Perkasa Threaten to Chop Heads Off

Perkasa information chief Ruslan Kassim has threatened to "chop the heads off" those who "ridicule" Islam and the Selangor sultan. 

Ruslan was speaking at a rally in front of Istana Bukit Kayangan in Shah Alam on Monday to show thanks to Sultan Sharafudin Idris Shah for "defending the sanctity of Islam" and the actions of the Selangor Islamic authorities, i.e. MAIS and JAIS. 

"Sometimes, we need the blood of martyrs and we are willing to die to defend the name of Allah, God willing," he said to cheers from a cacophonous crowd of about two hundred fellow rabble-rousers. 

The rally was also to protest the call by four PAS parliamentarians – Khalid Samad (Shah Alam), Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud (Kota Raja), Hanipa Maidin (Sepang) and Che Rosli Che Mat (Hulu Langat) – for Selangor to amend laws to clip MAIS' powers. 

"Perkasa regards the action of the four MPs as rude, uncouth and discourteous in the context of Malay culture, what more it touched on the role and power of the Malay ruler as head of the Islam". 

And "it is apt that the four MPs be charged under the Sedition Act because their statement had impacted very badly on the Malay royal institution and belittled the role of Mais and Jais," Bernama quoted Selangor Perkasa chief Abu Bakar Yahya as saying after the rally. 

The Perkasa circus is putting up a grand show in Selangor! And that too in the name of Islam! 

In Group A, it seems that Brazil on Monday may have rediscovered their attacking flair when they overwhelmed Cameroon 4-1 at Brasilia's Estadio Nacional to qualify for the World Cup knockout stage.  

The Netherlands finished top of Group B with a 2-0 win over Chile in a tempestuous encounter in Sao Paulo. Both teams had already qualified for the second round after starting with wins over Spain and Australia. 

And Spain restored a wee bit of their pride with a 3-0 win over Australia – not that it made any difference to their World Cup fortunes.
