PAS will help Umno stay alive, but will not be in­flu­enced by it, party deputy pres­i­dent Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man said yes­ter­day.

He as­sured del­e­gates at the 64th Pas Muk­ta­mar that Pas would not be­come a tool for Umno, but might en­tice it to re­turn to the right path of Is­lam

“We will stand by our prin­ci­ples. We are very care­ful when forg­ing co­op­er­a­tion and we avoid be­com­ing tools.

“We are help­ing Umno from drown­ing.”

He re­sponded to MCA’s state­ment that Barisan Na­sional would be dis­banded if Umno and Pas were to of­fi­cially work to­gether.

“Pas has ex­isted for 67 years. The party fol­lows the laws of the coun­try. We have ruled Ke­lan­tan, Tereng­ganu and Kedah.

“We are not an ex­treme move­ment, but MCA’s only prob­lem with us is be­cause we carry the name Is­lam.

“We are pa­tient, but there are friends who left us.

“Is­lam will one day rule the world, not through ag­gres­sion and war, but with moral­ity.”
