Poor little bear,
Sitting in the sun,
His friends ran away,
And so left none.
He looked to his right,
He saw a black cat,
That made him wonder,
“Is that a bat?”
He heard some noises,
But he saw no one,
And then came his friends,
With plates of hot buns. 🐻 🐻 🐻
DAP’s Lim Guan Eng said that hudud can’t be implemented without consensus.
That was his respond to the Kelantan MB’s statement, saying that PAS will implement hudud laws in Kelantan.
The Star reported that:
The issue of Pakatan supporting hudud, he said, did not arise as DAP was against the implementation of the Islamic law.
He also said, “Pakatan’s position has not changed because DAP’s position in opposing the implementation of the hudud has not changed.”
Lim pointed out that the opposition pact’s common policy platform and its 2013 General Election manifesto did not mention the implementation of hudud.
He added that neither did it make any mention of the setting up of an Islamic state.
This, he said, had been agreed to by PAS, DAP and PKR – STAR.
Opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) leaders especially its deputy president, Mohamad Sabu always says that DAP’s Lim Guan Eng understands Islam better than UMNO’s Muslims leaders.
So what will PAS’s leaders say when LIm Guan Eng speak out his stand on the hudud issue?
Are they going to blame it on UMNO as another UMNO’s conspiracy?
