Law and Institutional Reform Minister Azalina Othman Said recently said that the government is mulling a new law to impose civil penalties on those who play up the “three Rs” (race, religion and royalty) sentiments. The new act may be called “the state of nation act”.

The minister also said that the government will hold discussions with relevant parties today to assess existing laws and look into the need for a new law.

In response to that, the NGO Pusat Komas released a statement saying that it welcomes Azalina’s proposal. BFM talks to Komas programme director Dr Ryan Chua.
