KUALA LUMPUR: National Civics Bureau (BTN) deputy director Hamim Husin is no longer fit to hold his position and should be sent for counselling and retraining, MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said.
He said Hamim did not understand the concept of democracy when he proclaimed Malay rights as a mandate to rule the country.
"He obviously does not know what democracy is all about. In a country that practises democracy, it is the rakyat who determines who rules the country," he said after the party presidential council meeting at Wisma MCA here Tuesday.
Dr Chua said Hamim, who it was reported on a news portal Monday, allegedly used derogatory terms on the Chinese and Indians, should also be transferred out to a desk job.
On whether the Sedition Act should be used against Hamim, Dr Chua said it was up to the Attorney-General to decide.
