KUALA LUMPUR: The incident involving the throwing of fireballs at the KK Mart Sungai Isap Kuantan store at 5 am this morning caused anxiety among local residents and the general public ahead of Aidil Fitri.


Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail the Minister of Home Affairs in a statement said the concern arises from the fear that such irresponsible acts may occur again during the festive season.


According to him, the police are taking the attempted arson seriously, especially considering a similar incident at KK Mart Bidor Perak on March 26. Legal action has been taken against the Director and Executive Chairman of KK Super Mart Group and the stocking supplier Xin Jian Chang Sdn Bhd, with suppliers and sellers already facing charges in court.


The discovery of socks with the word "Allah" on them has deeply saddened the Muslim community.


The police have confiscated the socks and halted sales, while the director of KK Mart has issued an apology. It is crucial to address this issue responsibly and avoid inciting religious, racial, or group sentiments for personal gain, he said.


While urging the public to boycott a brand may not be illegal, any attempts to trespass or set fire to KK Mart premises are serious offenses that can lead to property damage and loss of life.


The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) will continue to enforce the law to maintain public order and safety. It is essential for those advocating boycotts to take responsibility and prevent the escalation of tensions.


“I encourage individuals to trust the PDRM to investigate and apprehend those involved in these incidents.” he stressed
