SHAH ALAM, Aug 13 — A Chinese DAP youth worker was hailed as a hero for risking his life to save a group of Malays from assailants that violently disrupted a forum here that featured Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as the main speaker.
A teary Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) youth chief Syed Saddiq Abdul Rahman told reporters after the incident that the DAP worker, by the name of Danial, did his duty as a security worker by taking a beating to protect a group of Malays from getting hurt.
“You say there is racism but…” Syed Saddiq said before he paused to control his emotion. “This guy, he is from DAP… when the incident happened he didn’t run backwards. Instead he went in (and used his body) to protect those who were attacked”.
