M. Kula's media statement : Instead of accusing the DAP of interfering in matters related to Islam, Hadi Awang should himself understand the spirit and principles of the Federal Constitution and also accept the fact that Malaysia is a multi racial and multi religious nation

Press Statement by M Kula Segaran, MP for Ipoh Barat and DAP National Vice Chairman in Ipoh on 6th, June, 2016

Instead of accusing the DAP of interfering in matters related to Islam, Hadi Awang should himself understand the spirit and principles of the Federal Constitution and also accept the fact that Malaysia is a multi racial and multi religious nation

It was reported that PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang had yesterday, at a tea session with Chinese voters at Kuala Kangsar , accused the DAP of having interfered in matters relating to Islam.

He also said that while PAS supported good policies by the Government and only objected to what it believed were bad ones, DAP would oppose everything.

Hadi’s accusation clearly referred to the long standing disagreement and spat that DAP has with Pas on the issue of hudud implementation

Hadi’s accusation that DAP has interfered in matters of Islam is inaccurate and baseless as our opposition cannot be viewed as such.

DAP is not anti Islam or any religion. We accept and respect that Islam is the official religion of the federation.

Whilst we respect Islam and the position of hudud in Islam, our consistent position is that implementation of hudud laws is against the Federal Constitution and not suitable in a plural society like Malaysia.

Instead of accusing the DAP of interfering in matters related to Islam, Hadi Awang should himself understand the spirit and principles of the Federal Constitution and also accept the fact that Malaysia is a multi racial and multi religious nation.

Hadi must not ignore the fact that there have also been voices of objections from Muslim Malaysians on hudud implementation.

In fact, Hadi should explain why his plot with Umno to have his Private Member’s Bill to enhance Syariah system prioritized in Parliament was not a ploy to help Umno divert Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar voters’ attention from the 1 MDB scandals.

It is also wrong for PAS to accuse DAP as a party that will oppose everything.

It is PAS ‘s choice that it now wants to play a new style of politics , of being friendly to BN, of not making anti corruption its main political agenda though the people are still perplexed by PAS’s change of direction.

But it should not try to camouflage or justify its new change by attacking the DAP of opposing every government policy.
Could Hadi mention an example of a good policy which he thinks that DAP should support but has failed to do so?

While PAS is not keen to pursue the 1 MDB issue, DAP has been and will continue to make the Prime Minister and the BN government account for this mega scandal.
