Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador reminded political parties not to touch on racial and religious issues that might disrupt unity and jeopardise national security.

He added that the police’s participation and investigation into such issues would only burden the police force.

He lamented that their resources should be focused on curbing crime and tackling other pertinent issues.
