It is flavourable to pander into the ‘market’ be ‘relevant’ even to the borders of contradict if not selling out one selves rather than uphold business philosophy and principles. This is very much how to define PAS’s incredible tolerance towards popularity nowadays.
PAS to allow non-Malays to contest on party ticket
Bernama • Apr 3, 13 11:18PTG
PAS will allow non-Malay candidates from its Supporters Club or Dewan Himpunan Penyokong PAS (DHPP) to contest on the party’s ticket in the upcoming 13th general election, according to PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang.
“The candidates from the DHPP are from the Chinese, Indian and Iban communities,” he told a press conference at his residence in Rusila, in Marang, today.
He said these candidates would be using the quota of 76 parliamentary seats to be contested by PAS, the number having been jointly agreed upon by the partners in the opposition pact.
Hadi (second from left, in photo) said the candidates from the DHPP and the party’s Dewan Muslimat (women’s wing) would be contesting in mixed-race constituencies in view of the DHPP’s positive response towards PAS.
The Marang member of parliament also said that if additional seats were given by its allies in the pact for PAS to contest, it was prepared to provide the candidates.
Hadi said the 76 parliamentary seats allocated to PAS, were 10 more than the number it contested in the last general election in 2008, in which it won 24 seats.
He said with candidates from the DHPP contesting, he was confident that the number of votes received by PAS from non-Malay voters would be a surprise and would have an impact on the outcome of the 13th general election.
The party also hoped that their candidacy would result in a wave of young voters backing the opposition, thus helping it capture some targeted states, he added.
Asked which seat he would be contesting, Hadi declined to reveal but said the announcement of candidates would be made soon.
Meanwhile, Hadi also said that PAS was willing to offer DAP candidates the use of its symbol if DAP is deregistered by the Registrar of Societies (ROS).
He said the move was made as the sharing of logo had happened before with the opposition parties in Sabah dan Sarawak, such as using the PKR logo.
“As reported by the media, action might be taken against DAP over its central executive committee election. If DAP is then not allowed to use its symbol (rocket), we are prepared to offer the use of the PAS symbol, he added.
In the 60s, PAS Ulamas narrowly define UMNO’s ‘infidelities against the principles of Islam’ when the nationalist party was working in a ‘power-sharing’ co-operation to govern Malaysia with Non Muslims via MCA and MIC in Alliance Party. Doesn’t matter the fact that all UMNO leaders and members then are 100% Malay and Muslim.
PAS then onwards sowed hatred against UMNO amongst fellow Malay-Muslims and perpetuated the ‘infidelity call’. The Amanat Hj Hadi issued by then a fiery PAS youth leader Abdul Hadi Awang at Kg. Banggol, Kuala Terengganu on 7 April 1981.
That, divided the Malays further. Especially in the Malay-heartland of Terengganu, Kelantan and Kedah where PAS members strated to practice un-Islamic rituals like ‘Two Imam prayers’ at State Government appointed clerics and refusal to eat meat slaughtered by UMNO members and visitation on fellow Muslims’ death etc.
The hatred was sowed further into attempts by deviant PAS militants to kill fellow Muslims and started an armed rebellion like the Memali Incident in 1985 and the recent revelation by Zainon “Cikgu Non” Ismail’s assassination attempt of then Fourth Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad in 1988.
Now, PAS pandered into the gluttony of the Oppositions’ ‘unholy-marriage-of-(in)convenience-between-backstabbing-strange-bedfellows’ wet-dream to wrest power at Dewan Rakyat and take over the Federal Government administration of Putrajaya. They are willing to work with Chinese Chauvinists DAP, who have time and again proven themselves to be anti-Islam and anti-Malay, to topple the UMNO-led-BN Federal Government which have proven to be the champion of Islam.
In the spirit of political partnership, PAS leaders compromised the philosophy and principles of Islam from being the ‘Champion of the statehood based on Al Quran and Hadiths’ and brought the concept of ‘State of Welfare’. This is on top of they conveniently shut a blind eye towards anti-Islam elements which Chinese Chauvinists within DAP have been antagonising the Malays, Islam and the position of Islam as the religion of the Federal Constitution.
DAP leaders provoked the majority Malay-Muslims with controversial issues such as belittling the struggle against apostasy cases, the vows ‘To make a Christian as the next Prime Minister and Christianity as an official religion of Malaysia’ at Red Rock Hotel, Georgetown on 5 May 2011, the prosetylisation party at Damansara Utama Methodist Church on 6 August 2011 and the more recent is DAP Secretary General Lim Guan Eng’s 2012 Christmas Day call for the Home Minsitry to ‘Allow the use of ‘Kalimah Allah’ in Malay bibles’.
PAS also dropped the call for ‘Hudud’, in favour of DAP.
Today, they are willing to allow DAP leaders to contest using the PAS ticket and symbol if the Chinese Chauvinist party is deregistered for manipulating the party CEC election results 15 December last year.
PAS leaders did not just compromised. They ‘Flip-Flopped’ against God, for their so called ‘Struggle for a statehood based on Al Quran and Hadiths’. Now, they sleep with infidels and anti-Islam antagonists and compromise on ‘Pluralism of Islam’.
