Anointing Annulment

Parti Islam SeMalaysia (PAS) in one the steaming course to divorce all ties, including the tahaluf siyasi (an Islamic entity working with a non Islamic entity) with PKR where the two parties, together with Chinese chauvinist DAP formed the Selangor State Government since March 2008.

ALOR STAR: Pas President Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang today reminded Muslims in the country to not play into the hands of the “enemies of Islam” who are trying to disunite them.

In his opening speech at the 63rd Muktamar here today, Hadi said Muslims, especially those who are active in politics, should hold on to the teachings of the Quran and Sunnah as guidance.

“What’s improtant is we don’t allow ourselves from being lulled to sleep, especially in this modern political (age),” he said.

The Marang Member of Parliament also expressed disappointment with “some Muslims” who allowed themselves to become tools of the “enemies of Islam”.

He said, the group only took in “bits of Islamic teachings” and allowed themselves to be used in an agenda to destroy fellow Muslims.

“Some Muslims get too excited to the extent that they didn’t realised that they are actually being used as pawns in a chess game that are led by people who have bad intentions against Islam,” he added.

Without naming any political parties, Hadi was believed that to be referring to Pas splinter party, Parti Amanah Negara (PAN) which is currently working together with Pas’ former ally, DAP.

Pas had ended its ties with DAP in 2015 after the latter condemned the Islamic party’s effort to table a Private Member’s Bill to empower the Syariah Courts.

In the meantime, Hadi said that in order to avoid disagreements, Malaysians should learn from Sabah and Sarawak about living harmoniously despite having diverse ethnic and religious groups.

He said, the people of Borneo have lived in unity and harmony for decades and know how to manage various ethnicities at their respective states.

“We realise that there are obstacles in achieving unity but our friends in Sabah and Sarawak have been doing this for a long time.

“This is something that we can learn from because living in harmony regardless of race and religion will help us improve in terms of physical and spiritual development.”


PAS President Dato’ Seri Hadi Awang’s stinging address to former coalition partners does not augur well, especially with PKR where PAS is still part of the Selangor State Government.

PAS’ slurs to be a hot topic at Penang PKR convention

ALOR SETAR: PAS may get a taste of its own medicine today when PKR leaders convene in Penang Sunday afternoon for its state party convention.

PKR leaders have grown increasingly upset over the belligerent tone coming from the PAS muktamar taking place in Alor Setar and their frustrations may boil over.

“Definitely our leaders will address the issue. We feel hurt. It’s unbecoming of them to say all that about us. We want to fight Umno and BN, our enemy is not PAS,” said Penang PKR information chief Dr Afif Bahardin.

Referring to PAS’ intention to break off ties with PKR, Dr Afif said no single party can make it on its own and that a coalition is needed to win.

Dr Afif, who is also Seberang Jaya assemblyman, said that PAS leaders should be addressing issues like the economy and social problems instead of attacking a fellow Opposition party.

Leaders scheduled to speak at the convention include president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar and secretary-general Datuk Saifuddin Nasution.

Azmin, who is also Selangor Mentri Besar, and vice-president Rafizi Ramli have also been singled out for criticism by PAS.

PKR leaders have been caught in a bind by the break-up threat that will affect the party’s prospects in the general election and undermine the stability of the Selangor government.

Saifuddin has since challenged PAS to stop beating around the bush and resign from all posts in the Selangor government.

He pointed out that it was illogical and unfair of PAS to cling on to posts after they cut off ties with Pakatan Harapan.

PKR chat groups have also poked fun of what is happening at the Islamist party’s muktamar.

When a PKR member asked about the venue of the PKR convention, one of them had replied that it would definitely have air-conditioning, a snide reference to the power breakdown at the PAS Dewan Pemuda muktamar on Wednesday.

The PKR state conventions are taking place ahead of the party’s national congress next month.



This is very apparent with the opposition against PAS’s intention to increase the penalties of all matters under the Syariah Crime Act in the process of tabling RUU 355 in the Dewan Rakyat of late.

PAS had given the chance of formally working with DAP and PKR. However, it is proven that DAP had no intention at all to contribute in the betterment for Muslims and the agenda for Islam, despite the stature of the religion of the Federation of Malaysia as per define in the Federation Constitution under Article 3.

President Hj Hadi also stresses the fact that DAP had consistently opposed anything pertaining Islam, which is the religion and legal definition of the Malays, the majority race of Malaysians.

That is in his definition, “Not respecting the will of the majority”. This is by far the most stern position that President Hj Hadi displayed since breaking away all relationship with DAP two years ago.

On that score, PAS had not given up the ideology of championing the cause for Islam and not glutton for the sake of political expediency.

President Hj Hadi also made it clear that the party will not work with Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad’s Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, for its inconsistencies.

The relationship between PAS and Pribumi Bersatu ended on 20 March 2017 when Dr. Mahathir announced to join Pakatan Harapan.

PAS shuts the door on Pribumi

ALOR SETAR: PAS has shut the door on any political cooperation with Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Pribumi), which it deems as “rudderless”.

PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang (pic) said that the party had evaluated Pribumi and decided against forging any cooperation with them.

“We have assessed Pribumi and they seem rudderless without any clue as to who is leading the party or who is following them.

“PAS has decided not to have any relationship with that party,” he told reporters after opening the 63rd muktamar here Saturday.

 Abdul Hadi was responding to a question on PAS’ view of Pribumi and whether there would be any political cooperation.

In February, PAS announced that it was holding talks with Pribumi and was working towards forming a political framework for the 14th general election.

Pribumi has been courting PAS in an attempt to avoid three-cornered fights during the polls.



PAS recognises the fact that Pribumi Bersatu has got no strength and would not value add to the political agenda. Especially Dr. Mahathir in desperation announced that they are formally working with DAP and PKR.

PAS is also very sore with former Pakatan Rakyat coalition partners PKR and DAP for forging relationship with PAS splinter party PAN and forming Pakatan Harapan.

The fact is that PAS contributed the much needed machinery and grassroots support for the Malay votes in areas where PKR and DAP contested. Without PAS, the ‘Political Tsunami’ on 8 March 2008 would not have happened.

It is a landmark point in Malaysian political history where Opposition took over control of State Governments of Selangor, Perak, Pulau Pinang and Kedah.

The reaction of DAP Secretary General Lim Guan Eng on the development within PAS and President Hj Hadi’s address would wedge the probability thinner of the two parties working together and parties standing by the Chinese chauvinist party.

It would be seen as adding insult to already the hurting heart.

The political divorce is expected to be announced tomorrow, would pave the path for PAS to work with parties that are proving themselves worthy of moving the Muslims and Islamic agenda forward.

UMNO would be in better position to strike a working formula with PAS, after the divorce. Prime Minister Najib and the nationalist party already demonstrated the magnanimity  for putting the agenda for the better Muslims ahead of politics in more than a few instances.

The more recent example is RUU355, where UMNO MPs stood by PAS in the Dewan Rakyat debate.

Many amongst the Malay-Muslim majority hoped that UMNO and PAS work formally together, for the betterment of Muslims and Islam, which is religion of theFederation of Malaysia. It is obvious it is a more probable political manoeuvre against Pakatan Harapan.

  1. This will be the second utterance of the talak after a long trial separation.

    The first marriage had Ku Li as the third wheel. Couldnt consummate to bear babies.

    This one bore PAN, but likely be out of wedlock child after the seperation. Mustapha Ali could be fooling around with Teresa Kok 🙂

    Hadi is not well and expected to undergo heart op. Pas and Dap have only one more chance to marry aggain.

    If they still could not and ended up into a third divorce, Pas will have to marry other chinese party, consummate the marriage and divorce again before they could have another go at Dap.

    Other chinese party will likely be a better wife than the crude, stubborn and conniving Dap of hokkien and foochow. Pas should look for a cantonese wife.

    For the Malays, forget Dap …. Thus forget all other Dap poodle Melayu including Anwar and Mahathir.

    Melayu vote should only go with UMNO or PAS. It split the parliament into UMNO, PAS, DAP and Sabah/Sarawak.

    Dump the rest … More stability than cocophony.

  2. […] delegates also echoed President Dato’ Seri Hj Hadi Awang attacks on DAP, for what being described as “The betrayal and utter disrespect  against Islam which is the […]
