Suspend The Star For A Year, Urges Perkasa?

More calls for the Home Ministry to take stern action against the newspaper over its front page blunder which critics say hurt the feelings of Muslims.

Home ministry secretary-general Alwi Ibrahim has described the blunder by the newspaper as deplorable.

Perkasa has called on the home ministry to suspend the licence of The Star for a year as criticisms grew over the English-language daily’s front page reports on Saturday which Muslims deemed insensitive.

The Malay rights group made the demand in a memorandum submitted to the ministry today.

Perkasa Wiranita chief Foziah Nawawi said The Star had made similar mistakes in the past but it crossed the line this time.

“We will not accept any more apologies from The Star as they may repeat the action even after apologizing.

“We urge the home ministry to immediately suspend their license to serve as a lesson to the company,” she said.

The Star carried on the front page of its Saturday issue a picture of Muslims performing the tarawih prayers below a report on terrorism with the headline “Malaysian terrorist leader”.

It published an apology on the matter yesterday.
