“How does she know this? She’s asking for me to call her perempuan sial,” said the angry Perkasa chief yesterday, as reported by Malaysiakini.

When contacted, Maria (picture) said: "I don't want to comment."

Utusan Malaysia earlier reported that civil society members who met with Obama during his visit last week were spewing untruths about the country to the US president.

Defending Perkasa, Ibrahim, stressed that the non-governmental Malay dominated organisation is not an extremist one.

However, he thinks that Bersih is actually an extremist organisation for getting thousands of people to protest in the streets, referring to the Bersih rallies

Bersih 4.0 this year that was held in late August drew a great deal of negative comments from all pro-government members of the society

Talking about Obama, Ibrahim called the meeting that the US President had with members of Malaysian non-governmental organisations last weekend as a "psychological game against Malaysia", according to report by Malaysiakini

"The United States sees that Malaysia has issues so they use it. They have a list of anti-government NGOs so (Obama) meets them to scare the Malaysian government," he said.

He also questioned why Obama only met with "anti-government NGOs" and not the many more organisations in Malaysia.

"If the United States really champions democracy, it should have invited all sorts of NGO. Why not invite Angkatan Belia Islam (Abim) and Ikatan Muslim Malaysia (Isma)?" questioned Ibrahim.

"I wouldn't be keen even if Perkasa was invited, but the issue is, why so selective?"
