When will DAP admit that they are unable to prevent PAS from implementing hudud if Pakatan wins the federal government?
PETALING JAYA: DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang and his son Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng should stop beating around the bush and state their stand on the implementation of the hudud law, said MCA today.
MCA vice-president Chor Chee Heung said DAP was always changing their stand on the issue.
“Previously DAP said that they will never cooperate with PAS, but today we see that DAP still continues to cooperate with PAS despite the latter’s insistence on having hudud law.
“PAS has repeatedly stressed that when Pakatan rules, they will implement hudud law.
“Their stand on this is consistent, and they have never changed their stand,” he said alluding to the current controversy over PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu’s alleged statement.
Chinese daily Sin Chiew Daily had recently quoted Mohamad Sabu as having allegedly said that the Islamist party will seek to amend the Federal Constitution to accommodate hudud once its in power.
Said Chor: “Despite DAP’s constant claims that Pakatan (Rakyat) will stick to the promises listed in their Buku Jingga and their common policy framework, Mohamad Sabu said that PAS will seek to amend the Federal Constitution in Parliament to allow the implementation of hudud law once Pakatan wins the federal government.
“This is because PAS does not respect Pakatan’s Buku Jingga and its common policy framework.”
Chor said PAS had pointed out that it is no longer a question of whether hudud should be implemented but how it is to be enforced.
“The PAS leadership has also made it clear that implementing hudud law in their main agenda, which is more important than DAP’s goal or even the common agreement between Pakatan parties,” he added.
Chor’s statement today comes a day after Mohamad Sabu had said he had been misquoted by Sin Chiew Daily on the hudud issue. However the Star today quoted two other PAS leaders – Kelantan PAS deputy commissioner Mohd Nik Amar Nik Abdullah and PAS national unity bureau chairman Mujahid Yusof Rawa – as saying that hudud remained in the PAS agenda
