Anggota Parlimen BN menggesa Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif (CEO) AirAsia X CEO Azran Osman Rani berhijrah ke negara pilihannya ekoran kritikannya terhadap Utusan Malaysia yang dikaitkan dengan laporan perkauman selepas pilihan raya umum.
Bercakap ketika membahaskan titah Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Bung Mokhtar Radin (BN-Kinabatangan) berkata, orang seperti Azran tidak layak berada di negara ini dan patut berhijrah ke negara lain.
Bagaimanapun, speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia mencelah dan berkata, tidak perlu mengkritik seseorang yang tidak boleh menjawab balik.
Beliau menegur supaya anggota Parlimen itu tidak menyalahgunakan kelebihan sebagai wakil rakyat untuk bercakap apa sahaja dan beliau mengingatkan supaya membahaskan isu berkaitan sahaja.
Bagaimanapun, Bung Mokhtar terus mengkritik Azran dengan menggelarnya "Melayu biadab" ketika bertukar hujah dengan Khalid Samad (PAS-Shah Alam).-malaysiakini
Kerana menghentam Utusan Meloya, dipanggil Melayu biadab, awat Utusan Meloya tak pernah biadab kah...
Bung Moktar tells AirAsia X CEO to migrate...
A BN MP has told AirAsia X CEO Azran Osman Rani to “migrate to a country of his choice” following the latter’s statements criticising Utusan Malaysia over the daily’s racially provocative editorials after the election.
“People like this do not deserve to be in this country. I ask him to migrate to a country that he likes,” said Bung Moktar Radin (BN-Kinabatangan, left) while debating the motion of thanks on the royal address in the Dewan Rakyat today.
However, speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia intercepted as Bung Moktar began criticising Azran, pointing out that was “not proper” to criticise someone “who can’t defend themselves”.
“Don’t abuse your privilege as an elected representative to say things as you like. Please confine your debate to the issue,” he said.
However, Bung Moktar persisted with his attack on Azran, calling him "Melayu biadap" (insolent Malay) after an exchange with Khalid Samad (PAS-Shah Alam).
“He (Azran) forgets that his existence in this country is because of the stability of the country which has given him the opportunity to do business,” Bung Mokhtar said.
He said that Azran’s warning to withdraw AirAsia X advertisements from Utusan Malaysia was a “serious threat”.
“Utusan Malaysia is not the voice of the Malays, it is the voice of Umno,” Khalid Samad later said.
Azran had earned Utusan Malaysia's displeasure after he had criticised the Bahasa Malaysia daily's "Apa Lagi Cina Mau" story following the general election story when Barisan Nasional had its worst result since independence.
This led the newspaper to take aim at him and boycott advertising from the airline that he helms.
However, CIMB Group CEO Datuk Nazir Razak came to his defence.
Nazir praised Azran for his forthright attitude, saying that it was a "mark of a leader".
Nazir's defence of Azran promptly saw Utusan Malaysia label Nazir as "anti-Malay". -malaysiakini
