Kulim Bandar Baru MP Zulkifli Noordin must be a man wearing many hats or many masks. After barging into the Bar Council forum, which he has now denied, and having earned the reputation for being the loudest protestor, he is now telling us that he was there as an exco member of Persatuan Peguam Pembela Islam, and not as an MP. Even his party has deemed fit to send him a show cause letter for his outrageous behaviour but he is now telling us that having explained to PKR whip Azmin Ali, his explanation has been accepted.
During his disappearing act, he must have spent time coming out with this defence line. But lawyers and reporters present at the forum knew he was part of the Umno-PKR-PAS combo that created a big fuss at the forum. Bar Council secretary Lim Chee Wee regarded Zulkifli and the others as "aggressive, refused to sit down, stood in the centre of the aisle, glared at activist Dr Mehrun Siraj, who was speaking." Wonder what Zulkifli will tell his constituents of various races and faiths when he goes back to his kawasan?
