Karpal: Wrong for Hadi to say DAP leadership accepts Syura Council's decision on Allah issue

GEORGE TOWN: It is wrong to say the PAS' Syura Council's decision regarding the Allah issue is well received by non-Muslims, including DAP's leadership, said DAP national chairman Karpal Singh.

 Karpal told a press conference here that he was disappointed with PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang's statement to this effect. He was commenting on a news report quoting Hadi as saying the prohibition on non-Muslims from using the "Allah" word in their holy books was settled and that the DAP's top leadership had also accepted the explanation on the matter given by PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat during a brief meeting with him (Karpal Singh) in Penang last Monday.

Karpal stressed that nothing was discussed regarding the Allah issue when he met with Nik Aziz at the informal meeting. He said the Syura Council should not stick firmly to its stand as it conflicted with the stand taken by Pakatan Rakyat which is made up of the DAP, PAS and PKR. Karpal added that the DAP was not meddling in the internal affairs of PAS but instead was upholding a stand which had already been taken by PR.

tunku : it's obvious that pas leaders are great time liars.
