We are not racist, Perkasa tells critics
It reminds me of the Liar’s Paradox in Philosophy 101: The liar said, I’m not lying.” Here we have Perkasa, a racist organization, saying, “We’re not racist.”
THIS IS WORSE THAN KISSING! The New Indian Welfare and Charity Association (Perinnbam) supports the stand of Perkasa: Can slaughter cows in school!
After earning flak from the Hindu community for defending the slaughter of cows in schools, Perkasa has found itself an Indian-based ally in the form of the New Indian Welfare and Charity Association (Perinnbam) which backs the Malay rights group’s stance.
“If the Malays want to do ‘korban’ (in schools), there is nothing wrong. After all, in the previous cases, the headmasters had discussed the matter with the Parent and Teacher Associations (PTAs) and the school staff.
“There is no need to politicise the matter,” said Perinnbam chief U Thamotharan during a Deepavali open house today organised by his association with Perkasa among its guests of honour.
Thamotharan (right in photo) said so long as precautions are taken, the issue of cow slaughters by Muslims in national schools should not arise.
Perkasa has steadfastly stated that Muslims should be allowed to conduct cow slaughter in national schools and any opposition to this should be taken up with the Malay rulers, who are the protectors of Islam.
IN THE USA, POLITICIANS KISS BABIES.
IN MALAYSIA, THEY KISS THE HAND OR CHEEK OF THEIR MASTER, MANDORE GROVELLING IN A PUBLIC ACT, AN ACT THAT HAS US CRINGING IN SHAME OR SEETHING WITH RAGE!
Will we see more of such groveling among our MIC brothers when they attend Perkasa’s Deepavali Open House?
Imagine kissing the man who kissed the keris!
NO, IT WON’T HAPPEN THIS TIME! SIMPLY BECAUSE MIC IS NOT INVITED. What a relief.
We are not racist, Perkasa tells critics

Perkasa president Datuk Ibrahim Ali today hit out at critics including online news portals for alleging that his organisation was racist.
“Accusations have been made against Perkasa claiming that we are a racist organisation. These are all lies and falsehoods spread by irresponsible quarters trying to divide the nation,” he said.
“I do not understand why certain online news portals carry statements issued by other parties against Perkasa. Perhaps they get more hits when they do that?”
In a rare show of solidarity with the Tamil community, Malay rights group Perkasa has urged Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to snub the Commonwealth gathering in Sri Lanka later this month.
This, Perkasa chief Ibrahim Ali (centre in photo) said, was to be sensitive to the feelings of those in the Tamil community who are offended by the persecution of their kin in Sri Lanka.
“The situation there is tense, Perkasa thinks it appropriate that the prime minister does not go and sends the foreign minister in his place.
“This is to take cognisant of the feelings of Indians who are unsettled by what is happening in Sri Lanka,” he said.
Ibrahim said this during a Deepavali open house by the New Indian Welfare and Charity Association (Perinnbam) in Gombak this afternoon.

Perkasa to hold Deepavali open house
But, their leader Ibrahim Ali says MIC and other political parties are not invited to the gathering.
PETALING JAYA: Perkasa stung by criticism that it is a Malay extremist organisation is now attempting to deflect this by organising a Deepavali open house tomorrow.
They have roped in the Malaysian Interracial NG0s Council (MIRAC). MIRAC is made up of Perkasa, Perinnbam and 1Malaysia Chinese Association (Percisama) and was formed in July this year.
“We are hosting the open house not to counter allegations that we are racist. We are doing it to show that we are a united multiracial coalition,” said Perkasa chief Ibrahim Ali.
The main event organiser is Pertubuhan Kebajikan dan Amal India Baru Malaysia (Perinnbam) and the open house will be held at 12.30 noon at the Sri Gombak Uptown open space in Sri Gombak, Selangor.
They are expecting a crowd of 5,000 people to join the Deepavali celebration.
Perkasa had hosted a Chinese New Year celebration bash last year. Its attempts drew flak from the community when Ibrahim gave away ang pows in white packets instead of red.
White ang pows are considered taboo by the Chinese community. About 300, mostly senior citizens attended the Chinese New Year celebrations in Kelab Sultan Sulaiman.
