KUALA LUMPUR: Perkasa, the group claiming to champion Malay rights, is calling for a deputy minister to be arrested under the Internal Security Act (ISA).
In its newsletter Suara Perkasa to be launched today, the main agenda on the front page would be an article entitled “Tahan Ka Siong Bawah ISA” (Arrest Ka Siong under ISA), in reference to Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong, reported an online news portal.
The news portal, quoting Perkasa’s vice-president Dr Zubir Harun at a press conference here yesterday, said the movement wanted the Government to arrest Dr Wee because “Wee Ka Siong cannot say that Mara (scholarships) have to be reduced ... he is against the Constitution.”
It was previously reported that Dr Wee had asked if the Mara scholarships would also be scrapped in the Government’s intention to do away with overseas scholarships offered by the Public Service Department.
Dr Wee had since dismissed allegations that he was questioning the special positions of the bumiputra.
Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin had also joined in the fray by calling Perkasa’s chief Datuk Ibrahim Ali a political gangster.
At the press conference, Perkasa’s deputy president Datuk Abdul Rahman Abdul Bakar said Dr Wee should apologise for the Mara scholarship remark, otherwise Perkasa would ensure the Malays would not vote him in the next general election.
