DAP chairperson Karpal Singh was mobbed by a crowd of angry Umno Youth members at the Parliament lobby, wanting him to apologise for his remarks and accusation made against the movement yesterday. He called them 'Pemuda Umno celaka'(Damn Umno Youth).
Karpal was angry because he received a threatening note and two live bullets sent to his residence in Penang. Who wouldn't be? UMNO Youth, led by Khir Mohd Toyo and Khairy Jamaluddin, had tried to organise protests outside the veteran politician's residence in Penang and his office in Kuala Lumpur.
Earlier, Umno Youth deputy chief Khairy Jamaluddin challenged opposition stalwart Karpal, whom he described as an "arrogant MP who thinks he knows everything", to repeat his accusation outside of the Parliament building.
"DAP always talks of a world class parliament but their chairman behaves in a very uncivilised and rude manner," added the Rembau MP.
Khairy should ask himself the same question; is UMNO Youth behaving in a civilised and polite manner? Didn't Khairy's youth members send out the same chilling threats to Nizar in Perak?
In Malaysian politics, no one can claim to come close to UMNO Youth in mob politics.
The burden of proof is on UMNO Youth. Can Khairy safely say that UMNO Youth did not instigate the threats against both Karpal and Nizar?
What happened to the police investigation on these threats? Our public institutions must act fairly or risk losing public confidence forever. Politicians should not under estimate public opinion.
So, Khairy the "Chameleon" is back to his old self. Interesting. We do not need your double standards in ethics and morality. What's worse: UMNO Youth is not picking a same size opponent but a MP with physical immobility.
Shame on you!
