KUALA LUMPUR – If UMNO and PAS were to forge a cooperation, this will promote unity among the ummah, said UMNO Supreme Council member Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
He said unity among Muslim political leaders was crucial in ensuring the continuity of Islam and for the successful implementation of related policies in the country.
However, Ismail Sabri said matters concerning collaboration of the two parties, especially in the general election, was for the party leaders to decide.
“So far we have not seen any quarrel between UMNO and PAS but if we can really cooperate further, I think that will be good because we are talking about uniting the ummah.
“Instead of fighting it is better for us to stay united,” he said as panel of the political cluster at the Ummah Agenda Empowerment Convention 3.0 here today.
He was commenting on the issue of whether it was necessary to establish political cooperation between UMNO and PAS.
