MCA President Says PAS Should Include Hudud Law In Manifesto
KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 4 (Bernama) -- PAS should include the Hudud law in its election manifesto and make it a common agenda for the opposition pact in the coming general election, spelling out all the details about the law, MCA President Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said Sunday.
"I would suggest, as a matter of transparency, that PAS include the Hudud law and its implementation, in their general election manifesto.
"And since they always say that they will never do anything without consulting their partners, I would suggest that it be made a common agenda of the opposition," he said.
Speaking at a forum on "Hudud and Its Implications on Non-Muslims in Malaysia" organised by the Institute of Strategic Analysis and Policy Research, here, Chua said the Hudud law would affect all Malaysians although PAS had claimed that it would not affect the non-Muslim community.
The panellists at the half-day forum comprised legal practitioners and government officers dealing with Islamic affairs.
Among them were the International Movement For a Just World (JUST) President Prof Dr Chandra Muzaffar and Religious Adviser to Terengganu Menteri Besar Mohd Kamal Saidin.
tunku : it is a brilliant idea. pas should include hudud law in it's election manifesto if they are really sincere in implementing it, otherwise all these while they have been fooling the muslims.this is their golden opportunity, do not waste it.
