Conference of Rulers and hudud

The Conference of Rulers has never discussed the matter at its meetings. The office (of the Keeper of the Rulers’ Seal) did not issue a press statement dated March 25 on the matter.

Syed Danial Syed Ahmad, Keeper of the Rulers’ Seal, denying that he had issued any statement on Kelantan’s hudud plan, and is seeking a police investigation into the matter



The PMO wishes to deny that Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak issued any statement today about the implementation of hudud.

The amendment was not brought the the Council of Rulers for endorsement.

Jamil Khir Baharom, Minister in charge of religious affairs, confirming that the proposed amendments to Act 355, a federal law that the Kelantan PAS government wants changed to enable its enforcement of hudud, was never presented to the Conference of Rulers


Why did they not bring the amendment, when the joint technical committee on hudud had already agreed to the amendment? The government had already agreed to this, and now they break what was agreed, to bring this to the council.

Mahfuz Omar, Pokok Sena MP


We are knowledgeable, civilised and matured creatures. So listen to what we want to say first. Don't jump to conclusion and criticise vociferously without knowing the whole story.

Tuan Guru Abdul Hadi Awang, PAS president, asking everyone to listen first to what he has to say in Parliament on hudud before criticising him


DAP’s stand

Strangely, PKR turned its back on Pakatan on the 'Kajang Move'. Abdul Khalid Ibrahim was sacked as menteri besar (MB) without PAS' agreement, but this was not seen as treachery. And now, (DAP supremo) Lim Kit Siang is proposing collaborating with BN in the name of ‘saving Malaysia’? Isn't this a betrayal to the Pakatan common policy framework?

Khairuddin Aman Razali, Kuala Nerus MP, pointing out that Pakatan Rakyat parties are practicing double standard by attacking PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang for acting unilaterally on hudud when PKR did the same in the "Kajang Move"


After GST

We have had many engagements with trader associations and chambers of commerce including the FMM (Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers) and Malaysian Retailers Association (MRA) on GST. We explained to them that they must comply with the regulations that they must ensure their net profits are within a certain margin from Jan 2 until June 30 next year. They have been told that if their net profits go beyond the margin, that is profiteering and they will face action under the Price Control and Anti-Profiteering Act.

Hasan Malek, Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister, promising that consumers will not see a huge increase in prices following the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST)
