Perkasa has found the controversial film Tanda Putera "has no racist elements" and was written based "purely on historical facts".
Its president Ibrahim Ali said these are the findings of vice-president Zulkifli Noordin who was given a recent sneak preview of the yet-to-be-released film.
"It is like speaking about Article 153 of the federal constitution. It's not racist, but fact. The film only depicts what actually happened," he told reporters today.
Ibrahim, however, could not confirm if there was a scene depicting DAP leader Lim Kit Siang urinating on the Malaysian flag, as was suggested on the film's Facebook page.
The posting was later removed by the page moderator, while Lim has vehemently denied the claim.
"I don't know, I didn't watch it myself," Ibrahim said.
A film on Anwar?
Ibrahim also said Perkasa is in talks with the film director Shuhaimi Baba to assist her in screening the film without any censorship.
He said that Perkasa is willing to host “premier screenings in every state” of the government-funded film which focuses on May 13, 1969 racial riots and the relationship between second premier Abdul Razak Hussein and then-home minister Dr Ismail Abdul Rahman.
Pakatan Rakyat had earlier sought a sneak preview of the film to see if it contains racist elements, claiming there was a hint of this in the trailer for the film.
Commenting on this, Ibrahim said PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim should stay true to his vows of openness, and not support censorship.
“I want to direct a film on Anwar soon if he doesn't stop poking his nose in this Shuhaimi Baba film,” he joked.
“After all, I'm a mass communications graduate.”
