Bersatu's women's wing, Srikandi Bersatu, has called on the police to investigate Segambut member of parliament (MP) Hannah Yeoh for inciting the people of Sabah and Sarawak

Amid a political impasse, the Bersatu wing is saying that they oppose a Facebook post Yeoh made on Monday, 21 November.

In a statement yesterday, 22 November, Srikandi Bersatu said that Yeoh's post "incited the people of Sabah and Sarawak by portraying that there are political parties toying with racial and religious tension among Malaysians".

"The same statement made by Hannah Yeoh also incited the people of Sabah and Sarawak to reject Perikatan Nasional (PN) based on photos of Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang."

The party then called on the police to investigate the serious matter.

In her Facebook post on Monday, Yeoh urged East Malaysian citizens to inform their political parties of their interests

"People of Sabah and Sarawak, let the political parties who represent your interest know - that you want a multiracial federal government in Putrajaya and not one who toys with racial and religious tension among Malaysians," she wrote.

Yeoh added screenshots of headlines about Sarawak leaders wanting to ban PAS president Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang from entering the state over corruption remarks, as well as backlash against PN chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin over his claim that rival coalition Pakatan Harapan (PH) had a "Christianisation" agenda in their campaigns.

In response to the allegations, Yeoh questioned, "Who is the leader of Srikandi Bersatu? Don't they have other work to do?"

She addressed the issue in a tweet last night.

According to Free Malaysia Todaythe chief of Srikandi Bersatu is Datuk Seri Rina Harun.

The former Women, Family, and Community Development minister recently failed to capture the Sepang parliamentary seat in the 15th General Election (GE15).
