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