Pakatan Will Not Implement Hudud Laws, Says Anwar

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 29 (Bernama) -- The Pakatan opposition will not implement hudud laws as called for by PAS because it is not in line with the common policies of the coalition, the Federal Consitution and their Orange Book agenda, said Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
He said the Pakatan leadership respected PAS stand on the issue but at the same time accepted the views of the DAP, which opposed hudud laws.
"We cannot deny the right of any party to voice out what it wants, but we are bound by a common framework and the Federal consititution," he told a press conference after chairing a meeting of Pakatan's leadership council at PAS' headquarters here Wednesday night.
Also present were DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang, DAP chairman Karpal Singh, PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) president, Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.
The meeting was called following PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat's controversial remarks that the party would implement hudud laws if it came into power.

tunku : so it's confirmed that pakatan will not implement hudud which means nik aziz only talk is just to fish for votes. pas had failed and is the biggest losers in pakatan.

Hudud is not the greatest threat to our nation. Like all Third World countries corruption is.

This is playing out as an emotional Red Herring aimed to put fear into the peple.
