PKR labels Perkasa ‘criminals’ for mosque attack
KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 4 — PKR today labelled the members of the Malay right-wing group Perkasa who had “attacked” a mosque in Alor Star as “criminals”.
The incident happened at the Al-Hussain mosque last Sunday when Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was giving a sermon (takzirah).
“This was a well-planned, carefully organised criminal assault,” said PKR vice-president N. Surendran (picture).
“Whether it’s a political speech or not is besides the point,”he said.
He was responding to the claims by Perkasa that Anwar was giving a political speech at the mosque.
“You can’t act in a criminal manner just because you’re not happy,” he added.
