Anwar Ibrahim, the leader of Parti Keadilan Rakyat has refuses to swear on Quran. And rightly so. Wallahi, Wabillahi, Watallahi is not applicable when there are civil laws, Police and the Court.
Swearing on Quran does not prove anything to the general public. Let the Police present their case in Court and let the judge and juries decide. That is what the Police and Court are suppose to do, determine who is right and who is wrong and to uphold the civil laws.
And if Anwar were asked to swear, should the public also asked Najib to swear on the Quran that he did not know anything about the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu ?

Anwar refuses to swear on Quran, will leave it to court
BUKIT MERTAJAM: PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is still refusing to swear by the Quran despite calls by various groups to clear his name.
He cited the same reason that he had been advised by ulama not to do so and to refer the sodomy charge against him to the Syariah Court.
“I insist on following the Syariah law and court,” he told reporters after visiting the Wanita PKR operations room at Sungai Semambu, near here yesterday.
“If I were to blast people with explosives, kill people, I swear I did not do it. How can this be (allowed)? It has to be investigated and the process of prosecution followed.
“Swearing is one thing, but investigations must also be carried out,” he said, in apparent reference to the swearing by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak that he did not know nor had any relationship with Altantuya Shaariibuu, who was murdered in 2006.
In his Permatang Pauh by-election campaign, Anwar had alleged that Najib had a relationship with the Mongolian woman.
Anwar’s former aide, Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, 23, had accused his former boss of sodomising him and had sworn on the Quran regarding his claims at the Federal Territory Mosque in Kuala Lumpur on Aug 15. – Bernama
