PUTRAJAYA, Feb 15 — Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi today reminded controversial rapper Namewee to not cross the limits following his his latest dog-themed Chinese New Year music video.
In the video shot in Putrajaya, Namewee is seen sitting, while surrounded by back-up dancers donning dog masks,pretending to engage in sexually explicit acts.
The video is shot against the backdrop of the Perdana Putra Building, where the Prime Minister's office is located.
"The person has escaped from many (lawful) actions before.
"This is not a warning. I just want to say that actions will be taken, because when that person managed to escape the law previously, it does not mean that person can escape forever," Zahid said, referring to Namewee.
Zahid also expressed worry that "lone wolves" or any individual organisations might take laws into their own hands, in reacting to provocative actions.
"Don't blame others then, because it is that person who asked for it, upon himself," he added.
Zahid also reminded the masses to respect religious differences, bearing the country's harmony in mind.
"Our country is one that priorities harmony. Harmony has to be translated by respecting religious differences. Difference in culture and race," he added.
