Yesterday Malaysiakini reported Petrol bomb attack on Kok's home, where in an unprecedented incident, an unknown wannabe assailant threw two Molotov cocktails (spiked with nails as shrapnel) into Teresa Kok’s family home at the unholy hour of nearly 3 a.m.
Teresa’s family are living there. Her father recovered a threatening note full of vulgarities directed at Teresa. The coward sped away on a motorcycle after committing the crime.
Fortunately no one was hurt, as the petrol bombs didn’t explode.
Recently Teresa Kok has been painted as a chauvinistic anti-Melayu anti-Islam Chinese (additional horrors – she’s a woman too!) and accused of intimidating a Selangor mosque to tone down its broadcasting of the azan.
Despite the mosque authority coming out to clarify that the loud speaker in the mosque was not working, the unholy trio of the Umno-owned daily Utusan Malaysia, its senior editor Zaini Hassan and former Selangor menteri besar Dr Mohd Khir Toyo continue to target her as anti this and that.
I recall in the press conference after her release from the ISA detention, a reporter from Utusan Melayu asked whether she was prepared to take a lie detector test against the accusation she had intimidated the mosque authority into toning down the azan bradcast.
Yesterday when Malaysiakini reported the crime of which Malaysia had hitherto been fortunately free from (but no more), and whilst even BN leaders such as Gerakan Koh Tsu Koon condemned as a barbaric act, guess what Utusan Melayu reported?
Teresa kurang sopan pakai skirt di masjid!
It reported that Zakariah Isa, the Deputy Mufti of the Federal Territory criticised Teresa for lacking manners in wearing just a skirt while attending the breaking fast get-together with the imam and the members of the Masjid Nurrusaadah committee at Cheras Baru.
However, Zakaria Isa tap danced around a bit by also stating: "Mungkin juga Teresa baru balik dari majlis lain dan singgah sebentar ke masjid itu untuk memenuhi jemputan berbuka''.*
* Maybe she had just returned from a meeting elsewhere and on the way back, stopped at the break-fast to which she was invited
He chided the organisers too, that they could be a bit more responsible and anticipate the likely dressing of non-Muslim visitors and arrange a jubah (cassock) for Teresa to wear.
