Pasir Gu­dang Pas sup­ports move to sever ties with DAP

New Straits Times - - News -

MASAI: A group of Pas mem­bers held a peace­ful demon­stra­tion here yes­ter­day to show sup­port for the party’s de­ci­sion to sever ties with DAP.

More than 20 Pasir Gu­dang Pas di­vi­sional mem­bers held up ban­ners and plac­ards to ex­press sup­port for party pres­i­dent Datuk Seri Ab­dul Hadi Awang’s de­ci­sion to cut ties with DAP.

A spokesman for the group, Hairul Isa, 29, said Pas mem­bers would not ex­tend any more as­sis­tance to DAP and its po­lit­i­cal al­lies.

“We helped DAP dur­ing the last gen­eral elec­tion and we had more mem­bers than the com­bined mem­ber­ships of DAP and PKR.

“There will be no more help to DAP and we will only fol­low our pres­i­dent’s de­ci­sion,” he said in front of Masjid Al-Muha­jirin, where the demon­stra­tion was held.

This was the sec­ond demon­stra­tion in Jo­hor af­ter a sim­i­lar event was or­gan­ised by Pas mem­bers in the Ge­lang Patah divi­sion on March 10.

Hairul said the most im­por­tant mes­sage they wanted to con­vey was their sup­port for the stand taken by the party pres­i­dent.

He warned politi­cians from other par­ties that they should not be rude to the Sul­tan of Jo­hor and that they should not con­demn the Bangsa Jo­hor con­cept.

“We are sad be­cause they try to fool Mus­lims to sup­port a party which does not re­spect Is­lam.”

Hairul said Pas mem­bers were up­set with DAP, PKR, Parti Amanah Ne­gara and Parti Pribumi Ber­satu Malaysia which had kept on bash­ing Pas and ridi­cul­ing Hadi.
