Perkasa boss Ibrahim Ali is up to his nonsensical antics again. This time he took to task SUHAKAM for conducting an inquiry into allegations that there was human rights violation by the authorities i.e. police against participants of the Bersih 2.0 rally. He wants SUHAKAM to explain “why it considered human rights violation to have occurred during the rally, when both the event and its organizers were deemed illegal by the government”. He further said that “by entertaining the complaints by illegal groups like Bersih 2.0, SUHAKAM has given recognition to other illegal groups as well”.
Now, can you not sense the stupidity of this Perkasa boss? Firstly, who is he to ask for an explanation from SUHAKAM pertaining to any investigation carried out by SUHAKAM? Secondly, does he not know that SUHAKAM was established by an Act of Parliament; as such SUHAKAM reports to Parliament (though some say that SUHAKAM reports to the government) on all outcomes of investigations carried out; not to individual(s) or an NGO like Perkasa. Thirdly, does he not know that it is incumbent upon SUHAKAM to investigate any report(s) that hinges on human right issues lodged by individual(s)/parties/bodies; regardless of whether such individual(s)/parties/bodies are deemed illegal or otherwise?
Yes, Bersih 2.0 was declared an illegal entity by the government, but that does not mean those involved in the rally that had their rights violated and abused by the authorities cannot lodge a report to SUHAKAM. On the contrary, those violated and abused persons have every right to lodge a report and it is incumbent upon SUHAKAM to accept and act (without prejudice) on the report.
Again I ask - who is this Ibrahim Ali to question SUHAKAM roles and responsibilities explicitly prescribed in the Act of Parliament. By posing such questions, Ibrahim Ali has questioned the integrity of SUHAKAM. And as far as I know, no government minister has posed similar questions to SUHAKAM. I think it is high time the authorities pulled up Ibrahim Ali for being so ignorant of an Act of Parliament and for making a mockery of him being a law maker himself. Now you see the level of knowledge that some our law makers inhibit.
Personally, I have had enough of Ibrahim Ali’s antics from the very moment Perkasa was formed. I see there is nothing that he does that contributes meaningfully towards the betterment of our multi racial society, other than igniting racial and religious sentiments to the detriment of our multi racial society. He thinks himself to be the ‘spokesperson’ or some kind of a ‘custodian’ of Malay rights, which is rightfully the responsibility of UMNO. Or is he now assuming that role and responsibility where UMNO has failed?
I say this and I will say it many time over that Ibrahim Ali’s antics and what he claims to be fighting for, is a serious bane to UMNO. UMNO cannot rely totally on the Malay votes anymore to win the next election. It is well known to all that Malay votes are now split asunder. UMNO cannot deny this and in order to win the next GE, they have to woo the support of the Chinese and Indian voters through their coalition partners that are themselves in disarray. I don’t think giving instant MyKad to ‘illegal’s made legal’ which the opposition has accused the government of doing, could be the immediate remedy to ensure the government remains in power.
Finally, what else need I say of Ibrahim Ali, but to just leave it to UMNO/BN to deal with the Perkasa boss the best they can?
