Teresa Kok’s service centre was splashed with red paint and a dead chicken was placed at her doorstep, barely two weeks after a coalition of Islamic NGOsoffered a reward to anyone who dared to slap her.
Kok, who recently came under fire for allegedly insulting Islam and the Malay rulers in her Chinese New Year satirical video, was informed by the management of the building at about 9.20am.
"They called me immediately after discovering what had been done," she said.
Conservative Muslim groups had previously slammed her video “Onederful Malaysia” and had offered a RM1,200 reward to anyone who dared slap the DAP lawmaker.
In the protest held two weeks ago, the group also slaughtered two chickens and smeared the blood on a banner featuring Kok, Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang and Machang Bubuk PKR assemblyman Lee Khai Loon, who was behind a flash mob mocking Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak over his “kangkung” remark.
Kok and six others lodged police reports against the demonstrators, but Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has brushed off Kok's concerns, saying that a slap cannot be considered a threat.
Police have already questioned four members of the group involved in the protest. – February 19, 2014.
