PETALING JAYA - The 17-second video showing the Johor Crown Prince with a beckoning gesture has "not bothered" Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz whom the clip is said to be directed at.

"It does not bother me at all," Nazri told The Star Online of the video which appeared on the Johor Southern Tigers Facebook page on Saturday night.

The video showed Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim sitting in a chair looking out into a garden. He then turned to the camera and made a gesture with his left hand, seemingly to imply that he was not afraid to face any challenge.

Nazri had criticised the prince, saying that royalty should not get involved in politics or be prepared to be "whacked" in public.

"He should keep out of politics because otherwise, he will be subject to the same rule and we will whack him," said Nazri.

In a post on June 5, Tunku Ismail had criticised Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak for not attending a dialogue with a non-governmental organisation to discuss current affairs of the nation.
