Stop the boycott campaign: Patriot

KUALA LUMPUR: The National Association of Patriots (Patriot) today called on irresponsible politicians to immediately stop the campaign to boycott products made by non-Muslims.

Patriot president Datuk Mohamed Arshad Raji (pix) urged the community to think as Malaysians, regardless of their background.

”The campaign to boycott such products started by them would only meet with failure as there are many other economic issues which should be given attention.

“The issue on the national poverty rate, as announced by an expert from the UN, the actual rate should be between 16 to 20% and not at the official level of 0.4%.

“The unemployment rate for those aged between 15 and 24 years is still high at the rate of 10.4%. The average household debt is still high at 83% of the of GDP. The weak position of the ringgit compared to that of the American dollar will cause the inflation rate to rise,” he said in a statement, here today.

Patriot also called on the people of Malaysia, regardless of race, to use their wealth and position to generate job opportunities and strengthen the national economy.

Patriot also wanted to see that the distribution of the national wealth was made fairly based on the ethnic and regional distribution. - Bernama
