Ia menyebabkan Datuk Abdul Rahim Abu Bakar sendiri terpaksa membuat laporan polis terhadap Rizal Faris Mohideen, yang juga penganjur demonstrasi tersebut. Di dalam demo tempohari, gambar Guan Eng telah dibakar oleh wakil-wakil DPMPP, pertubuhan yang dipimpin oleh Rizal Faris Mohideen. (Buat malu bapak dia aje, Haji Mohideen Kadeer, bekas calon PSRM di Balik Pulau tahun 1986).
Dengan peristiwa ini menunjukkan tindakan DPMPP tidak mendapat sokongan dari DPMM sendiri sehingga Rizal Faris telah memaki dan mencarut terhadap Setiausaha Agung beliau sendiri.
Dari maklumat yang saya dapat dari sumber saya di Penang, puak2 yang demo tempohari tu marah sebab mereka tak dapat projek juta2 macam masa zaman Koh Tsu Koon dulu. Mereka mengamuk sebab masa zaman Tsu Koon mereka ni mudah dapat projek. Mereka ni ada hubungan dengan Tan Sri Nor Mat Yaakob yang menjadikan mereka mudah dapat projek.
Tapi, zaman Guan Eng, mereka susah dapat projek macam masa dulu. Jadi, mereka pun demo lah. Tuhan tu Maha Kaya, tak sampai sebulan lepas demo, turun petunjuk dari Nya. Rupanya, tindakan DPMPP ni tak dapat restu pun dari DPMM, pertubuhan induk mereka. Patutnya, bila SU Agung DPMM turun ke Penang, mestilah diiringi oleh wakil-wakil DPMPP.
Tapi, DPMM pun tak minat nak dilihat duduk semeja dengan DPMPP ni. Takut nanti DPMM akan jatuh taraf paria macam DPMPP.
Tu yang si Rizal ni mengamuk macam orang gila kat SU Agung DPMM di airport Penang. Rizal ni sedar tindakan demo tu takdak sapa sokong. Ni kita dengar SU Politik Tan Sri Nor pun dah kena tangkap dengan SPRM sampai terpaksa resign. SU Politik macam mana ada duit sampai RM2 juta saya pun tak tu.
Lepas ni tak tau sapa lagi yang kena tangkap.
Saya kalau ada bukti Guan Eng ni zalim, sila bawa kedepan. Kita lawan sebab kita tak pernah sokong kezaliman dan korupsi.
National Malay chamber sec-gen lodges report against Penang President
Written by Regina William, The Edge
The Malay Chamber of Commerce Malaysia secretary-general Datuk Abdul Rahim Abu Bakar has lodged a police report against Penang Malay Chamber of Commerce (DPMPP) president Rizal Faris Mohideen for allegedly threatening him and attempting to assault him at the Penang International Airport last Wednesday.
Abdul Rahim lodged the report at the Selayang police station on Feb 12.
According to the report, Abdul Rahim said that at about 10am on Feb 10, he was with Melaka Malay chamber chairman Datuk Md Ramli Mohamad and Terengganu Malay chamber deputy president Abdul Razak Yaacob at the airport when they bumped into Rizal.
Abdul Rahim said Rizal shouted at them and also used harsh words including "babi, sial, binatang, barua, kurang ajar".
Rizal allegedly warned them to be careful as he was "after them" and tried to hit Abdul Rahim with his hand but was prevented from doing so by Ramli.
"I left the place immediately as I did not want to entertain him, but he told Razak that he would shoot me and throw his shoes at me at the forthcoming meeting," Abdul Rahim stated.
He said he lodged the report for fear of his, his family's and friends' safety.
Hardly two hours after the alleged incident, Rizal lambasted Abdul Rahim for meeting up with Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng behind his back the night before.
At a press conference on Feb 10, Rizal said he had written a strongly-worded letter to the headquarters and to the president, and distanced himself from Abdul Rahim.
He said Abdul Rahim had never set foot in Penang to check out what was actually happening here or the situation of the Malays in Penang.
He also accused Abdul Rahim of seeking cheap publicity for himself and playing politics.
At the conference, Rizal also called Lim a liar, dictator, political reject and hypocrite, among other names.
The national delegation had met Lim for a dialogue following a flare-up between the DPMPP and Lim's administration.
The DPMPP had accused the state government of neglecting the Malays in the state, including intensifying enforcement action against Malay traders.
The DPMPP had also mobilised other Malay and Muslim non-governmental organisations to stage a demonstration against Lim's administration after Friday prayers on Feb 5.
