Previously warned social media users

The Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) previously published a statement urging members of the public not to spread online content that could potentially jeopardize national harmony on Monday (Nov 21).

The statement comes after a spate of TikTok videos threatening to reenact the tragic May 13 racial riots went viral on the platform.

It added that stern action will be taken against any parties under the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998, Sedition Act and the Penal Code.
