PAS Have Lost Its Non-Muslim Supporters Over Hudud: Kit Siang

in Latest/Politics

DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang believes that Pas has lost support from its non-Muslim voting bloc since the hudud bill’s tabling at the Kelantan state assembly last week.

He also said that Kelantan Deputy Menteri Besar Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah was naive in his assessment that non-Muslims in the country were not against hudud and DAP was alone in the furore.

“Pas is in danger of losing nearly all of its parliament and state seats outside the northern (and east coast) states, as a result of the tabling of the hudud bill.

“I am amazed at the gullibility and naivety of Mohd Amar who does not believe that non-Muslims in the country are against hudud, and that it was only the DAP which has been making noise,” said Lim in a statement today.

He said during the 13th General Election, Pas won 21 parliament seats and seven were outside its strongholds of Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu.

“In the same election, Pas won 85 state seats, 29 of which were outside Perlis, Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu.

“Many non-Muslim voters were willing to give their support for Pas candidates because of their trust in Pakatan’s common policy framework and the spirit of comradeship in the pact.

“It is fair to say that the non-Muslims’ trust in Pas has all but evaporated,” said Lim, who also predicted that Pas would be “wiped out” in Selangor, in a scenario he painted to depict his theory on the ebbing support for Pas.-NST
