PAS MUKTAMAR PASSES PROPOSAL ON MALAY MUSLIM UNITY
Unhealthy politics that harm religion, people and country must be prevented, says Pas Youth
THE 64th Pas Muktamar has passed a proposal to promote Malay Muslim unity in the country. It was one of six proposals passed without debate on the final day of the Muktamar at the Gong Badak Indoor Stadium.
Under the “people’s unity” principle, the Pas Youth Central Committee (DPPP) felt that unity should be further strengthened.
It said Pas needed to prevent unhealthy politics that could harm the harmony and future of the religion, people and country.
DPPP felt that there was a wave of change and awareness among the people towards politics and Pas needed to respond to it to lead the nation.
“The constitution states that Islam is the official religion of the nation, making it the decider for the continued harmonious development of the various communities in the country.
“DPPP understands that wrong racial and religious sentiments have invariably brought about disparity and misunderstanding, which must be avoided.
“We regret that there have been threats towards the nation’s pillars, which are Islam, Malay rulers, Malay reserve land, Malay language and citizenship, brought about by Pakatan Harapan, promoted by DAP.”
The Muktamar approved a proposal by the Dewan Ulama and Dewan Muslimat to defend the status of Islam in the country.
They said Pakatan Harapan had a soft approach towards threats against Islam.
“As Shia beliefs spread, deviant teachings and practices that are against Islam have been brought into Muslim society.
“They are spread via non-governmental organisations that claim to fight for human and religious rights.”
They urged the party leadership to be firm on the special rights of Islam, as enshrined in the Constitution, and called for action against anti-Muslim statements, including those that disparage the implementation of syariah laws.
“We want the government to resolve matters concerning the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community.”
Four other proposals passed without debate were the Task Force for East Malaysia, proposal to stabilise the Dewan Himpunan Penyokong Pas, recognition for religious schools and reinforcing Gagasan Sejahtera.
