PKR leaders are furious when Britain’s The Mail on Sunday published, “Doomed Airliner Pilot Was Political Fanatic” on its front page.
The article stated that the missing MH370 pilot, Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah is “a political fanatic” and an “obsessive” supporter of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
It also reported that the pilot had attended Anwar’s trial at the Court of Appeal and could had been very upset over the court decision hours before he piloted the plane to Beijing.
The Star reported that Anwar rubbished the claims and blamed Umno for creating the perception.
PKR’s Fahmi Fadzil, Tian Chua, N. Surendran, Dr Afif Bahardin, Peter Chong and Datuk Abdul Malik Abul Kassim and PAS’s Suhaizan Kaiat also gave strong statements against the report.
I wonder why are they so ‘aggressive’ over the news when PKR are fighting for the freedom of press?
The report only said that the pilot is a political fanatic and an obsessive supporter Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim; well I’m sure he is not the only person who is a ‘political fanatic and an obsessive supporter Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’ – if not how could Anwar claims that a lot of people support him?
Anwar says that he wants press freedom in Malaysia and that overseas medias enjoy the press freedom, so now, why must he be furious and put the blame on UMNO?
Or is UMNO the owner of Britain’s The Mail?
