Gerakan Hails Umno Youth's Proposed Explanation Of 'Hudud'
Its chief, Tan Keng Liang, said Gerakan Youth would also use the session as a platform to explain to Umno Youth its stand against the implementation of hudud in the country.
"We are prepared to hear what Umno Youth has to say. At the same time, we also hope that they will listen to our views. We will respect any decision that is made afterwards.
"We wish to state that Gerakan rejects only the hudud proposed by PAS and does not reject Islam. We understand that hudud is part of Islamic teachings. We only want to express our views," he told a press conference at the Kedah Gerakan office here.
Tan said Gerakan Youth would resort to legal action if PAS wanted to go ahead with its intention to table a Private Members' Bill in parliament to implement hudud in Kelantan.
