Indonesia former president Abdurrahman Wahid also popularly known as Gus Dur comment on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi today may not go down well to those in Putrajaya.

He said the Prime Minister “acts in one way and says another” commenting on the execution of Islam Hadhari.

Gus Dur also said Saiful act of swearing on the Quran was un-Islamic and there is no such requirement under Islamic laws.


Sleepy mode. Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi (left) and former Indonesia president Gus Dur (right).

“I challenge anyone to prove the reverse. They better open the law books of Islam.”

“I think the accusation of sodomy is wrong. I have known him for 15 years. I believe totally in him,” Gus Dur said at a press conference at the PKR headquarters here today.

Gus Dur stand on issue is clearly contradict Abdullah who opines that Saiful took the oath followed Islamic practice and law.

Kinda wondering why is the prime minister so adamant of sending Anwar back to Kajang – and goes as far as reminding anyone that Saiful was a victim in the issue!
