Mat Sabu blamed for Seremban fracas

 | September 28, 2011

Negri Sembilan Perkasa says the commotion happened at the PAS dinner because of Mat Sabu's stubbornness.

SEREMBAN: Negri Sembilan Perkasa is blaming PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu for the commotion at a PAS dinner-cum-ceremah last Saturday.

Its secretary Alias Mohamad said two PAS supporters were injured because Mohamad Sabu, better known as Mat Sabu, had hurt the feelings of former army personnel by his alleged support for communists.

“There are many former army personnel in Perkasa who are hurt with his remark on Mat Indera, communists and Independence and what we want is just an apology. That’s all. But he chooses to remain stubborn.

“Of course, I regret that someone is injured and I do not agree with violent action but then when there were too many people, things could get out of control.

“The organiser initially agreed to let three of our members to meet Mat Sabu but then decided to allow only person to meet him. This made the crowd angry and things went out of control,” Alias told FMT here.

He also refuted allegations by one of the speakers at the ceramah that more than 100 Perkasa members who had staged the protest were paid RM50 each.

“This is a baseless allegation and there’s no truth to it. We are not against PAS but just to show our displeasure at Mat Sabu,” said Alias.

He also chided PAS Seremban chief MK Ibrahim Abdul Rahman for his allegations that Perkasa had pre-planned the violence that erupted during the ceramah.

“This is ridiculous. What is so difficult to get bottles of mineral water? Everybody is holding mineral water bottles and it’s openly sold at the tents near the location of the event,” he said.

Meanwhile, Ibrahim said Seremban PAS will invite Mat Sabu again for another ceramah session next month.
