Crowd gives Kluang MP's name vulgar twist during Umno Youth chief's speech
Protesters at a rally against Kluang MP Wong Shu Qi resorted to mocking her with vulgarities during a speech by Umno Youth chief Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki.
Playing on her name, the crowd called the DAP lawmaker "Wong P**i", a vulgar Malay term for female genitals.
The exchange played out as follows:
Asyraf: Why are we here this evening? What is the significance of us gathering in front of the office of the DAP Kluang representative, Wong?
Crowd: Shu Qi
Asyraf: Shu Qi. Wong?
Crowd member: P**i!
Asyraf: Shu Qi
Crowd: P**i, p**i! (followed by laughter)
Asyraf: The other things I don't want to say. I did not say that; I just came back from the haj.
The protest was streamed live over the Umno Tebrau Youth's Facebook page.
The crowd had gathered outside Wong's office in Kluang to protest against the DAP lawmaker following her use of a "pornographic" book as an example of texts written in Jawi/khat.
Wong said these irreverent materials had made Jawi more relatable to her Chinese audience at a talk last week. This was when the proposed introduction of compulsory khat lessons for the primary school syllabus was still a hot topic.
In his speech today, Asyraf said Wong's reasoning was insulting, not just to those who used Jawi but also to the Chinese.
"We must pressure her to make an open apology to the Malays for insulting Jawi and also apologise to the Chinese for linking them to dirty minds.
"I have many Chinese friends. I never knew the Chinese had dirty minds other than Wong. She should be crowned the mother of obscenities in this country," he said, adding that she should also resign.
Ashraf said it was time for the Chinese to stop being fooled by the DAP and for all citizens to be respectful of one another again as it once was.
Earlier in his speech, he said communal ties had deteriorated since the Pakatan Harapan and DAP took power.
"Malaysia is a country for all, for Malays, Chinese, Indians, Kadazandusun and others. Don't play with racial sentiments. They (DAP) are the racists and chauvinists," he said.
He cited the Seafield riots last November as an example. He said it was not a racial riot but it was racialised.
He cited how Selangor exco member V Ganabatirau had initially blamed the first night of rioting on Muslim groups. Ganabatirau has since apologised.
Asyraf also blamed DAP leaders for fanning tensions during the Seafield riots last November by issuing a statement critical of the police.
