Swearing on Quran by Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan …

… brought mixed responses from various political figures in Malaysia. Some agreed, some opposed to it claiming it’s a political tactic to degrade Anwar and possibly to kill his political career.

  1. Nik Aziz said that the swearing thing is not Islamic practice … 
  2. Abdul Hadi said it was totally political motivated.
  3. Of course Anwar totally rubbished it, claiming it was a desperate dirty tactic by BN to bring him down. Anwar also accused the police of forcing Saiful to do the swearing.
  4. Anwar’s wife, Azizah said that the swearing thing was done to bring down Anwar.
  5. Tun Dr Mahathir said the swearing showed Saiful’s intent to tell the truth. Mahathir also challenged Anwar to do the same thing (swearing on Quran) …
  6. Najib said it’s up to the public (Muslims) to perceive the swearing thing …
  7. Abdullah’s response? None yet … (I am wondering why Abdullah’s quiet about this. Or is he’s a late picker?) … 

Personally I agree to Mahathir’s opinion. I think it’s pretty clear who’s telling the truth and who isn’t. And I think Anwar should do the same thing to prove that he’s innocent. With his long twists since long time ago and his reluctance to swear on Quran made people curious whether the sodomy indeed happened or not …

Update:

Another things to consider to know who’s telling the truth and who’s twisting it …

  1. The first reaction of Anwar when the sodomy news broke was to hide in the Turkish embassy claiming death threat … Now instead of proving the death threat, Anwar has gone public to preach about the so-called conspiracy and political ambitions … so, whatever happened to death threat? 
  2. Quick response by Anwar’s wife, Azizah was to show a picture of Saiful with a VIP in Najib’s ministerial office claiming it was a proof that there’s a link between Saiful and the government (therefore validate a so-called conspiracy) … yet so far I never heard of anything to prove it. All I heard was a constant denial by Saiful that it wasn’t a political motivated case.
