update, 6 Feb/2 am: In defence of the Sultan of Perak.
Defiant Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin said last night he would fight till the last drop of his blood.
Who is the enemy, Nizar? Our Sultan?
I've written in my original article below about "Derhaka". With the defiance shown by Nizar, more Netizens have come out to caution the MB.
By far, the harshest critics are:
1) Pasquale, who writes here that Nizar has committed treason;
2) Aziz Hassan, who thinks Nizar's defiance is going to end in Emergency Rule; and
3) Jebat Must Die, who reminds Netizens of what Anwar had been saying about turncoats and defections recently in Anwar's playacting is encyclopedic! (Part 4) here.
Original article:PM Abdullah tells Pakatan to accept that Perak has fallen, just as BN had to accept the results of the general election last March/STAR
NST 05/02: Pakatan Rakyat to ignore Perak Sultan's request for MB and exco to resign, seeking second audience
NST 05/02: Police and FRU take over control of state secretariat building in Ipoh, exco members told to vacate their offices
Derhaka? I don't know. I am relying on info from friends and journalists on the ground. And there is an SMS "news alerts" war going on between the Star and the NST, Berita Harian and Harian Metro. I've compiled some of the "sms news alerts" that I have been receiving since before noon. Click here to read.
Bujai, in his sembah takzim, pleads with the Sultan to allow for fresh polls. We may disagree with him, but the way he does it is right and beradab, and that's still important. I would like to request for commenters to observe their adab when addressing the Sultan. Take the cue from Bujai, here.
I notice that some people profess Daulat Tuanku only when they want something out of the Sultan for themselves or for their agenda. That's low.
