PEKAN: The Pekan Umno Division on Wednesday urged Pokok Sena MP Datuk Mahfuz Omar to seek an audience with and apologise to the Sultan of Pahang, Sultan Ahmad Shah, for having allegedly insulted the Ruler during a political talk.

Its secretary, Datuk Ahmad Azmey Abu Talib, said that only a face-to-face apology could calm the outrage of the people against Mahfuz.

“The act of embarrassing the Sultan is most regrettable and clearly portrays dirty politics to garner support. We strongly condemn Mahfuz’s rude act.

“As the residents of Pekan, renowned as the royal city, we are deeply hurt by the act which denied respect for the monarchy and the Sultan of Pahang,” he said to reporters after lodging a report at the Pekan District Police headquarters here Wednesday.

He was accompanied by several Pekan leaders of Barisan Nasional component parties.

Ahmad Azmey called for Mahfuz to be investigated under the Sedition Act 1948 as a warning for other politicians not to challenge the monarchy. – Bernama
