The answer is no, he did not. This is evidenced by the transcript of the interview he conducted with Radio Australia and the audio is available for streaming as well.
Those who know me will know that I am hardly a fan of the DAP at all. In fact, I am opposed towards them due to their secularist ideology and the Chinese chauvinist attitude displayed by some (not all) members. But on this issue, I will defend LGE because clearly he was maligned and what Bernama reported was clearly a lie. As Muslims, we should be just when upholding the truth, no matter the personal differences we may have with the person in question.
As the Qur’an implores:
“O you who believe…never let the hatred of others towards you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just, that is next to piety.” (Qur’an, 5:8)
I don’t expect UMNO retards to obey this injunction anytime soon. After all, they are the same people who would reject Islam at every opportunity that presents itself.
