Maria Chin Abdullah emphasised that the Bersih 2.0 group does not condone violence. ― File picMaria Chin Abdullah who chairs Bersih 2.0 rubbished today a claim that the electoral watchdog had hired people to assault its own supporters for publicity.

She emphasised that her pressure group does not condone violence.

“We didn’t do it and it’s not our business to pay people to do violence,” she toldMalay Mail Online when contacted for response to a bizarre allegation by Datuk Jamal Yunos that Bersih 2.0 had paid goons to impersonate supporters of his Red Shirts movement and attack a Bersih convoy in Selangor recently.

“We don’t pay people for violence, that’s not what we are meant to do. We leave it to the police to investigate.

“He should stop making wild accusations,” she added.

Chin said Bersih 2.0’s campaigns were peaceful in nature, and added that the Red Shirts leader has yet to specify his grief with her group’s ideals.

“We are talking about corruption, clean and fair election, clean government, we are talking about democratic government, empowering Sabah and Sarawak. What is it he doesn’t agree? Tell us. He has not had any agenda other than violence agenda,” she said.

Yesterday, Jamal was reported claiming that Bersih 2.0 had carried out the recent “violence and provocation”.

News portal Malaysiakini reported Jamal as accusing Bersih 2.0 of hiring someone to impersonate the Red Shirts by wearing a scarlet T-shirt and to kick a Bersih supporter on a motorcycle in Sabak Bernam.

Jamal, who is also an Umno division chief, reportedly said the polls reform group was also behind the assault against journalists covering the Bersih convoy outside a hypermarket in Kuala Selangor last Saturday.

The victims in both attacks have blamed Jamal’s Red Shirts movement for the incidents.

Bersih 2.0 is currently on a nationwide convoy ahead of its Bersih 5 rally on November 19, while the Red Shirts movement have also carried out their own counter-convoy and announced plans for a counter-rally.

  1. The red shirts can take to the streets and heap praises on Najib, Rosmah and 1MDB for all we care but do not justify your violent actions by using Bersih as an excuse.

  2. Any Malaysians with brain will call Jamal Yunos a stupid clown and a serial liar like his financier, Najib and Rosmah incorporated. He is shaming the Malays and the Muslim community.
