KOTA BARU: Mentri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat has slammed the media for excessive coverage of the sodomy allegations against PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
He said the reporting has turned to shaming him over the allegations and questioned why Anwar was front-page news when he was arrested while his release was reported in inside pages.
“Why must the media take pride in shaming him? Anwar is a human being and not an angel or devil.
“He is a Malay Muslim so I asked why must there be a concerted effort to shame him in the front pages of the media,” he said in his weekly sermon here.
