In a recent development, Kedah Menteri Besar Sanusi Nor is being investigated by the police for offences related to race, religion, and royalty, commonly referred to as 3R. The Inspector-General of Police, Razarudin Husain, made the announcement, shedding light on the alleged incident where Sanusi insulted the Sultan of Selangor. A special task force has been assigned to expedite the investigation process, which is expected to conclude within seven days.
The controversy surrounding Sanusi Nor erupted after several members of the People's Justice Party (PKR) lodged a police report against him, citing remarks made during a recent ceramah (public talk). Suryamuizzudin Kamarudin, the PKR information chief in Shah Alam, accused Sanusi of disregarding the authority and prerogative of the Sultan in the appointment of the Menteri Besar.
According to reports, Sanusi had drawn a comparison between the sultans of Kedah and Selangor and suggested that the Kedah ruler would not have appointed Amirudin Shari as the Menteri Besar. These comments have sparked a strong reaction and prompted an investigation into potential violations of 3R-related laws.
Addressing the media at Bukit Aman, Inspector-General of Police Razarudin advised political leaders to refrain from discussing sensitive 3R matters, particularly in the lead-up to state elections. He emphasized that such discussions could incite tensions among supporters, leading to public unrest.
Razarudin stressed the importance of considering the feelings of others and cautioned against crossing the line when speaking, especially if it involves insulting the royal institution.
As the investigation unfolds, all eyes will be on the outcome and subsequent actions taken by the authorities.
