TALKING POINT: Allegations on the mind of many people, says ex-PKR official
KUALA LUMPUR: FORMER Parti Keadilan Rakyat Penang Wanita chief Aminah Abdullah has called for an explanation regarding the relationship between PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar and Farah Afifah Azmin as it is understood under hukum syarak (syariah law).
In her statement yesterday, Aminah said the women's mothers, PKR president Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and Shamsidar Tahrin, wife of PKR deputy president Azmin Ali, should hold a joint press conference to explain the matter.
"This will help clear the question persistently playing on the minds of many people," she said.
Aminah was referring to allegations made by Senator Datuk S. Nallakaruppan that Shamsidar once had an affair with opposition leader and Nurul Izzah's father, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
Aminah said the matter needed to be answered as many people were now of the view "that PKR is a party of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transsexuals and free sex".
She said many within PKR were talking about this but were too scared to voice their opinion for fear of being sacked.
She added that PKR's political struggle was only a mask as its real struggle was over the sexual lust among its leaders.
Aminah said PKR was only promoting seksualiti merdeka (sexual independence).
Dr Wan Azizah and Azmin could not be reached for comment.
