SHAH ALAM: The Klang chapter of Bersatu in Selangor will take the two bodyguards who were beaten by their employers for fasting as its ‘adopted family members’ to ensure their wellbeing until they find new jobs.
Selangor Bersatu chief Datuk Abdul Rashid Asari said the party would also engage a lawyer to help the two men to sue the perpetrator for damages.
“The two bodyguards were traumatised, not only physically, but also mentally,” he told a press conference, here.
At the same time, he said Selangor Bersatu would like to congratulate the police and the prosecutor for swiftly taking legal action against the suspect.
“This shows that the ruling government does not tolerate criminal acts that challenge the rights and freedom of religion, let alone against Islam which is the religion of the Federation as enshrined in the Federal Constitution,” he said.
Meanwhile, Selangor Bersatu had also presented a donation of RM3,000 to one of the bodyguards to help him cope with his job loss and cover his expenses during Ramadan.
“We will also try to help find suitable jobs for both of them as soon as possible,” Abdul Rashid added.
