Full audio recording of PAS-Umno cooperation making the rounds online

An audio recording of PAS working with Barisan Nasional lynchpin party Umno has been damaging to the Islamist party, giving rival Amanah a weapon to attack it. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, March 29, 2018.

THE full 20-minute audio recording of PAS working with traditional rival Umno has been making the rounds on Facebook since last night.

The recording detailed how a team called “RTI” was formed in the run-up to the 2015 PAS muktamar (annual general assembly) with the blessing of the Islamist party’s top leadership.

RTI’s main job was to attack PAS leaders who were in the “progressive” faction, which favoured continued political cooperation with other parties in the then Pakatan Rakyat alliance.

As a result, 18 senior PAS leaders in the central committee were ousted in party polls. They went on to form Amanah, which is now part of the Pakatan Harapan opposition pact together with Bersatu, PKR and DAP.

The recording was initially released in five parts. It is said to feature the voice of PAS central committee member and Pasir Mas MP Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz, but he has denied being caught on tape.

“Some say the voice recorded is 1,000% mine, but I deny it, like how (PH de facto leader) Anwar Ibrahim denied the video slandering him,” Nik Abduh was reported as saying at an event in Klang recently.

The voice in the recording mentions two names – “Maulana Shaari” and “Suwardi” – as two individuals who had connected PAS with Umno over political cooperation and accepting money from the Barisan Nasional lynchpin party.

Maulana is described as an important figure to the late PAS spiritual leader Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, as well as president Abdul Hadi Awang.

Nik Abduh is the son of Nik Aziz.

Maulana is also said to be able to make connections with “everyone”, including Prime Minister Najib Razak.

Suwardi, meanwhile, once contested in Perlis on a PAS ticket and was close to Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Jamil Khir Baharom, who is in charge of Islamic affairs.

“(The late PAS spiritual leader) Haron Din trusted Suwardi completely, but the president (Hadi) doesn’t. He is close to Jamil Khir,” said the voice in the recording.

The person in the recording also claimed to know people from the US’ Central Intelligence Agency.

Kelantan PH chairman Husam Musa, who is also Amanah vice-president, was the first to release the recording in parts.

The recording has been damaging to PAS, giving rival Amanah a weapon to attack the party and recruit members. – March 29, 2018.

  • If you want some fake news try this piece of bullshit on for size. Harapan would love nothing better than to have evidence of PAS/UMNO collusion. In fact right now the NEED something like this fake news, because everything else they have tried (manifesto, rally, slander) have failed to impress anyone. This is the ultimate Harapan Hoax. All the things they hate most rolled into one. A conman’s dream. They have conveniently overlooked one simple fact, ideologically these two groups are totally opposed. PAS wants Islam to control government, UMNO wants to control Islam. Surely the senile old goat can remember his sole reason for existing?

  • Strange, isn’t it. That in this day of modern technology IT IS FAR EASIER to make an audio/video recording. Yet this piece of Harapan garbage is in the less accessible audio only format. Still it seems to have fooled tommy. But then he was never a great thinker. Think tommy, had it been an AV recording there would be fewer questions about its authenticity. As it is, only the fools get fooled

  • Dont worry dennis, haters like tommy really needs something to believe in, in the age of fake news. Pakatan just has to spin some kind of bullshit story like tun raising from the dead after three days after being crucified, and people like tommy will cling to it like the gospal truth. Sad, really sad

    • You are despicable in your piece. Do not have any reference to the religion whether it is yours or others to ridicule as it show your retard mind and Satan worshipping. Your thoughts are evil and dirty. If you can argue with pointers or at least some intellgence of bantering , do so but do not project or insinuate reference to another person using religious connotations . When your religion is ridicule you goes amok but when it is others you smirk with pathetic glee . It just show you are a pariah and a coward using a false identity . If you are proud of yourself use your real name which I believe your Muslim parents has given a nice one.

  • In fact Allah will be the one having the headache if this is true because all those who claimed to be the followers are all telling lies.
