“In recent weeks, there has been an escalation of racially insensitive, seditious and disparaging acts and remarks by individuals and organisations bringing about a state of unrest and religious tension in the country.”
“When the police decided to invoke the ISA, the decision was based on intelligence and observation that certain acts by the individuals concerned were detrimental to the calm, peace and harmony of the country.”
“These acts if not curtailed would cause public disorder and be a threat to national security. An arrest under the ISA is only made when the police strongly believes that certain acts by individual can pose a serious threat to public order and national security.
“These are the grounds in which the police based their decision on.”
“We cannot allow the May 13, Kg Medan and Kg Rawa incidents to repeat and destroy the country.”
“The police will have to take pre-emptive measures in order to prevent the situation from getting out of control.”
