Malays and whisky? - Horses’ Mouths – 11 November 2015

Harakahdaily - TS | .

PAS with Umno?

I think those who made the allegations linking PAS with Umno… until now there’s no proof, and it did not happen as they alleged.

Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, PAS deputy president



Malays and whisky?

I regret the views of a former deputy prime minister’s son in wanting Jakim to be abolished and for Malaysia to return to a time when Malay-Muslims indulged in hard liquor such as whisky and brandy.

Dr Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki, Deputy Minister in the PM’s department, on Tawfik Ismail’s suggestion for the Department of Islamic Development (Jakim) to be abolished



Turtle eggs and minister

Honestly, I didn’t know that there were laws against it. But to me, that is not the issue. The issue is whether it was consumed or not.

Suhakam’s budget

The Malaysian government cannot in good conscience claim that they hold human rights and civil liberties in high regards when it is not reflected in the budget allocation for Suhakam,

Porn sites

It is important for the MCMC to take action as this is the root cause of social problems in our country.

1MDB and Kayveas’ logic

If I have a company and my company is not doing well, you can say what you want but that is for the management of the company. Why make Datuk Seri Najib the scapegoat?

M Kayveas, PPP president, insisting that Prime Minister should not be made the scapegoat for the problems faced by 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB)




Another shocking statement by the Health Ministry. The vape sellers can no longer be in business as giant companies own the pharmacies, including the foreign ones.

Azmin’s son

We did it that way as we didn't want to create any fuss. But after three months he had still not come forward, forcing police to issue the notice under Section 111 of the Criminal Procedure Code. Police had actually given him ample time; in fact he could have come forward before the notice was issued.
