KUANTAN: PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang today said he would dissolve the party if any of its members were proven to be involved in immoral activities, adding that it is only right to reject such leaders.

“Members of the media, please report that PAS rejects any immoral political leaders,” he said in his speech at the Youth wing’s 60th muktamar here.

“If any of my members were like this, I would resign and dissolve the party.

“For us, morals are the core of the party. We do not want to say names, but ‘siapa makan cili, dia rasa pedas’,” he added, using the popular Malay proverb.

Hadi added that PAS would not hesitate to dismiss any leader found to be involved in immoral activities, “not like parties that think matters of morality can be taken lightly, more so when they are involved in such activities”.

“Only those who are willing to face challenges from all sides can be together in this fight,” he said, adding that PAS endeavours to adhere to Islamic principles and does not separate politics from Islam.
