Jamal thanks crown prince for video
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.
