Ja­mal thanks crown prince for video

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

PETALING JAYA: Jo­hor Crown Prince Tunku Is­mail Sul­tan Ibrahim on Sun­day posted a video on the Jo­hor South­ern Tigers Face­book page to spread a mes­sage of non­vi­o­lence and also took a swipe at the Red Shirts move­ment.

The video showed men in red shirts per­form­ing a silat demon­stra­tion, fol­lowed by an­other frame with Tunku Is­mail fir­ing sev­eral shots from a hand­gun, seem­ingly at the per­form­ers, be­fore shrug­ging and walk­ing off.

In the post, Tunku Is­mail wrote that he does not take sides, ei­ther with “red or yel­low shirts”, and sup­ports Bangsa Jo­hor, which sym­bol­ises unity.

He also said unity is the so­lu­tion for the na­tion mov­ing for­ward, not violence and ha­tred.

“Guns don’t kill peo­ple, peo­ple kill peo­ple. Violence and ha­tred are not go­ing to make this na­tion a bet­ter place. Stay pos­i­tive. Lots of love,” he added.

Mean­while, Red Shirts leader Datuk Seri Ja­mal Yunos “ex­pressed his thanks” to Tunku Is­mail for the video.

In a Face­book post yes­ter­day, Ja­mal said Tunku Is­mail had meant to en­ter­tain the rakyat and was just jok­ing in re­gard to the video.

“(Tunku Is­mail) is a per­son with the peo­ple at heart. Thank you, Your High­ness, for re­spond­ing to the silat demon­stra­tion video,” he said.
