Zulkifli said the report was regarding Khalid’s statement that a Selangor enactment which prohibited non-Muslims from using the word “Allah” and other Islamic terms as outdated.

Speaking to reporters after lodging the report at the Masjid India police station here, he said he wanted police to take action against Khalid.

On the differences between the two, whose parties are in the Pakatan opposition coalition, The Star newspaper today carried a report quoting Khalid as saying that during a recent discourse with Opposition leader and PKR de factor leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on the prohibition, Zulkifli had kept quiet while other leaders had expressed their views.

The report further quoted Khalid as saying: “There is an Arabic saying that the dog barks but the caravan moves on. I am not going to respond to his emotionally driven comments. I am just a caravan but I did not say he is the dog.”
