the perpetrators without fear or favour.
