Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on Wednesday urged the people not to overreact to the use of the word “pariah” by the Prime Minister recently.

He said facts should be established to determine the context of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s statement and the use of the word.

Muhyiddin was commenting on the move by several Kapar PKR members, who had lodged a police report against Dr Mahathir for using the word “pariah” when commenting on Lynas Corp.
