Advise party chairman: PAS tells DAP

 | August 21, 2012

PAS Youth leader Nasrudin Hassan Tantawi does not want Karpal Singh to rock the boat.

PETALING JAYA: PAS Youth leader Nasrudin Hassan Tantawi wants DAP to advise its national chairman Karpal Singh on the issue of hudud which is proving to be a thorn in DAP – PAS relations.

“I recommend that DAP advises Karpal not to dispute the hudud law to take care of Muslims’ sensitivities and the good relations among Pakatan Rakyat members,” he said via Twitter.

Nasrudin’s comments followed Karpal’s statement that the burden of proof in hudud was harder than current criminal laws in the country.

The dispute was sparked off on Thursday by PAS’ former deputy president Nasharuddin Mat Isa who accused Karpal of being anti-Islam for opposing the hudud law.

This prompted Karpal to contemplate a legal suit against Nasharuddin.

Other PAS leaders such as central committee member and Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad defended Karpal for acknowledging the party’s right to pursue the Islamic state agenda on its own.

Meanwhile, Nasrudin also did not want MCA to oppose and dispute hudud law.

“PAS Youth is disappointed with MCA which is opposing and disputing hudud,” he said.

Nasrudin said this in light of Selangor MCA chairman Donald Lim’s announcement during the Selangor MCA convention on Saturday.

Lim vowed to stop Selangor from becoming an Islamic state.

“MCA will continue to defend the interest of the Chinese and will not let Selangor become an Islamic state.

“This will also not happen in any state and nation administrated by BN,” he had said.
