PAS Made Another U-Turn

PAS’s Fadli Ghani made a statement saying that PAS wants ‘ketuanan Melayu’.

Insider 8

Everybody knows that UMNO fights for ‘ketuanan Melayu’ while PAS has always been against it and for that reason, they accuse UMNO as ‘assobiah’.

In fact, PAS’s spiritual leader ( Musyidul Am PAS), Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat said that UMNO does not follow the Prophet Nabi Muhammad S.A.W. because UMNO fights for the Malays.

And even PAS’s president said that UMNO is assobiah for fighting for the Malays.

There are articles like Nik Aziz: Tiada Istilah Ketuanan Melayu Dalam Islam by Malaysia Today, Ketuanan Melayu: Nik Aziz Pohon Raja-raja Melayu Selesai Guna Al-Quran by TMI and others stating PAS’s stance against ‘ketuanan Melayu’ that UMNO fights.

But suddenly, a PAS youth leader Dr. Fadli Ghani said that PAS fights to protect the ‘ketuanan Melayu’ while UMNO is fighting for the Malay Rights and not for ‘ketuanan Melayu’ as what was reported by The Malaysia Insider (TMI).

This is the first time I heard that it is PAS who fights for ‘ketuanan Melayu’!

Is Dr. Fadli Ghani confused or is PAS making another U-turn?

He went on to say that PAS always wants to make Islam the official religion of Malaysia, unlike UMNO who makes Islam the religion of the Federation of Malaysia.

Dr, Fadli claims that as Islam is stated in the Federal Constitution of Malaysia as the religion of the Federation of Malaysia, that makes Malaysia a secular country!

Katanya, apabila Islam disebut sebagai agama Persekutuan dalam Perlembagaan, maka ia secara tidak langsung menjadikan Malaysia sebuah negara sekular. “PAS berpegang Islam mesti menjadi agama rasmi supaya Islam boleh ditegakkan secara adil. “Umno berpegang Islam menjadi agama Persekutuan dengan maksud negara ini berpegang kepada keduniaan atau negara sekular,” katanya. – TMI

Is Dr. Fadli Ghani really, really confused about these issues or is he trying to spin facts to confuse other people about the meaning of a Secular State?

Article 3(1) of the Federal Constitution says that:

“Islam is the religion of the Federation; but other religions may be practised in peace and harmony in any part of the Federation”.

And because Islam is the religion of the Federation, it means that Malaysia is an Islamic country as what PAS claims what it is fighting for.

I wrote a few post on why Malaysia is not a secular country; please read,  “Gobind Singh: Malaysia Is A Secular State – Another Fairy Tale?” and Is Malaysia A Secular State?

A very senior lawyer, Datuk Hj Naser Disa said that if Islam is only the official religion of Malaysia, that means Malaysia has other unofficial religions; having more that one religion means Pluralisme of Religion which is against the teaching of Islam.

So how could having Islam as an official religion is more Islamic than having Islam as the religion of the country?

Does PAS leaders really want Malaysia to be a Secular State when at the same time the same leaders tell their supporters that they are fighting for an Islamic State?

Is this another U-turn by PAS?

Politicians must not talk on the subjects that they do not understand and they must learn from lawyers who are expert in Constitutional Law like Uncle Naser Disa and Dr. Shamrahayu A.Aziz before speaking on topics related to Constitutional Law.

So, PAS has sacked YB Nasharudin Mat Isa from its Majlis Syura Ulama.

KL Pos reported that the PAS’s Majlis Syura secretary, Datuk Nik Zawawi Nik Salleh said that the decision was made during a meeting on January 13, 2013 which was chaired by the PAS’s Mursyidul Am, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat.

PAS claimed that YB Nasha went against the party’s rule.

A lot of PAS’s leaders are not happy with Uncle Nasha because Uncle Nasha does not agree with PAS’s un-Islamic ways and ideas.

Well, now I wonder will PAS finally sack Uncle Nasha from the party before the 13th General Election?

Nasharudin Remains A Syura Council Member: Is PAS Scared?

“Nasharudin remains a Syura Council member… the issue was not discussed,” Haji Hadi Awang told reporters after the Pas Syura Council meeting last night. Why did the PAS president made the above statement when last month he said that the YB Nasharudin Mat Isa issue would be one of the topics to be discussed at the council meeting?

PAS was furious when YB Nasharudin told the party to leave the Pakatan Rakyat after DAP’s Karpal Singh’s statements against hudud and Islamic state. Lots of PAS, PKR and DAP leaders want YB Nasharudin to be sacked. So, why did PAS made the decision not to sack him?

Was it because PAS is afraid that people might not like PAS anymore? But can PAS be able to keep YB Nasharudin quiet and not making any statement against PAS and PR on issues like the use of the word Allah, LGBT, Liberalism, Pluralism, murtad and others? And will YB Nasharudin stop making statements against Karpal Singh?

NST reported that Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, the spiritual adviser of PAS, left the Syura Council meeting after just 30 minutes and the meeting was chaired by Haji Hadi instead of Nik Aziz. Did Nik Aziz left early because he is against the decision not to sack YB Nasharudin?

I hope that YB Nasharudin will be strong and keep on fighting for Islam and will not be influenced by what is happening in PAS now. I hope he will not be like most of the PAS leaders who do not fight for Islam anymore and do anything just to win the coming general election.
