I refer to the statement by former Court of Appeal Judge Mohd Noor Abdullah yesterday who warned that the Malaysian Chinese must be prepared for a backlash from the Malay community for their "betrayal" in the recently concluded 13th general election.

With due respect to him, the general election is a democratic process where any Malaysian can choose whichever party they wish to vote. Their choice is not an act of betrayal towards any political party or community.

No doubt, Barisan Nasional may have lost the support of majority of Malaysian Chinese in the 13th general election. However, not all Malaysian Chinese voted for the opposition. There are still a large number of Malaysian Chinese who supported the Barisan Nasional government.

Thus, it’s grossly misleading for him to create a false perception as if all Malaysian Chinese had betrayed the Malay community.

In fact, there are also people from the Malay community who supported the opposition.

As a current member of the MACC complaints committee, Mohd Noor Abdullah should refrain from making any statement that would cause uneasiness among Malaysians after the 13th general election.

Kedah Gerakan Youth is of the opinion that MACC should review the position of Mohd Noor Abdullah in their complaints committee.

Everyone should work together to unite Malaysians after the 13th general election and not otherwise.
