Ustaz Ramlang Porigi Revelation On Saiful’s Oath

The imam who witnessed Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan“s swearing on the Quran to accuse Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim of sodomising him has cast doubts on the oath.

Ustaz Ramlang PorigiWith less than a day to campaign in the Permatang Pauh by-election, observers noted that the Barisan Nasional“s strongest point of attack against the former deputy prime minister has been blunted.

This means the public confession by Ramlang Porigi, the imam of the Kuala Lumpur mosque, made in Permatang Pauh late last night has freed Anwar from having to take the same Quranic vow to prove his innocence.

Ramlang witnessed Saiful taking his oath on the eve of the Permatang Pauh by-election. Although Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has said it was not politically motivated, he has been demanding that Anwar take the same oath to deny any wrongdoing.

The PKR de facto leader has refused, and for that, he has been vilified by BN leaders as well as the mainstream media.

In front of thousands in Penanti last night, the imam, who said he did not arrange the ceremony on Aug 15, claimed he was directed by -a higher authority- to conduct the oath-taking ritual.

He added that the oath was not completely Islamic as both parties the accused and the accuser must attend. It was an ex-parte admission by Saiful.

When met by the press, Ramlang insisted that as a civil servant he is one of the nine official imams paid by the government to run the KL mosque he must obey the directives from his superiors.

Ustaz Ramlang Porigi dan Mohd Saiful Bukhari“My task was only to hear the oath and I had no part in the drafting of the oath which Saiful made. It is also unimportant for me so specify who.”

“I also wish to deny that I received any money to witness the swearing. I was only on instructions,” said Ramlang in a hastily arranged press conference by PKR at 12.30am this morning.

Also facing the media for the first time after the incident at the Federal Territory Mosque, Ramlang said that Saiful made two mistakes that day.

“During the swearing, Saiful mis-pronounced one of the Islamic words because he had it written down in Malay instead of Arabic.

Ramlang also revealed a Freudian slip by Saiful. “Saiful also made a mistake on when Anwar Ibrahim had allegedly inserted his penis into his rectum.

“Instead of June 26, Saiful said he was sodomised on Aug 26 before correcting himself,” said Ramlang at PKR headquarters, Yayasan Aman in Permatang Pauh.

Why did he have to be on a PKR ceramah platform to explain himself? Ramlang said he did not want to be blamed for conspiring with Umno, and the fact that no one in authority defended him.

He has been exposed as an Umno member registered as a voter in Penanti under the Permatang Pauh parliamentary constituency, which he later confirmed. He even asked the voters of Permatang Pauh to stop blaming him for having to do what was directed by the top people, and for that he received thunderous applause and chants of “Allahu Akbar” (God is Great).

PKR vice-president Azmin Ali, who leads the party”s campaign in the by-election, has denied rewarding Ramlang who came forward willingly.

Ramlang”s insinuation that Saiful was not all worried when taking his oath is expected to seen by many Malay voters as a signal that it was a false admission that”s what PKR campaigners are going to exploit today.

Anwar has refused to swear on the Quran despite calls by BN leaders, saying that many religious scholars advised him not to resort to it.
