KUALA LUMPUR – The MCA today slammed the DAP for the latter’s inaction to stop the PAS-led Kelantan state government from tabling amendments to the Syariah Criminal Code Enactment II 1993 (Hudud law).
MCA organising secretary, Senator Datuk Yoo Wei How said the DAP had closed both eyes on PAS’ action and took no measures whatsoever to try to stop PAS who had put the rights of non-Muslims in jeopardy.
“PAS has clearly taken advantage of DAP’s helplessness and submissiveness to do whatever it wants, even if it is against the federal constituition and the people’s wish,” he said in a statement here.
In a separate statement, Wanita MCA condemned PAS’ presistence on hudud law and believed the action will bring an end to Malaysia’s multiculturalism.
Wanita MCA chief Datuk Heng Seai Kie said the unanimous passing of hudud law by the Kelantan state assembly is a dangerous trend that will eventually overturn the secular legal system.
Meanwhile, Gerakan president Datuk Mah Siew Keong expressed his disappointment over the passing of amendments to theb hudud law in Kelantan.
He stresed that Gerakan was consistent with its stand on hudud law which he described as unconstitutional and impractical in Malaysian society. – BERNAMA
