When he sent his MC to his supervisor, Dijin, the latter replied: “Please apply leave MC form Send to soon”.

Eight minutes later, Dijin sent another message, “马来人都一样”, translating to “Malays are the same”.

Netizens who commented on Mr Qayyuum’s post were outraged at Dijin’s comments, and more so that he deliberately did so in Chinese.
