Two men were recently caught on camera after taking to the streets of Penang to vandalise the Chinese translations on street signs with black spray paint.

In photos shared by Sin Chew Daily, the men were pictured spraying black paint over the Chinese characters on the Gat Lebuh Armenian street sign. The photos are said to originate from a video posted in a Facebook group where one of the men said,  “According to the constitution, Bahasa Malaysia is our national language, not Mandarin. I’m sorry, but if you want to arrest me, then feel free to do so”.

“We live in Malaysia and do not practice racial discrimination,” added the man after committing the act of vandalism. It is believed that the two culprits also spray-painted over the Chinese characters on a street sign in Pengkalan Weld as well.

“Bahasa Malaysia is our national language. We must use it. The state government is trying to promote an atmosphere of insecurity. We will no longer give face,” said the men.

The Penang Island City Council has since taken action by reporting the vandalism and Mayor Yew Tun Seang will issue a statement of response accordingly.
