PETALING JAYA: PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang has claimed that there are certain quarters who have “enslaved” the judiciary and courts to sideline and belittle Islamic laws.
He said it was therefore forbidden for Muslims to support these groups.
“And it is compulsory for Muslims to oppose them,” he said in a Facebook post.
He said PAS and Muslim NGOs, as well as the Malay rulers, would not allow such “extremism” to continue.
Hadi, however, said the current situation could not be compared to the time the Islamic party were allies with DAP under the then opposition coalition, Pakatan Rakyat.
He said PAS’s alliance with DAP then had only involved matters in which they shared similar ideals and it never touched on the Islamic faith or policies.
In 2015, DAP severed ties with Hadi after the party accused the latter of pursuing the implementation of Islamic criminal laws without consulting its allies.
Hadi went on to say that his party would not be “bought over” despite the success achieved in the 1999 general election where it won 27 seats with the help of DAP.
“We also rejected better offers after winning the most seats in the 15th general election.”
PAS won 49 seats in the last nationwide polls.
