    The recent vandalism committed towards a mural portrait of deceased firefighter Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim was an irrational act, says Fire and Rescue director-general Datuk Mohammad Hamdan Wahid (photo, above).

    Commenting on the incident in Shah Alam which began circulating on social media on Friday, he said as citizens of a developing nation, Malaysians should act rationally.

    Speaking to the media at a celebration at the Sarawak Fire and Rescue Department headquarters here today, Mohammad Hamdan said if there was dissatisfaction with certain quarters, "this is not the correct way to express it".

    A member of the Emergency Medical Rescue Services (EMRS) unit at the Subang Jaya Fire and Rescue Station, Muhammad Adib died a few weeks after sustaining injuries during a riot on the grounds of the Sri Maha Mariamman temple in USJ 25, in November last year.

    The inquest into the cause of his death is still underway.
