Umno and PAS have been told to stop fanning racial and religious tension by playing up the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD) issue, says Datuk Raja Kamarul Bahrin Shah Raja Ahmad.

The deputy Housing and Local Government minister said it was impossible for the country to ratify ICERD without any amendments to the Federal Constitution.

Raja Kamarul Bahrin said PAS and Umno should instead focus on drug problems in states that they helmed.
