Hishammuddin to meet Johor Sultan about Moorthy 

(Bernama) -- Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein will have an audience with the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Almarhum Sultan Iskandar, on Tuesday over a sensitive statement made by Waytha Moorthy.

Waytha Moorthy who fled overseas had questioned the position of the Malays and Malay rulers in a posting on the website Free Malaysia Today (FMT) on Oct 7.

Hishammuddin said that he would ask police to study the matter (Waytha Moorthy''s statement) as it involved the very sensitive monarchy institution.

Waytha Moorthy''s statement was to create hatred towards the rulers and to dupe the people''s thinking, he told reporters at Selayang Umno Aidilfitri gathering in Kuang, Rawang today.

He said the monarchy institution is the patron for all races and religions and not for one particular race.

The ministry would discuss with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) since it would be a technical investigation.
