The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) has opened an investigation against Borhanuddin Che Rahim, the now former Vice Chief of Bersatu, Pasir Puteh division, after he issued racist remarks against national badminton shuttler, S. Kisona.

Based on a report by Sinar Harian, Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim, shared that the investigation paper was opened based on the police report received by his party recently.

“We have received a report on this matter, so we will carry out an investigation. We are investigating this according to Section 504 of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998,” he said.

Racism 2 1

Earlier, a racially offensive post was written and published on a Facebook account owned by Borhanuddin against S. Kisona, after she had lost to a Japanese player in the Sudirman Cup semi-finals in Finland.

The post read,

“From which estate did BAM pick up this Indian (k*l*ng) to be Malaysia’s main player?”

This received immense backlash from local social media users, including criticism from the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM), who strongly condemned the racist posting.

Borhanuddin later apologised and resigned from his position as Vice Chief of Bersatu, Pasir Puteh division.

Though, Malaysians were not happy and called for further action to be taken against him in an effort to showcase the intolerance towards racism in Malaysia, especially while upholding the ‘Keluarga Malaysia’ or ‘Malaysian Family’ principle created by Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

Now, only time will tell if the PDRM investigation into Borhanuddin will prove fruitful in Malaysians’ call for action for justice against racism.

What do think about this? Let us know in the comment section.
