PAS delegate slams DAP, warns of ‘second Singapore’

Selangor PAS delegate Roslan Shahir Mohd Shahir says DAP is a reincarnation of the late Lee Kuan Yew’s PAP.

PETALING JAYA: A PAS delegate today labelled DAP as a reincarnation of the late Lee Kuan Yew’s People’s Action Party and warned of the possibility of Malaysia becoming a second Singapore.

Selangor delegate Roslan Shahir Mohd Shahir said Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) win in the last general election has given prominence to DAP which, he said, has never prioritised the interests of Malays and Islam in their struggle.

“DAP has now become very influential and dominant in PH. We in Selangor have all the experience, having been in government with them for two terms.

“In the obsession by PH to bring Najib Razak and Barisan Nasional down, and to reject PAS, the ones who have emerged and are now in power for the first time are from a party which is the reincarnation of the late Lee Kuan Yew’s PAP,” he said in his debate on the president’s policy speech at the 65th PAS Muktamar in Kuantan, Pahang today.

Roslan said DAP’s agenda has placed the rights of Malays on the wayside, adding that its Malaysian Malaysia agenda seeks to abolish all forms of social contracts and make things equal for all Malaysians, without any special privileges for Bumiputeras.

“Malaysian Malaysia is an antithesis to a Malay Malaysia. The DAP agenda is to separate religion from government administration. Their promise is to maintain the Federal Constitution as one that is secular.

“In this short period, our status quo has been eroded. The ratification of ICERD and the Rome Statute, which thankfully did not materialise, are all their work.

“(They also include) efforts to recognise the UEC, additional allocations for vernacular schools, including private ones, disputing the powers of the Malay rulers, reviewing the Islamic education curriculum, and giving rights to the LGBT community.

“The most unfortunate of these is to appoint a religious affairs minister who bows to DAP,” he said, adding that “this is the danger when DAP comes into power”.

Roslan said the Malay PH leaders were more concerned with when the next prime minister would take over.

“Both Malays and non-Muslims have come to our rallies. They have shown their open protests through the Cameron Highlands, Rantau and Semenyih by-elections, where BN candidates defeated PH candidates by huge margins.

“They are waiting to see what is next in our political cooperation. To them, it is the best formula that can bring PH down and propel a government with integrity and one that defends religion and race.

“Let us not disappoint them,” he added.
