KUALA NERUS: The 64th PAS general assembly today passed a motion for the party to spearhead efforts to ensure the political survival of Malays and Islam in the country.

The motion is aimed at further strengthening unity as well as curbing negative elements which could cause disharmony or detriment to Islam, the people and nation.

This was one of the six motions that were passed without debate on the final day of the assembly at the State Sports Complex’s Indoor Stadium here.

PAS Youth described the motion on the political survival as important because people were becoming more politically aware and this required the response of the party leadership.

Other motions passed were on efforts to defend the status of Islam in the country; the setting up of a working committee to empower the development of Sabah, Sarawak and Labuan; empowering the PAS Supporters’ Assembly and recognising certificates from tahfiz and religious schools.
