Why has MIC not chosen to quit BN as a protest against Umno’s decision to allow fast tracking of Hadi Awang’s Private Member’s Bill ?

Why has MIC not chosen to quit BN as a protest against Umno’s decision to allow fast tracking of Hadi Awang’s Private Member’s Bill ?


MIC president Datuk Subramaniam has called on Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar voters to reject Pas and Amanah candidates in the coming by-elections due to both parties championing “extremist religious policies”.

He also whacked the DAP, saying that we knew the real nature of PAS and yet, decided to play along with this dangerous game, purely for selfish political expediency.

I am surprised that Datuk Subramaniam cannot see the difference between Pas and Amanah. If they are both the same, why did Amanah leaders leave Pas?

It is expected of Subramaniam to have to whack the opposition when campaigning for the BN candidates, but he should be more truthful with what he said. He should not confuse or mislead the people with baseless remarks and attacks.

Before embarking on attacks against Amanah and the DAP , Subramaniam should first answer the following two questions:

1. Was it not Umno that allowed the fast tracking of Hadi Awang’s private member’s Bill in Parliament?

2. As the Bill, if passed , will pave the way for hudud implementation, why has MIC not chosen to quit BN as a protest against Umno’s decision to allow fast tracking of the bill?

If MIC is serious about opposing hudud as it claims, it should take the principled stand of quitting BN immediately. But it has chosen to stay on in the Cabinet and the BN coalition.

Yet MIC president could be so hypocritical to call on the people to support BN when it was Umno the BN’s big brother that has agreed to help Pas to realise its agenda of hudud implementation.

It is a fact that DAP has worked with Pas, but it was never for hudud implementation.

In fact, DAP has broken up with Pas twice over the issue of Pas’s Islamic state and hudud agenda. This is proof that we are a principled party that means what we say, unlike MIC.

In the Selangor government where Pas is represented, hudud is not and will not be an agenda. So Subramaniam should stop his baseless attacks against the DAP.
