Some 40 leading Muslim community leaders, intellectuals and religious scholars from around the world signed an open letter about the PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim.

In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

May Peace and Blessings be upon the Prophet Muhammad and his kin 

“ … [M]ake peace between them justly, and act equitably. Lo! Allah loveth the equitable. / The believers are naught else than brothers. Therefore make peace between your brethren and observe your duty to Allah that perhaps ye may obtain mercy.” (The Holy Qur’an, Al-Hujurat, 49:9-10) 

Al-Salaamu ‘Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu, 

We, the undersigned, believe the honorable brother Datuk Seri Dr. Anwar Ibrahim to be of the highest ethical and moral integrity, a devout Muslim and a devoted father and husband. He is universally recognized as an advocate for justice and fairness, and he has a long history of promoting Islam and championing Islamic ethical and charitable causes. 

“O ye who believe! Shun much suspicion; for lo! some suspicion is a crime. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you love to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Ye abhor that (so abhor the other)! And keep your duty (to Allah). Lo! Allah is Relenting, Merciful.” (The Holy Qur’an, Al-Hujurat, 49:12)

What is going to happen to all those poor souls who were late or missed the CLP at Universiti Malaya yesterday?

Tyson: How much damage would a few hundred, or even a few thousand, people demonstrating outside parliament have caused?

Compare that to the damage done by the roadblocks all around KL on Monday – ambulances couldn’t get to patients or get patients to hospitals quickly.

The sick couldn’t get to clinics for treatment and doctors couldn’t get to clinics to treat the sick.
