Umno vice-presidential hopeful Senator Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam is being investigated by the police for allegedly making seditious remarks against the Chinese community at a recent event in Kuala Lumpur.

Kuala Lumpur city police have begun investigations following a report lodged by DAP Kota Laksamana assemblyman Lai Kuen Ban at the Tengkera police station on October 9.

Brickfields police chief Assistant Commissioner Azlee Abdullah reportedly confirmed both the report and investigation.

The Malaysian Insider understood that police have begun recording statements from several people who were at the function, including journalists.

7 Oct: Senator Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam attacked the Chinese during an entrepreneurs event by Perbadanan Usahawan Nasional Berhad (PUNB). This is what he said

In a move to whip up support in the coming Umno polls, vice-president hopeful Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam attacked the Chinese for allegedly being involved in all "illegal businesses" in the country.

1. Chinese successes are due to their involvement in illegal businesses like casinos, massage parlours and lottery

"We can't have casinos, 4D, Toto, gambling, lottery, massage parlors, ah long. These are all illegal. And the Chinese are the ones dabbling with all the illegal businesses," he told an audience of about 100 people at an entrepreneurs event organised by Perbadanan Usahawan Nasional Berhad (PUNB) today.

The former Malacca chief minister also said that although he worked tirelessly in the last general election, he was voted out by the Chinese.

“PUNB’s work will only be considered a success when there’s a whole chain of businesses, from suppliers down to the sale of finished products, all done by Malays". He then trained his guns at the DAP, saying that if the opposition was to take over the country, “the Malays will be living along the Gombak river”.

2. DAP is fighting to destroy the Constitution that protects Malay rights, they will suppress Malays

Ali also alleged that Kelantan has plenty of opportunities for logging but only DAP members are getting the conracts. "DAP wanted to enter Malacca but the people there rejected the Chinese-based party and gave their votes to Barisan Nasional".

He accused the DAP of acquiring Bumiputera land using their Malay members and then building tall apartments.
"Who knows what will happen five years from now," he said.

He also said Penang would not maintain its standing as a tourist hub as the state has a "chief minister who is a racist". "If he can, he'll suppress the Malays to the ground," Ali added.

"DAP wants to destroy the Constitution that protects the rights of Malays. As long as the Constitution is such, they will fight on," he alleged.

3. The Chinese want everything, the Malays have been good to them

The politician, in his campaign to win the hearts of Malay conservatives, also spoke on the necessity to retain Malays in most government agencies, including the police and armed forces.

"The Chinese want everything. We've treated them well. The Malays have been good to them". This stirred the emotions of the audience with some of them shouting, "ask the Chinese to return home".

"When the Chinese want help, request to build schools, scholarships, the government gave it to them. But when election time came, they forgot all this. All that's important is that they take over the Malays and turn them into 'pendatang'."

4. If the Chinese want their request for the government to recognise their education system, they should fulfill the Malay's request and close all vernacular schools

Ali also criticised Chinese schools, in particular the Dong Zong education group, for asking the government to recognise the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) and to allow the PMR and SPM examinations to be conducted in Chinese.

“This doesn’t even happen overseas. If they want all their requests fulfilled, then fulfill our request and close all the vernacular schools and turn it all into national schools like in Thailand and Singapore,” he added.

Islamic law identifies businesses that manufacture and market alcohol, gambling, porn and pork as 'haram' (illegal)

Haram business activities include the manufacture or marketing of any of these products: Alcohol, Gambling or gaming activities, Conventional financial services. Pork and pork products, Pornography

In addition, most Shariah scholars advise against investing in tobacco companies or those involved in weapons and other defense-industry products. And many classify the entertainment industry in general as haram.
