“Tok Guru Nik Aziz pun tarak faham Islam sekarang. Ustaz Hj Hadi Awang pun dah tatau. Dia ikut saja”. That is what Opposition Leader and Ketua Umum PKR Anwar Ibrahim said to Sabah Chinese community a few days ago.
The full story is here.
Anwar, being his usual self, would say different things to different sets of people. As long as he can continue to mesmerize them at that moment of time to support him, even with the means via deception or back-stabbing his own political coalition partners.
The most controversial issue at play is the ‘Kalimah Allah’, especially in literature such as Malay bibles. PAS as coalition partners to PKR and DAP said it is unacceptable. It is a real slap in the Oppositions’ face, on top of other fundamental issues such as sale of alcohol near the mosque in a Malay centric suburban, prosetylisation of Muslims, PAS’s need to reinvigorate Hudud and the more recent ‘Unisex saloon’ and ‘Khalwat’, both in Kelantan and being imposed against the Chinese.
All of these are biting back hard at the Opposition and a clear demonstration that they cannot agree even on fundamental issues. And as the 13GE is very much round the corner, Anwar who is the only element that gels the highly fragmented PKR together and DAP and PKR are able to sit as partners in a coalition, had to resort to his usual lies, twisting of facts, manipulation of sentiments and playing with emotions.
More now than ever.
People like this shouldn’t be trusted for anything and everything. They are not just untrustworthy. They will stab you in the back whenever you turn the other way, for the pettiest short term gains. And they will sell even their own mothers for a whiff of political pleasure.
