Remember Kulim-Bandar Baharu MP Zulkifli Nordin?


While the heat is on UMNO's Ahmad Ismail, do you still remember what PKR's Kulim-Bandar Baharu MP Zulkifli Nordin did at the Bar Council forum on Article 152?

In a dated news report, Zulkifli said he had received a phone call from PKR advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, telling him to campaign in the Permatang pauh by-election. He said Anwar had also told him he "understood" his reasons for being at the forum.

A reporter friend of mine who was at the Permatang Pauh by-election told me earlier that it was unlikely for PKR to take any disciplinary action against Zulkifli. She was spot on.

Zulkifli argued that he was there as an Exco member of Pertubuhan Peguam Pembela Islam (Organisation of Lawyers Defending Islam) and not as a PKR MP. Similarly, Ahmad can say that he made the remark as a Malay ultra and not as a division leader of UMNO.

Before the by-election, Anwar said his party will be mulling an action against Zulkifli. It is only right we ask him if he still remember his promise?

PKR was expected to discuss action to be taken against Zulkifli for his behaviour during the protest. Party deputy president Dr Syed Husin Ali had said a show-cause letter would be issued to Zulkifli after the polling day in Permatang Pauh on Aug 26.

What's next?

Why are demanding an apology for an actin that does not really matter to the person making that statement. Are we just trying to be proud that we can demand such an apology for our own benefit. An individual action, and that of his party sometimes differ.

Zulkifli, states that he was there as that of the NGO he represented. And should Ahmad says that he was there as a 'malay ultra', then that is as much as you can do.

However, what matters most is, anyone opening up their 'BIG MOUTH' through their words and/or action shall be responsible for that action and unfortunately will somehow drag the organization they represent.

Malaysian will always have to accept that it is going to take time, before we can really truly agree that we are one, although we are of different background, race and religion.

All we can do is work at it.

Kay Peng,

Keep on highlighting it until someone there makes a comment.

They are playing the old trusted strategy of keeping quiet. After a long time people will forget after getting tired like a mad dog barking.

With your high profile and rapport with the Pakatan people, get them to act, especially Lim Guan Eng.

I am of the view that Zulkifli Nordin should be responsible for his action. He should admit his wrong graciously, no other way out.

At the same time, I have confident that PKR will act fairly on him, and there will be no 2 standards applicable to different persons.

If not, I will be disappointed.

Any racist from both sides of the political divide must and should face the music.

As a nation we must learn to live, talk and act in a non-racist and colour blind manner.

Anwar, the PM-in-waiting should take action against Zulkifli. Otherwise, Anwar is no better than a NATO - No Action Talk Only.

What is sauce to gander is also sauce for the goose.

Anwar - Show us that u r really Bangsa Malaysia and not a wolf in sheep's clothing.
