A supposedly peaceful anti-Isreal rally, turned violent held at a McDonald’s outlet in Dungun, Terengganu Tuesday was un-Islamic said a pro-Palestinian group and Malay NGO Aqsa Syarif.
Aqsa Syarif Berhad chairman Prof Madya Dr Hafidzi Mohd Noor expressed regret, saying the protesters’ actions of throwing objects and rattling the doors of the restaurant had violated the law and Islamic precepts.
“Unrestrained and excessive acts are not part of a boycott as they are akin to vandalism,” Hafidzi said in a statement today.
“Even though consumers have the right to conduct a boycott to put pressure, it is not appropriate to use physical or verbal actions to scare people, or to harm the premise owner and workers physically or emotionally,” he added.
Here are social media photos of the rally before it turned ugly yesterday.
