Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has indicated that he will take a trip to India after the court verdict Monday.
"Insyallah (God willing), my wife and I will leave for Mumbai after the court delivers its decision in the morning," the Opposition leader said at his ceramah in Kampung Gaung, Kuala Berang here Saturday night.
Anwar said his next stop after Mumbai would be Turkey where he would give a talk on "Islam, Freedom and Justice" on Jan 12.
The Turkish government, he said, had invited him to do so.
Speaking to reporters later, he said it did not matter whether he was found guilty or not on the sodomy charge at the Kuala Lumpur High Court "as long as Pakatan Rakyat can take over Putrajaya."
Pakatan's victory in the next general election was more important than his own freedom, he said.
"I am confident that we can take over Putrajaya with the support of all the component parties in Pakatan.
"With the latest development in politics, I am optimistic about Pakatan's prospects of winning (the election). Whether Anwar is guilty or not is a secondary matter," he said.
