The Star Malaysia - - Nation -

KUALA TERENG­GANU: PAS is will­ing to meet MCA to al­lay its fears that the Is­lamist party is an ex­trem­ist party, said deputy pres­i­dent Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man.

The per­cep­tion of PAS as an ex­trem­ist party, he said, was not true.

“MCA does not have to worry about what PAS strives for in its pol­i­tics. PAS is not an ex­trem­ist party as per­ceived.

“We have gov­erned for many years and we are a reg­is­tered party that fol­lows the laws of the coun­try.

“PAS it­self re­jects any sort of ex­trem­ism,” he told re­porters at the clos­ing of the PAS 64th muk­ta­mar here yes­ter­day.

PAS, said Tuan Ibrahim, was will­ing to meet and have a di­a­logue with MCA to clear any doubt.

“We pre­fer hav­ing dis­cus­sions and we can do the same with MCA,” he said.
