What is Prime Minister Najib Razak’s stand on hudud since UMNO is being so vocal in urging PAS to implement hudud in Kelantan?
“I want Najib to explain clearly. Don’t use religion or others to explain the issue of hudud because the Terengganu state assembly has rejected this motion,” said PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim in a press conference yesterday.
UMNO’s rejection to hudud implementation in Terengganu proves that the Malay-based party is insincere when it comes to support the Islamic criminal law, he added.
“This is why I say they are pretending or contradicting between what was said by UMNO-BN and the reality (of the situation),” stressed Anwar.
Further revealing UMNO’s hypocrisy in the controversy, Anwar cited how the ruling government has kept its eyes closed on casino, corruption, oppression and the tempering of the justice system.
“This is not about religion, Sarah or hardwood, this is a political ploy by UMNO-BN. Pakatan Rakyat must remember this,” reminded the Anwar, who is also the Permatang Pauh MP.
The Opposition Leader said PAS Kelantan would be given a special consideration on the implementation of hudud since the enactment was already in place since the 1990s.
“In fact, Kelantan Menteri Besar has agreed to give a detailed explanation to Pakatan Rakyat leaders. We must have confidence in their capability,” added Anwar.
