Hudud laws anyone?

Nik Aziz sure knows how to trump his fellow party leaders. His statement on suggestion that hudud and gisas laws to be used by a merged UMNO – PAS. As reported in Malaysiakini, MCA was the first one off the blocks to oppose this suggestion. This was stated by its Youth secretary-general, Wee Ka Siong. The deputy education minister has described Nik Aziz’s idea as “totally unacceptable by MCA”.

I am disappointed and gravely concerned with Nik Aziz’s statement to implement hudud and qisas laws as it would mean the creation of a theocratic Islamic state.

I urge Umno to object against PAS’ proposal as it is a matter of principle.

So far, Gerakan and PRS (Parti Rakyat Sarawak), two small parties in the coalition had come out with statements that cautions the UMNO-PAS discussions.

Have to wait another few days for MIC, but its politicians who blog already have something to say. Check out Murugesan‘s blog. Not sure about Saravanan.

    This is obviously Nik Aziz’s tactics to derail UMNO-PAS talks. He knows very well that UMNO will never agree to Hudud nor its BN partners would.

    Funny thing is that he never made this pre-condition when PAS joined PR….hahahahaha….

    You what is my take ? Nik Aziz is not a genius by any means so this idea would have come from DAP most likely.

    BTW, I am surprised so many people are worried about PAS and UMNO talking. But there was hardly a murmur about DAP and PAS joining up. In fact many Chinese and Indians voted for them in the GE. So if people can accept PAS in PR, why can’t they accept PAS in BN right ?

    In any case PAS re-joining BN is impossible. But at the same time, I don’t think PAS will remain in PR for long. Its members (outside Kedah, Selangor and Perak) are unhappy about being treated as junior partner and selling its soul to DAP and Anwar.
