If Utusan is unable to explain its agenda for the utter unprofessional and biased journalism, I demand Utusan to apologise to Tan Kok Wai, Jeffrey Kitingan and me

On Monday, Utusan’s report targeted 3 non Malays members of parliament – Cheras MP Tan Kok Wai, Keningau MP Jeffrey Kitingan and me for not wearing the ceremonial outfit for the opening of the new Parliament session. The report purposely contained two photographs of me in a black suit while in the company of MPs in their ceremonial outfits. In its subsequent reports, Utusan published my rebuttals from my Facebook.

However, 48 hours have passed and Utusan has yet to explain why it only named the 3 non Malay MPs in the first report and intentionally left out the Malay MPs such as Marang MP Abdul Hadi Awang, Gua Musang MP Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, Lenggong MP Shamsul Anuar Nasarah.

If Utusan is unable to explain its agenda for the utter unprofessional and biased journalism, I demand Utusan to apologise to Tan Kok Wai, Jeffrey Kitingan and me.
