PETALING JAYA: DAP vice-chairman Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim has asked Bersih organisers to "look at themselves first before pointing fingers at the police" for last Saturday's violence.
Tunku Aziz, who had spoken against the rally before it was held last week, expressed his unhappiness that the rally was hijacked by the Opposition.
“Bersih 3.0 organisers are not a group of angels descended from heaven who are completely blameless,” he was quoted in a blogsite The Mole.
“The Bersih organisers should accept that there are substantial elements within the rally from people whose intentions were to create havoc and cause chaos as long as it is possible.
“Instead of shifting all the blame on the police, they need to realise that they are at fault too. Besides, they are not a group of angels descended from heaven who are completely blameless,” he said.
Tunku Aziz, who was Transparency International Malaysia's founding president, said although he did not deny there were people who participated in Bersih 3.0 who genuinely sought electoral reforms and were expecting a peaceful rally, “but as evident, there were people who thought differently”.
“Bersih 3.0 lost control of their agenda because their agenda was hijacked,” he said.
