Yeah, yeah... it's Ibrahim Ali again. This time, he's calling for Ambiga S.'s citizenship to be revoked. What Walski would like to know: under what law?
This loud-mouth politician, plus his Perkasa crew, decided to not have a counter-rally. Neither did the silat proponents. Based on what was revealed on Malaysia-Today earlier, if true, their absence is not surprising, since their role was purportedly to instill fear, in hopes of dissuading Malaysians from participating.
Post-Bersih 2.0 rally, however, it looks like Ibrahim Ali continues the barking... Walski wonders if anyone's biting.
Ibrahim Ali wants Ambiga’s citizenship revoked
Datuk Ibrahim Ali wants Bersih 2.0 chairman Datuk Ambiga Sreenavasan’s citizenship revoked, saying she had committed treason against royal institutions when she went ahead with Saturday’s rally.

“Ambiga was already granted the opportunity to meet with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong but in the end, chose to defy his majesty.
“If this was Thailand, people like her would have been banished and stripped of their citizenships,” the daily quoted Ibrahim as saying in a press conference.
The Malay rights leader, who had chosen to stay home on the day of the rally, also claimed of reports that Bersih 2.0’s participants had been paid to attend the mass event.
