in Latest/Slider

PUTRAJAYA: There is no reason for PAS to declare the Goods and Tax Services (GST) “haram” (forbidden) as some 169 countries, including Islamic nations have implemented the system, said Domestic Trade, Cooperatives, and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Hasan Malek.

He said this was because the National Fatwa Council had earlier okayed GST based on several guidelines.

The government will push ahead with imposing the taxation system on April 1 as it had been approved in Dewan Rakyat and Dewan Negara.

“This (GST) had been mentioned and tabled many times before in Parliamentary sessions but they (PAS) did not say anything about it (being haram),” he said during a press conference after launching the 1Malaysia People’s Sim Card (SR1M), in Galleria, Presint 4, here, today.-The Star
