…In Muar, several Umno branch leaders represented by Datuk Kadar Shah Tun Sulaiman Ninam Shah said Umno leaders should realise by now that the Malays, including those in Permatang Pauh, had lost confidence in Umno’s leadership.
He said they should accept the fact that they needed to adopt a more realistic approach if they wanted to regain the confidence of the Malays.
He said that one major reason for Barisan’s loss was the swearing on the Quran by both Saiful Bukhari Azlan and Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
He said Umno leaders should not allow the use of the Quran to resolve personal matters or to prove one’s innocence. “We are sad that the Quran has been used as a means to resolve personal and political matters.
