KUALA LUMPUR, June 28 — Datuk Ibrahim Ali called the Bar Council today a “bastard council” and accused it of playing double standards for attacking the Barisan Nasional (BN) government.
“They are hypocrites...I don’t respect at all the Bar Council,” said the Perkasa chief at a press conference today.
Ibrahim pointed out that the Bar Council had protested the burning of Bersih 2.0 chairman Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan’s pictures at a “So...the spirit behind this rally is to overthrow the government,” added the pint-sized Malay rights advocate. Perkasa gathering, but was silent on the burning of Interlok writer Abdullah Hussain’s images at another protest.
Ibrahim said Bersih 2.0’s rally for electoral reforms was a front for Pakatan Rakyat (PR)’s political agenda, pointing out that the coalition’s deputy chairman was PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu, while other PR politicians comprised part of the committee.
When pointed out that the independent polls watchdog had invited Barisan Nasional (BN) to join its rally, Ibrahim said: “That’s propaganda.”
Ibrahim also stressed that he did not oppose Ambiga because she was Indian, but because of her “evil” actions in becoming a shield for the federal opposition.
“They (PR) just want to confuse people by putting forth Ambiga, who is the former Bar Council president,” said Ibrahim, who raised his voice several times during the press conference.
The outspoken MP also lambasted Tan Sri Hasmy Agam, the president of the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam), for urging the Najib administration to allow Bersih 2.0, Perkasa and Umno Youth to exercise their constitutional rights to hold their respective rallies on July 9.
“He is a liberal who wants to fight for freedom, but what about responsibilities?” asked Ibrahim.

I found it very funny and could not stop laughing. - sorry if you are not able to get my beat Ibrahim Ali has started to beat left and right of everyone. It reminded me the days when Ong Tee Keat, a.k.a Superman OTK goes and whack left and right his rivals in MCA, including Chua Soi Lek but in the process got voted out and MCA puts a pornstar into being the president of the party.
Of course the Bar council finds whatever that the self-styled village champion by the name of Ibrahim Ali says today is an insult to the intelligence of law professionals there. But there was an accusation that says to overthrow the government is a misconception in the pea brain mind of Braheng. Instead, it can happen, only if the government is shooting themselves on their own foot, which is happening right now.
Then of course, he goes and whack Ambiga, by calling "evil", and then whacking Human Right commission team which has started to pick up the pacing on monitoring human rights of Malaysia (still in an abysmal record with latest being the 3rd degree style of interrogations and beatings of PSM activists in Penang police station). Boy, I must be wondering whether the heart surgery that he underwent last year has suddenly put him in a very active mode, but he'd be called a clown in the international level there.
They say that an iguna can be wild if provoked and this is true when Braheng Ali is pushed into one direction. Kelantanese people use to say this case "natang bewok" or lizard animal. Anyhow, just let him do his strut. It can be humorous sometimes and we should note that's he's the salt of the BN's soup pot. I do really wish to see more of his "wild out of control rants". I would really hope to see him out in the streets in his counter protest with him shouting in the bullhorn. At least it proves that UMNO is not able to put him in the line.
