Conversation and explanation with the representative from SPR.
Press conference at the scene to explain the details of the cancellation of ceramah.
As usual, we expected a huge crowd to attend our ceramah, but, this ceramah could not proceed as the supplier of the sound system was also being threatened with bodily harm. These thugs, which came in six cars also threatened to destroy the stage and sound system equipment if used for ceramah conducted by me.
Explaining to the crowds of what happened with apology on the cancellation of the ceramah.
The crowd grew impatient and not less than 20 policemen were mobilized to the place where I was supposed to hold my ceramah.

After I left the place, I received information that thugs from Kota Padawan were used to stop the ceramah and a Datuk was involved!

Owners of premises in 7th Mile Bazaar, Batu Kawa and MJC whom I had approached for ceramahs to be held had similarly been threatened.
A police report had been lodged for police investigation.
The next ceramah will be held on the 2nd of March, 7pm at these two respective places:
i) Batu Kawah
ii) Sungai Apong
I urge members of the public and supporters to turn up for the ceramah at these two places.
