Ibrahim warns Tengku Adnan, Nazri and Khairy

Perkasa chief Datuk Ibrahim Ali gave a stern warning today to three Umno leaders to stop criticising the Malay right-wing group or risk having their secrets revealed.

Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Mansor, Khairy Jamaluddin and Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz have been very vocal in condemning Perkasa for eroding Barisan Nasional’s (BN) support from among the non-Malay electorate.

The Pasir Mas MP said he knows the leaders very well and asked them to reconcile with Perkasa.

“I know that these three Umno leaders are not talking on behalf of Umno’s president. I can tell you who is Khairy Jamaluddin, Nazri Aziz, Tengku Adnan Mansor because I know their DNA. If I reveal their DNA then we will continue our fighting so let it stop here.

“Don’t be angry at them. Don’t be angry at the government. We are gentlemen. If they want insult then let them,” he told the audience during a Perkasa rally here.

Ibrahim questioned why the three consider Perkasa as Umno’s rival as it is only a non-governmental organisation and not a political party.

“On September 3, I met Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak at his office and talked with him for one hour. Two days later, the prime minister gave a statement asking no party to question the constitution and the social contract.

“However, Umno secretary-general (Tengku Adnan) released a statement, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Nazri Aziz also gave a statement and before that there was a statement by a black child, the Umno Youth chief (Khairy). They insult Perkasa for no reason,” he added.

He also denied Perkasa was working with Umno because the group has never formally met with the party.

“We have never met with Umno formally. I only met Datuk Seri Najib Razak as the prime minister and Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as the deputy prime minister because they are the government and do not represent Umno,” he said.

Khairy had raised concerns that BN would lose non-Malay support if it does not immediately disassociate itself from Perkasa.

The Umno Youth chief said there was a perception now to affiliate Umno with Perkasa, and this was “hurting” BN’s bid to gain non-Malay votes which severely dwindled in the last general election.

While Nazri had declared that the Umno did not support or recognise the Malay rights group, he said Umno was against any form of racism and that Perkasa’s ideals did not fit in the Najib administration’s focus on plurality and unity.
