I feel sorry for the Pasir Mas voters who voted in this monster of a person without any sympathy for those who are not as lucky as him. This is the malady of those voted in for office, once in, they show their true colours, and Ibrahim Ali you are no exception. I am sure there are disabled people in Pasir Mas who crossed their votes in his favour, and if they knew his antics would curse him. But then the elected people think, I am already in and nothing can change my position in the next 4 or 5 years. Many people have failed in this, as the election result showed, your sins or omissions are remembered with the advent of blogs and the Internet.

Assuming he was carried away, or to quote our Home Minister Hamid, throwing ideas, towards Karpal Singh, and today clamouring to show love for the disabled, from the bottom of his heart, would any disabled person believe him. It would be needless to say they don’t. I am not here supporting Karpal, but what Ibrahim feels and thinks, is quite ludicrous. All people who are disabled for one reason or another, stick together. They are comrades in arms. Whether it is Karpal or any other disabled person the attack he made in Parliament affects every person who has a deficiency. So he can’t hate Karpal and love others. Something is missing here.

I should suggest MADD continue to make this monster understand the seriousness of his utterance, get together offer him roses to show your love to a person who despise you. There is no better punishment.

What if you are disabled one day, who can tell, my only hope this does not happen to Ibrahim.

KUALA LUMPUR: A commotion broke out in the Parliament lobby Thursday when Datuk Ibrahim Ali (Independent – Pasir Mas) stormed out of a meeting with a group of disabled people demanding for his apology to Karpal Singh at the Parliament lobby at noon.

The group, known as Malaysians Against the Discrimination of the Disabled (MADD), urged Ibrahim to retract insulting statements he made against Karpal recently when he asked the latter to stand when speaking in Dewan Rakyat.

Ibrahim had apologised to the group initially for hurting their feelings over the remarks he made in the Dewan Rakyat to Karpal.

However, he refused to say sorry to Karpal.

“My problem was with Karpal Singh and never with all of you. I have never offended you and I love disabled people from the bottom of my heart.

“But if you all have misinterpreted my meaning, I extend my sincerest apologies.

“I hope you don’t misunderstand this because there are groups trying to take advantage of you,” he said, referring to several Pakatan Rakyat leaders, Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Lim Lip Eng, Loh Gwo Burne, Gobind Singh Deo and others, who had escorted the group into Parliament.

Ibrahim even added that he would propose that the Government allocate a RM500 monthly allowance to the disabled. This was greeted with cheers.

A huge spat soon ensued, however, when Lim Lip Eng (DAP – Segambut) questioned Ibrahim if he would offer a similar apology to Karpal Singh.

To this, Ibrahim shouted: “No! No! No!”

“I will not apologise to Karpal. You cannot force me. I will not apologise for the benefit of the Opposition party,” he retorted, and stormed off from the meeting.”

In response, the group shouted back at him: “What if you are disabled one day?”

A representative from MADD later handed over a memorandum to Opposition Leader Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

Last week, Ibrahim critised Karpal for not standing up to speak when Bung Mokhtar and Karpal were engaged in a heated exchange of insults in the Dewan Rakyat.
