Sarawak tells Perkasa to get lost

FMT Staff

All Sarawak BN component party leaders including Taib Mahmud’s PBB have slammed the doors on Perkasa and Ibrahim Ali

The Taib Mahmud administration does not want Perkasa anywhere in Sarawak.

A state minister and a member of Taib’s Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu’s (PBB) supreme council said Perkasa “is not welcome in Sarawak”.

Contentious Perkasa had recently disclosed that they hoped to “get the same kind of support from Sarawakians” as they did in Sabah. (more…)

Stop Dr M before he burns M’sia, says Bishop

RK Anand

The vocal Bishop Paul Tan wants the government to act against the former premier and all those who stoke racial and religious tension.

Once the object of love and veneration but now hate and denigration, Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s constant outbursts have made him one of the most criticised individuals in this nation.

And even on Valentine’s Day, it is brickbats and not bouquets for the former premier.

Ironically, Mahathir who threw scores of people behind bars without trial on the basis of national security is now considered to be a threat himself. (more…)

Listen, even frogs have problems!

Iskandar Dzulkarnain 

It is sad that Perkasa chief Ibrahim Ali’s harmless rants on the burning of Bibles have caused so much misunderstanding, says the writer in this satirical piece.

Since Barisan Nasional lost its two-thirds mandate in the general election, attacks and insults against Islam have increased dramatically. Luckily, we have Ibrahim Ali to come to the rescue like a gallant knight.

A true champion of the human race and religion, Ibrahim is a rare and dying breed. Not a single Malay possesses his inhuman courage or the strength to uphold an entire race or the nobility of the religion.

Everyone pales in comparison to the one and only Ibrahim, who is capable of changing the course of Malaysian history. (more…)

Prosecute Ibrahim Ali over bible-burning call, Bar Council urges

Syed Jaymal Zahiid 

Authorities may opt to charge Ibrahim under the Sedition Act or Penal Code over the remarks, said Lim.

Perkasa chief Datuk Ibrahim Ali should be charged under the Sedition Act for his remarks advocating the burning of bibles, Bar Council president Lim Chee Wee said today, backing an similar call by an opposition lawmaker.

Lim said that although the Bar maintains the law deemed a political weapon to silence dissent, should be repealed, it must be impartially applied against Ibrahim given that authorities have charged opposition leaders under the same Act.

“If sedition charges were brought against Karpal Singh, equally charges should also be brought against Ibrahim Ali … Whilst the Bar calls for the repeal of the Sedition Act, if it were to be applied, it must be applied fairly and without discrimination. (more…)

Has PM forsaken Christians over Bible-burning threat?

Malaysiakini

The call by Malay rights group Perkasa for Muslims to burn the Bahasa Malaysia version of the Bible has stoked the ire of various quarters who question Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s inaction on the matter.

Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo said Najib could no longer remain silent on Perkasa president Ibrahim Ali’s call, which the DAP leader deems “criminal in nature”.

He went on to call on Najib to prove his sincerity in telling Christian Malaysians last month that the government has “not forgotten” them. (more…)

Bishop raps Ibrahim Ali’s ‘burn Bibles’ statement

Terence Netto

Catholic Bishop Dr Paul Tan Chee Ing is appalled by Perkasa chief Ibrahim Ali’s statement urging Muslims to burn Bibles that use the term ‘Allah’ for God, describing it as “an incendiary statement that far exceeds the bounds of civil discourse in Malaysia”.

The head of the Catholic Church in the Malacca-Johor diocese, Bishop Paul Tan, said that now that Ibrahim’s “incendiary remarks are in the public domain, let’s wait and see what the authorities will do about it”.

“If there is going to be any point to that slogan ‘1Malaysia’ then this is the time when we can see for ourselves if the concept is mere sloganeering to win votes or an earnest of the government’s desire to unite the people in all their diversity,” argued the prelate. (more…)

White ang-pows: Should the Chinese "Love Najib" when he won't even chastise Ibrahim Ali

Wong Choon Mei

In a move to protect his newly-launched Chinese credentials via the much ridiculed “Ah Jib Gor” Facebook page, Prime Minister Najib Razak moved quickly to distance himself from the latest fiasco brought about by bungling Malay rights group Perkasa and its controversial founder Ibrahim Ali.

“Ibrahim Ali is an independent MP. As such the Chinese New Year function where white packets were distributed should not be seen as something that was condoned by the government,” Najib said in a posting on the “Ah Jib Gor” page.

The Facebook page was launched on January 16 in a bid to stem plunging esteem and popularity amongst the Chinese community. But it looks like Najib, who lost credibility to due to his ambivalence and weak hand on the government, will have to do more to convince the Chinese of his sincerity. (more…)

Ibrahim Ali and the Deathly Angpows

Pak Bui

Ibrahim Ali, MP for Pasir Mas in Kelantan, and president of the small Malay supremacy movement Perkasa, cuts an unfamiliar figure for most Sarawakians.

This is not a bad thing, since this ‘umno-friendly’ independent MP is among the lowest political life forms in the Malayan jungle. He represents Umno’s political orifice, through which a steady stream of racist rhetoric pours out. His prime motivation is to keep Umno in power.

Amidst this effluent, you may recall a pattern of typically silly, far-fetched publicity stunts.

There was the pledge to wage ‘jihad’ on Christians, as part of a preposterous fantasy of a DAP-Christian plot to take over the country. (more…)
