Akhbar New Straits Times memetik Rahim sebagai berkata perkara itu bukan kali pertama Nik Aziz mengeluarkan kenyataan seperti itu yang didakwanya "mengelirukan" rakyat.
"Beberapa tahun lalu, beliau berkata penyokong Umno akan masuk neraka dan sekiranya umat Islam mahu masuk syurga, mereka kena sertai PAS.
"Dia juga berkata Umno itu kafir sebab bekerjasama dengan MCA dan MIC. Tapi lihat PAS sekarang, mereka berpakat dengan DAP, sebuah parti politik yang menolak negara Islam," katanya.
Menurut Rahim, bila ulama yang dihormati seperti Nik Aziz mengisytiharkan tanggungjawab agama menyokong BERSIH, maka rakyat melihatnya satu kewajipan sekalipun kerajaan menyatakan perhimpunan itu melanggar undang-undang.
"Dia mungkin dikenali dan dihormati sebagai ulama sebab kelayakannya tetapi beliau hanya seorang political animal yang mahu mengekalkan kuasanya di Kelantan," katanya Rahim lagi.
Semalam Nik Aziz dilapor berkata keputusan Muzakarah Jawatankuasa Fatwa Majlis Kebangsaan yang mengharamkan perhimpunan yang menurut majlis itu bertujuan tidak baik sepertimana yang berlaku dalam perhimpunan 28 April lalu, dibuat hanya menggunakan "sebelah mata".
Sekalipun beliau bersetuju perhimpunan yang mencetuskan huru hara dan merosakkan harta benda awam adalah haram, tetapi berpendapat BERSIH 3.0 "bukannya bertujuan untuk mencetuskan huru-hara sebaliknya yang menuntut lapan perkara untuk membersihkan pilihan raya".
Mengulas lanjut, Rahim menggesa golongan muda supaya menyelidiki siapa sebenarnya penganjur BERSIH 3.0 dan tidak mengikutinya secara membuta tuli serta mendakwa rakyat melihat Nik Aziz sebagai "pelawak".
Sementara itu Lajnah Undang-undang dan Hak Asasi Manusia Pemuda PAS Kelantan memberi tempoh 24 jam kepada Rahim menarik tuduhan itu dan memohon maaf secara terbuka kepada Nik Aziz.
Pengerusinya Hisham Fauzi berkata kenyataan bekas ketua polis negara itu "jelas tidak matang dan bersifat fitnah".
"Sekiranya beliau didapati gagal menarik balik kenyataan fitnah tersebut, kami tidak akan teragak-agak mengambil tindakan mahkamah terhadapnya," katanya dipetik dari Harakahdaily,malaysiakini

'Bapa Anjing' calls Nik Aziz father of kafir...
Hardly recovered from its libelous claim made against an Australian senator last week, UMNO-owned English-language daily New Straits Times today blasts a headline which says Kelantan Menteri Besar Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat "is father of kafir".
"Nik Aziz is father of kafir," reads the headline, which appears in single quotes without mention of its source. A smaller sub-heading however informs readers that the statement has been made by former inspector general of police Abdul Rahim Noor.
Kafir, the Arabic word for 'infidel', is a derogatory term used to describe those who reject God. A narrative attributed to Prophet Muhammad explicitly warns Muslims against labeling fellow Muslims as kafir, saying the label would return to the accuser.
Rahim(left) is apparently peeved by Nik Aziz's argument defending those who participated at the mammoth April 28 rally for electoral reforms in Kuala Lumpur as fulfilling the Islamic obligation to enjoin good and forbid evil. Nik Aziz was responding to a statement Sunday by the government-controlled National Fatwa Council declaring anti-government demonstrations as haram (forbidden).
Rahim said the PAS Murshidul Am was misleading Muslims to believe that it was their religious duty to support Bersih 3.0.
In an immediate response, Kelantan PAS's legal bureau head Hisham Fauzi gave Rahim 24 hours to retract the statement or face legal action.
Last week, NST invited public anger when it used a fabricated statement to accuse Australian senator Nick Xenophon of being anti-Islam. The libelous story was also published on page 6.
Xenophon, who personally observed the events on April 28 and criticised the police's handling of Bersih 3.0 rally, has vowed to take legal action against the paper despite its apology.
'Father of dog'
Rahim (left), who resigned as the police chief in 1999, is best remembered for the infamous Black Eye incident involving former deputy prime minister-turned-parliamentary Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim.
Rahim said he "lost his cool" and delivered karate-like blows on a blindfolded Anwar who was detained at a cell in the Bukit Aman police headquarters on the night of September 20, 1998.
In comic exchanges with Anwar's counsel Karpal Singh at a Royal Commission of Inquiry set up amid public outrage over the 'black eye', Rahim claimed that he was provoked by Anwar who called him "bapa anjing" (father of dog). Karpal however pointed out that Anwar was blindfolded, and questioned if Anwar could have possibly made such remarks, unless he smelt the canine in the room.- harakahdaily
Former IGP calls Nik Aziz 'father of kafir'...
Former inspector-general of police Rahim Noor(right) has called PAS spiritual leader Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat as “the father of kafir (infidels)” for misleading Muslims to believe that it is their religious duty to support Bersih 3.0.
According to a report published by the English daily New Straits Times today, the former top cop said the Kelantan Menteri Besar was just another “political animal” who wants to cling to power.
“He may be recognised and respected as an ulama because of his credentials, but he is just another political animal who wants to maintain his power in Kelantan,” he was quoted as saying.
Rahim said when Nik Aziz declared that it was a religious duty to support Bersih, people would take it as wajib (compulsory) despite the government’s stand that the rally had violated the laws of peaceful assembly.
Hence, he called on young Muslims to investigate who were the real organisers of Bersih 3.0 and not just follow blindly.
“For Muslims who understand this, they see Nik Aziz as a joker nothing else,” he added.
Responding to Rahim’s statement on Nik Aziz, the Kelantan PAS laws and human rights bureau chief Hisham Fauzi demanded the former to retract his “the father of kafir” remark and tender an open apology to Nik Aziz in 24 hours.
“If he fails to retract the slanderous statement, we will not hesitate to take court action against him,” he was quoted as saying by the PAS organ Harakahdaily. Rahim (right) also told Malay daily Berita Harian that Bersih 3.0 was akin to Marxist tactics which involved political sedition and propaganda.
The tactics derived from Marxism, he said, includes the opposition’s action to damage national institutions by attacking the integrity of the police force; judicial system; and the Election Commission.
“To me, Marxist tactics were clearly used by this group. A good example was that Bersih 3.0 had been aggressively hijacked, which is a Marxist way, although it does not mean they are communists.
“However, the Marxist way of mobilising the masses is not less dangerous,” he said.
Another example of a Marxist tactic, according to Rahim, was the word ‘dog’ directed at the police force during the rally as it comes from the term ‘British dog’ used by communists in the past.- malaysiakini
