Salahuddin was reported by Malaysiakini here as saying that he never called for the use of ISA against council members.
The Kubang Kerian MP denied he had called for Bar Council chief Amiga Sreenevasan’s arrest under the Internal Security Act.

"If the government thinks there has been any wrongdoing (by the Bar Council), there are other ways to arrest the problem," Salahuddin clarified today (Tuesday).
"But I'm not in favour of using the ISA against anyone," he reiterated.
Salahuddin also claimed that he was wronged in the portrayal of his role last Saturday.
He said he was not there to disrupt the proceedings and merely there to ensure that "matters did not go out of hand".
"When I realised that other Muslims would be attending the forum, including PAS and other Islamic NGOs, I joined in.
"However, my attendance was to ensure that PAS supporters did not become unruly and cause any problems," he added.
Forum title not apt
Salahuddin was nevertheless apprehensive of the forum's title and said it was misleading and had caused confusion to the public.
"They should have worded it better instead of calling it ‘Conversion to Islam'," said Salahuddin.
He also suggested that future similar forums should be held behind closed doors.
"I appreciate intellectual discussions but they should not make it public. They should also invite more PAS, muftis and other Islamic scholars."
Another Pakatan Rakyat coalition MP, Zulkifli Noordin, who was among the key players in the demonstration, has since gone missing.
Family, friends and fellow parliamentarians from PKR have also failed to contact him since then.
However, the police have denied that the Bandar Baru Kulim MP was detained for his role in last Saturday's protest.
PKR deputy leader Syed Husin Ali had ticked him off for his role in the demonstration.
