A fired-up MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu has criticised DAP chairman Karpal Singh for turning into a “toothless tiger” by pledging DAP’s support for PAS in the Jan 17 Kuala Terengganu by-election.
He said Karpal Singh, who has been vocal on the Islamic state issue and hudud laws, appeared to have “surrendered to PAS.”
“Karpal Singh should be consistent in his stand (on hudud laws) and not become a puppet of PAS. His stand indicates that he and his party will give in and abandon their principles for the sake of ensuring a victory for the opposition candidate,” he said in a statement here Sunday.
Samy Vellu had challenged Opposition and PKR leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to publicly state his stand on PAS’ intention to pursue the implementation of hudud laws.
He said the DAP owed an explanation to the people, especially the Chinese community, on its conflicting views on hudud.
“Karpal should also not allow his credibility to be lost among Indian voters who voted for him in the last general election,” he said, calling on Karpal Singh to live up to his “lion” nickname given by his supporters.

Hahaha, what happen to GREAT Mr. Lion Heart. Correct me if I am wrong but I still remember the famous remarks from DAP’s leaders - ‘OVER MY DEAD BODY’ regarding this issue.
Another hahaha. Funny, why suddenly surrender now? Is it because of temporary cooperation for Kuala Terenganu by-election and decide to grudge later. Where is the famous stern stand and principle or now you just can’t bear the risk of PR breaking-up and losing the by-election?
By the way, where is your great Mr. Hero Anuar. What is his stand and consent about this matter or I supposed he is too busy with another date and frogging campaign. Hahaha, so if that’s the case then smart for him to hid himself rather than entangled with this delicate issue.
Aha, by the way, today I have found a new word from dictionary that is ‘PHONEY’ and is similar description of HYPOCRITE, BOGUS OR FAKE.
