New Straits Times today carried the following report: “Tsu Koon throws challenge to Kit Siang and Guan Eng on hudud”.
Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon, who is Gerakan President, “threw a challenge” to me and DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng “to make a formal stand on hudud, the Islamic law”.
Koh said both DAP leaders “had not made it clear whether they supported or opposed PAS’ stand on hudud or left the matter to the party’s national chairman, Karpal Singh”.
I am surprised by Koh’s statement, as he has got a Ph.D and having been Penang Chief Minister for nearly two decades, he should be more knowledgeable and literate than ordinary Gerakan and Barisan Nasional leaders and members.
I am therefore astounded that Koh could feign ignorance about our very clear stand on hudud as only stupid or low I-Q people or those with an ulterior agenda can claim ignorance, as what Guan Eng and I said about our stand on hudud cannot be clearer.
If Koh is genuinely confused about what I had said about hudud, I invite him to my Gelang Patah daily press conference at 11.30 am tomorrow and I will explain to him my stand on hudud and he could seek any clarification needed from me.
If he dare not turn up at my Gelang Patah press conference tomorrow morning, it is no surprise that he had been unceremoniously booted out as an elected representative in Penang after serving four terms as Penang Chief Minister.
He should also shut up on this issue.
