KUALA LUMPUR: The controversial Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin (pic) (BN-Kinabatangan) created a stir in Parliament Tuesday when he said those opposing the Sedition Act should be arrested and charged.

"Why are these group of people are so eager to get rid of the act?

"This shows that they have bad intentions.

"The Attorney-General should identify these people and charge them with sedition," he said Tuesday.

To this, Datuk Mahfuz Omar (PAS-Pokok Sena) stood up and said the Prime Minister himself had promised to abolish the Act.

The minor altercation occurred during the question-and-answer session when Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (PKR-Permatang Pauh) questioned the act and its impact on the country's democracy.
