PAS TO OR­GAN­ISE ‘MON­STER’ RALLY

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

PAS will hold a “mon­ster” rally to gar­ner sup­port for amend­ments it seeks to make to the Syariah Courts (Crim­i­nal Juris­dic­tion) Act 1965. Its pres­i­dent Datuk Seri Ab­dul Hadi Awang said the rally would also in­clude the par­tic­i­pa­tion of po­lit­i­cal par­ties, non-gov­ern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tions and nonMus­lim or­gan­i­sa­tions that sup­port the Is­lamist party’s cause. “God will­ing, PAS will or­gan­ise a ‘him­punan aman rak­sasa’ (peace­ful mon­ster gath­er­ing) rep­re­sent­ing Mus­lims from var­i­ous po­lit­i­cal par­ties and NGOs, in­clud­ing those who sup­port the Bill. Wait and see,” he told a press con­fer­ence at Par­lia­ment lobby.
