The Malaysian news portal The Malaysian Insider reported that on Monday night a group of some 600 Umno youth members on motor-cycles had turned out outside the PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat) HQ at Tropicana, P.J in a threatening manner ostensibly to protest against the alleged death threat UMNO Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin was said to have received.
The funny thing is why pick the PKR HQ? Did PKR send the alleged death threat against Khairy? Why would PKR do so? As things stand, PKR has their hands full trying to ward off all kinds of shenanigans against their de facto leader Anwar that it is really unwise for PKR to do such a silly thing as sending a death threat against the UNMO Youth chief himself of all people!
Saifuddin Nasution, the PKR secretary-general, was quoted in the report to have said that the group were shouting threats to burn down the PKR HQ and to harm both Anwar and Ambiga (the chairperson of the Bershih2 rally) if they went ahead with the march for free and fair elections on July 9th.
Lokman Noor, executive committee member of UMNO Youth, was quoted as admitting that he did lead the group but denied that they threatened to burn down the PKR HQ.
We gave strict orders not to touch the headquarters. We are not like them.
What is really funny is Lokman's comment "We are not like them". Really, has PKR burned down any building?
