Penang deputy chief minister (II) P. Ramasamy said in his press statement today, “The police arrests of some individuals for escalating the brawl at Low Yat Plaza clearly indicate they have close nexus with Umno.”
Oxford dictionary defines ‘nexus’ as meaning “a connection or series of connections linking two or more things”. Hence Ramasamy is connecting the Low Yat riot closely to Umno.
Meanwhile, Grandpapa Dapster Lim Kit Siang has drawn parallels between the Low Yat and May 13 incidents.
Mama Dapster Hannah Yeoh today gave a shout-out to DAP Senai Adun Wong Shu Qi – see tweet by @hannahyeoh below.
YB Wong, who is also the policy director for DAP Johor, said in her July 13 press statement that “Umno stoking racism in Low Yat to divert attention”.
She alleged that “the ruling regime has found it fit to constantly agitate racial tension for its own political survival”.
Aside from accusing Umno of blatant racism, Wong added:
“As a ‘Anak Bangsa Malaysia’, I believe all Malaysians are standing together to say NO to racism. It is incumbent on the regime to ensure that the Low Yat incident does not escalate further.”
The DAP evangelistas are positioning themselves as #SayNoToRacism – see Hannah Yeoh’s tweet below.

The DAP evangelistas’ idea of being “unracist” is to wear tudung, songkok, baju Melayu and kain sampin as well as to similarly dress up their ‘Ubah’ hornbill mascot in tudung, songkok, baju Melayu and kain sampin .
