AN inquiry into the Memali incident will reveal the role PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang played in the stand-off between the authorities and civilians, which cost lives on both sides, including that of  policemen and a militant leader, 30 years ago,  a former inspector-general of police said.

Amid renewed political interest in the 1985 siege on religious extremists in a remote village in Kedah, Abdul Rahim Noor is questioning the government’s proposal for a royal commission of inquiry (RCI), and PAS’ support of it.

  • Let him enjoy his false beliefs of victory and let the RCI be in placed . When the pandora box is opened , lets see how his role has affected Ibrahim Libya for it was known that the younger Hadi at the time was instrumental in the inspiring of violence thru his "Amanat Hadi" . Untill now he has not changed and still in his demon form of creating unrest. Malaysia was nearly torn apart by Zakir Naik on his incessant racist religious boding but we forgot and overlook the ever opportunist waiting to spring bigger surprise in our local stable in Hadi Awang.
