KUALA LUMPUR: De facto opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is duty bound to explain why he has not sued his former friend over allegations of an affair with the wife of a senior Parti Keadilan Rakyat leader.
Parti Kesejahteraan Insan Tanah Air (Kita) president Zamil Ibrahim yesterday questioned Anwar as to why he only chose to sue Senator Datuk S. Nallakaruppan for calling him a bisexual and not for the allegation of an affair with Azmin Ali's wife, Shamsidar Taharin.
"Many Pakatan Rakyat supporters seem to think that Anwar has taken legal action over allegations of the affair when in truth, he has remained quiet on that issue.
"Anwar's lawyers have also appeared unclear as to what allegation they are suing against," Zamil said yesterday.
He also urged Anwar to explain why he was so enraged by Nallakaruppan's statement that a bisexual was unfit to be a prime minister or an opposition leader.
"If he (Anwar) is innocent as he claims to be, then why was he so upset when Nallakaruppan made that statement? Does it mean he has something to hide?"
Zamil also sought an explanation from Pas spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat and party president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang as to whether they were agreeable for the constitution to be amended to allow a bisexual to be prime minister.
"Pas has been stating that it will amend the constitution to make Islam a way of life.
