Puad offers to buy sultan’s painting depicting MPs as apes and frog

Hebahkan !!!

PETALING JAYA: Umno Supreme Council member Puad Zarkashi has offered to buy the painting that depicts MPs in the Dewan Rakyat as apes and frogs bought by the Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah.

Puad said he would buy the painting from Sultan Sahrafuddin, which currently hangs in the sultan’s private study room, if the ruler planned to auction it off one day.

“If the painting is mine, it will not be sold any more. I will give it as a gift to Muzium Negara to put it up for public viewing,” said the Rengit assemblyman in a Facebook post.

The sultan’s purchase of the painting generated a lot of buzz after the Selangor palace posted several photos of it.

The palace said the painting had attracted the sultan’s attention and that he planned to auction it one day and donate the proceeds to charity.

While the painting drew a positive response from many social media users, former religious affairs minister Mujahid Yusof Rawa said it went against Islamic teachings.

The Amanah vice-president said that as a Muslim, he was against such political satire as the Quran had prohibited name-calling and looking down on people.
