PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang (centre) says the Islamist party has got MCA's back in the Balakong by-election, in Shah Alam, Selangor, today. – The Malaysian Insight pic by Hasnoor Hussain, August 19, 2018.

PAS is ready to help MCA in the Balakong by-election as the Barisan Nasional component had never attacked the Islamist party on the issue of hudud, said party president Abdul Hadi Awang.

The Marang MP said the Chinese party was unlike DAP, which had “disrespected PAS” when the two parties were in the now-defunct Pakatan Rakyat coalition.

  • Saying a few soothing words either halal or not halal will still be halal with 90 million.

  • If PAS had remained in PR, they would be in the government today with a bigger say for their electorate. Under Hadi, they made one blunder after another, colluding with Umno which has in the past deceived them. If MCA has any sense at all, they would keep as far away from PAS as possible, at least until PAS is smart or brave enough to dump Hadi.

  • Both MCA and DAP are against hudud but DAP has opposed hudud since we were in Pakatan Rakyat they didnt respect and even attacked us despite our being in the same coalition. Well, Hadi, respect is earned and has nothing to do with being on the same side. DAP stood their ground on principles whereas MCA stood behind closed doors. Can you not see why Malaysians trust DAP more than the mosquitoes, even the religious ones?

  • Splitting hairs. If a kafir party opposes Hudud can Muslims still support that party? Hadi should check with his poster boy Zakir Naik.

  • Hadi is delusional now in this wayward thinking that he is in position to determine the direction of Malaysian politics. PAS capabilities will be as far as Kelantan and Trengganu. PAS will find it difficult to make inroads into the western coastal and the southern states. Both the two states they are in control do not have the dynamism capabilities to bolster up their financial strength in allowing them to retain their hold,let alone the thoughts of making further inroads to capture the rest of the other states. States economic activities are not driven by simple prayers of request to be endowed by Almighty. Enforcing religious obligations to warrant attraction are just a farce that they have been selling where primarily and realistically ,only when every basic needs of neccesities are satisfied and exceeded, more so especially when on a full stomach will ensure a devoted and a passionate prayers. Loyalty and support will comes forth. Even the promises of the oil royaty in hand depends on the mutual undertsanding and how PAS will portray themselves on their behaviour and the accomodating nature but again sometimes things just do not work out as expected when Murphy is purposely let out. With PH administration of capable and highly educated leaders PAS may find it hard to strike the same note and could be in less favourable position as opposition. Hadi should start eating humble pie and begin the process of toning down as his demeanour are not in the good books of the old fox.

  • It baffles me. PAS members must surely be reading the nonsense Hadi is spewing. And they still let this guy be their head honcho? Hadi must have one heckuva charming personality, to enable pas folks to overlook his warts
