The Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said that the Nasir episode should be a lesson to everyone to be racially sensitive. He and the government has distanced themselves from any of the statements made by Nasir. This is a welcomed response.
The NewStraitsTimes reports the Prime Minister saying:
“The citizenship of a Malaysian is clearly defended in the Federal Constitution and it cannot be questioned by anyone.
“I have issued a statement on this but I would like to say it again that what was said is not my view nor is it the stand of the government".
So, 1Malaysia is on track!
