PKR lawmaker challenges party leaders over ‘Allah issue’
PETALING JAYA: A defiant Zulkifli Nordin has issued a fresh challenge to his party leaders. He says he will continue talking about the “Allah” issue despite a gag order.
This is despite a warning from PKR leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim of stern action against the Ku**lim-Bandar Baharu MP if he continues to make me**dia statements about the matter.
Immediately after the PKR political bureau issued the order yesterday banning party members from making statements on the use of the word “Allah” by non-Muslims, Zulkifli declared that it was limited to his police report against PAS Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad over the same matter.
He said as a Muslim, he had the right to speak his mind on the issue.
“No one can stop me from defending Islam,” he said when contacted.
On Friday, Zulkifli lodged a report against Khalid for sedition for saying that the Selangor Non Islamic Religion (Control of Propagation Among Muslim) Enactment 1988, which forbids other religions from using the word “Allah”, was out-dated.
