GEORGE TOWN: A skinned cow head was found at the front gate of Seri Delima assemblyman R.S.N. Rayer's home in Jalan Tingkat Tembaga early this morning.
The gruesome discovery was made by his wife who was about to send their daughter to school at about 7am.
Rayer condemned the deed, saying those who committed the act were “uncivilised” and “anti-religion.”
He refused to be drawn into speculation that the incident was related to anti-Umno remarks he made in the Penang state assembly last month.
“I leave it to the police to investigate,” he told the media at a press conference at his house where he showed a close circuit television (CCTV) recording of the incident.
Footage showed a man, who had his face covered, approach the house on a motorcycle before throwing the head at the gate.
He then did a little jig, ostensibly to show his joy at his supposedly daring act, before speeding away.
This is the second time Rayer has received a threat after his nephew found five live bullets in a packet at their home last year in August.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng described the act as appalling and abominable while noting the use of cow heads as a threat was done before in 2009 in Selangor.
He said such acts were aimed at intimidating and humiliating their targets. Lim added that using the head of an animal the Hindus consider sacred, was an insult to the entire community.
“I hope the police can find the culprit,” he told a press conference at Rayer's house and called for a stop to the “language of fear and violence.”
Northeast district police chief ACP Mior Faridalatrash Wahid confirmed the incident when contacted.
He said police would be investigating the incident including reviewing close circuit television (CCTV) footage.
