Chop heads just figure of speech, says Perkasa man
Under fire for threatening to “chop off” the heads of those who ridicule Islam and the Selangor sultan, Perkasa information chief Ruslan Kassim now claimed the remark was just a figure of speech.
Instead of decapitation, the fiery orator said that what he meant to say was to “kill” the political careers of four PAS parliamentarians – Khalid Samad (Shah Alam), Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud (Kota Raja), Hanipa Maidin (Sepang) and Che Rosli Che Mat (Hulu Langat).
The four had called for Selangor to amend its laws and limit Selangor Islamic Affairs Council’s (Mais) powers.
“I didn’t mean to say ‘pancung’ (chop off) heads, but to ‘pancung’ them politically, But the political part didn’t come out, and I accidentally said ‘pancung leher’ (chop off necks).
“We’re not sharpening our machetes, we love peace and harmony,” Ruslan said, jokingly chiding Malaysiakini for highlighting his speech.

Police report filed on Perkasa’s ‘chop head’ call
A police report has been lodged by the PKR Bayan Baru Youth wing against Perkasa information chief Ruslan Kassim for threatening to chop off the heads of “parasites” who ridicule Islam and the Selangor ruler.
PKR Bayan Baru information chief Mohd Aidil Fitri Ibrahim, who lodged the report, urged the police to probe Ruslan under Section 506 of the Penal Code for issuing criminal threats.
“Please act appropriately against Ruslan to guarantee the harmony of all races in the country,” Mohd Aidil said after lodging the report at the Bayan Baru police station at 4pm today.
“This is to ensure that rule of law is guaranteed and that no individual or organisation is immune to the laws of this country,” Mohd Aidil, who is also Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia Penang spokesperson, added.
“This is a country with rules of law. If anyone has committed a crime, he or she should be punished according to the law and not be punished by Perkasa or any other individual,” he said, quoting from a statement made by Bayan Baru MP Sim Tze Tzin.

Reject Perkasa’s ‘chop head’ remark, says MB
Malaysians, especially Muslims, should reject Perkasa’s “chop head” remark because it reflects thinking that is “uncivilised”, said Selangor Menteri Besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.
“It is clear that Perkasa’s threat is not beneficial and instead gives a negative perception towards Islam, which actually emphasises on brotherhood (persaudaraan), justice, harmony, mutual respect, and moderation,” he said in a statement today.
He urged all quarters to stop exploiting Selangor’s Bible issue for personal or political mileage, and respect the Selangor Sultan’s statement that the matter should be referred to the courts.

‘Chop off head’ remark offence under new bill
The threat made by a Perkasa leader to “chop off heads” of those who insult the Selangor sultan or insult Islam, will become an offence under the new National Harmony Bill that is slated to replace the Sedition Act.
National Unity Consultative Council (NUCC)’s law committee deputy chair Lim Chee Wee, who is part of the committee that drafted the bill, said today that the person who made the threat did so with “with clear intentions to cause harm to another individual” on the basis of race and religion.
According to Utusan Online, about 200 people from various NGOs attended the rally in front of Istana Bukit Kayangan, Shah Alam.

‘We’ll chop off heads of those who insult Islam’
A Perkasa leader has threatened to “chop the heads off” those who “ridicule” Islam and the Selangor sultan.
In a fiery speech, Negri Sembilan Perkasa chief Ruslan Kassim told those attending a rally in front of the Selangor palace for such “parasites” to “get lost”.
“If they continue to ridicule the religion and the sultan, we will chop off their heads.
“It is better they get lost, better they die, better they don’t live in this country than be a disease, a virus and a parasite on our religion, race and country,” he said.
Ruslan was speaking at the rally to show thanks to Sultan Sharafudin Idris Shah for “defending the sanctity of Islam” and the actions of the Selangor Islamic authorities.
This is in relation to the Selangor Islamic Affairs Council’s (Mais) refusal to return the 321 copies of the Bible seized by the Selangor Islamic Affairs Department (Jais) from Bible Society Malaysia.
