From 25/5/11

KUALA LUMPUR: Perkasa chief Ibrahim Ali is a “clown” and his statements should not be taken seriously, said Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz.

Nazri said the independent MP could be arrested and charged if his statements caused a riot in the country.

“To me, he is a clown. I do not think people should take seriously what he said. It has been 10 days since his statement and there are no riots. It shows society has matured,” he said yesterday at a press conference on the Public Service Depart­ment (PSD) scholarships.

He noted that remarks uttered by Ibrahim Ali were no longer regarded as sensitive.

“If society feels that something uttered is no longer seditious, who are we to say it is?” he said when asked to comment on Ibrahim’s recent remarks on starting a crusade against Christians.
