Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 24.1.13

Cabinet should repudiate the irresponsible and unprofessional remarks by Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail that no action will be taken against Perkasa President Datuk Ibrahim Ali, for making the repulsive statement that the Malay version of the Bible be burned, with the flimsy excuse that the Bible had not yet been burned so where is the crime. Is the Attorney-General going to willingly let the Bible be burned first then only will he take action?

Has he not failed to do his duty to stop wrongful acts from happening?. Cabinet’s should direct Tan Sri Abdul Gani to act against Ibrahim Ali in the same manner they prosecuted DAP National Chair Karpal Singh for sedition to prove that there is no double-standards but respect for equality of the law in an impartial and fair manner. By failing to do so, Cabinet shows that it condones the Attorney-General’s refusal to act because BN continues to support Perkasa as a BN-friendly organization.

Why should Cabinet and Tan Sri Abdul Gani wait when there are also threats by some parties to have a Bible burning festival by distributing pamphlets to carry out such threats in Butterworth on this Sunday morning? The failure by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to immediately condemn Perkasa’s call to burn the Bible contrasts with PR leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim statement yesterday condemning such inflammatory statements.

Instead of questioning the loud silence and failure to act by UMNO, MCA president Dr Chua Soi Lek has chosen to blame me for instigating the call by Perkasa chief Ibrahim Ali to burn the Malay-language Bible and also refused to press that action be taken against Perkasa. This is a classic case of being framed up and being a scapegoat for another person’s wrongdoing.

Chua has shown that his true colours that he prefers to blame me or that action be taken against me when I talked the language of peace of harmony than act against Ibrahim Ali who uses hate and the language of violence against non-Malays and non-Muslims. DAP shall let voters decide whether BN and UMNO’s support for Perkasa is justified.
LIM GUAN ENG

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2013年1月25日在吉隆坡发表的文告:

内阁必须拒绝总检察长丹斯里阿都甘尼不负责任且不专业的言论,那就是将不会对土著权威组织主席拿督依布拉欣阿里采取行动,后者发表令人反感的言论,扬言要焚烧马来文版圣经,而阿都干尼所给理由根本站不住脚,他说“圣经还没被烧,所以哪来的罪案?”。难道总检察长是想让圣经被焚烧了之后才采取行动吗?

他没有尽责阻止错误行为的发生,是不是失职?内阁必须指示丹斯里阿都甘尼对依布拉欣阿里采取行动,正如他们起诉民主行动党全国主席卡巴星煽动一样,以证明他们没有持双重标准,而是在公平及公正地尊重法律平等。然而内阁并未这么做,更显示了他们纵容总检察长拒绝采取行动,是因为国阵继续支持土权为亲国阵的组织。

正当有一些单位在分派传单,威胁说要在来临的星期日早上,在槟城北海进行焚烧圣经节,为什么内阁及丹斯里阿都甘尼还要等?首相拿督斯里纳吉没有立刻谴责扬言要焚烧圣经的土权,与民联精神领袖拿督斯里安华昨日谴责此煽动性言论的反应,成了强烈对比。

马华总会长蔡细历非但不质疑巫统不采取行动及保持缄默,反而选择责怪我进一步鼓动土权主席依布拉欣焚烧马来版圣经,而他也拒绝施压对土权采取行动。这就是典型的“黑狗偷吃,白狗当灾”。

蔡细历露出了真面目,那就是他比较喜欢在我发表和平言论时谴责我;而不是谴责依布拉欣阿里对非马来人及非穆斯林使用憎恨性及暴力语言时。行动党让选民决定,究竟国阵及巫统对土权的支持是否合理。
