An inter-religious organisation condemned the unprovoked attack on an emergency services worker outside a Hindu temple in Subang Jaya.
Ahead of a planned visit to the injured Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim, the Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism (MCCBCHST) expressed grave concern over the violence.
An unidentified person pulled the Emergency Medical Rescue Service (EMRS) worker from his vehicle and assaulted him, leaving him with life-threatening injuries.
“It is disgraceful and unacceptable behaviour that a man protecting others was unfairly taunted. The MCCBCHST strongly condemns the use of force and cause of harm on any member of the public.
“Malaysians must come together to uphold peace and harmony. Mutual respect and compassion are fundamental virtues to maintain stability,” the group said.
A delegation from the interfaith group was due to visit the injured rescue worker at the National Heart Institute (IJN) later on Nov 28, after he was transferred there from a private hospital in Subang last night.
Doctors at IJN have placed Muhammad Adib on life support and said he is now stable and showing signs of recovery.
