Pasir Salak MP Tajuddin utters bad word that causes an uproar during proceedings
Pasir Salak Member of Parliament Tajuddin Abdul Rahman was again in the limelight when he was told leave the Dewan Rakyat for uttering p*k***k, an offensive word during a heated argument with several Opposition MPs today.
Although the microphones were muted by deputy speaker Rashid Hasnon, several MPs stood up and cautioned him that Tajuddin had uttered the word, that is linked to the female genitals.
After being given the first warning by Rashid, Tajuddin left the House.
Tajuddin had earlier stood up in the House, citing the parliamentary Standing Order 36(6) which had to do with uttering rude remarks.
The former deputy minister had initially asked opposition MPs to state a reason why they had accused him of disrespecting women in previously.
“You don’t know how we treated women, yet you said I disrespect women. Ask Wanita Umno (if they are being mistreated).
“The problem is actually with some women DAP members. ‘Perangai tak senonoh (uncouth), mulut cabul (disrespectful),” Tajuddin said.
This caused opposition MPs to stand up, demanding Tajuddin to apologise and retract his statement.
“Well, it’s true anyway. Not all of you, of course, but some are. ‘Batu api, kaki hasut’ (inciters). Always challenging other people,” Tajuddin added.
Degrading Remarks By Tajuddin
Opposition MPs including Hannah Yeoh (Pakatan Harapan-Segambut) however said Tajuddin had mentioned the word “p*****k” when the microphone was switched off.
Yeoh then asked Rashid why Tajuddin could get away with making such degrading remark in the Dewan Rakyat.
Rashid then reminded the MPs that he had issued a warning to Tajuddin.
“But, the warning didn’t work. This has happened many times and if you don’t do anything about it, this is going to keep happening,” Kasthuri Patto (PH-Batu Kawan) said.
On Monday, Isnaraissah Munirah Majlis (Warisan-Kota Belud) was suspended from the Dewan Rakyat for two days after she insisted that the House debate the Sulu Sultana claims.
Dewan Rakyat Speakeri Azhar Azizan Harun was later accused by MPs for being unfair, as male MPs who were more provocative seemed to be let off easily.
