That's best to describe Pakatan Rakyat state assemblymen in Perak when they came in all black during the opening ceremony of the Dewan Undangan Negeri by Sultan of Perak on Tuesday.
They did that for one reason - protesting the arrest of few friends under the Sedition Act 1948, and in solidarity with their jailed leader Anwar Ibrahim.
However, they offended His Majesty, who skipped the photography session with all ADUNs.
IPOH, April 1 (Bernama) -- Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir said the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Nazrin Shah, was offended by the antics of the opposition assemblymen who attended yesterday's opening of the Perak legislative assembly session in black attire.How do Perakians say it? 'Kuang hajor!'.
He said that following the disrespectful behaviour of the opposition elected representatives, the sultan did not attend the photography session and reception after the opening.
"As a ruler, it is not easy for the sultan to express his unhappiness but we understood what the sultan implied and there is no need to ask if he was offended or not," he told a media conference at the state assembly today.
Zambry said that yesterday was a historic day for the sultan as it was his maiden appearance at the assembly as the 35th sultan of Perak, and he was in his official royal attire to have the event recorded for the national archives.
"The historic day for the ruler and leaders was marred by the antics of the opposition. Even though they pledged their undivided loyalty and apologised to the sultan, the damage has been done," he said.
Apart from that, Zambry said, the action of the opposition in wearing all black as a symbol of protest and solidarity for Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had angered the people as it had marginalised the real issues.
"I consider the incident as reflecting their true attitude and they did not show any remorse over their arrogant and ill-mannered behaviour.
Sentiments aside, they shouldn't had done that. It was an insult to their position and belittling the Sultan's presence.
However, this is what Pakatan Rakyat is made of!
