MCA urge that BN whip to take disciplinary action against cabinet ministers who had openly supported PAS hudud movement and instruct them to leave the joint technical committee with Kelantan PAS government.
PAS’ decision to submit the Private member 's Bill has shocked the non-Muslim community, as they regard such a Bill as unconstitutional and likened it as " Religious Abuse" which infringe their rights to religious freedom.
Thus, it was disappointing when two of BN Cabinet Ministers, namely the Minister of Prime Minister Department Dato Sri Jamil Khir and the Minister of International Trade and Industry Dato’ Sri Mustapa Mohamed, had not only expressed their support towards PAS’ Hudud Bill, but had also announced their participation in the technical committee to review the implementation of Hudud Law in Kelantan.
Thus far, neither the BN Supreme Council nor the Cabinet had discussed nor reached a consensus on PAS’ actions.
Since independence, BN’s governing philosophy has been based on justice, equality, unity and mutual respect through the principle of power-sharing, which has seen Malaysia developed into a modern nation of peace and harmony, whereby the rights of each citizen is clearly outlined in the Federal Constitution and Rukun Negara.
Therefore, the action of the two BN ministers have gone against our national principles, and has also deviated from BN’s governing policy since independence.
As such, in order to uphold the spirit and dignity of BN, I urge that disciplinary action should be taken against the two ministers and both should be instructed to withdraw from the technical committee on Hudud Law with Kelantan PAS government immediately.
PAS intention to table Hudud Bill in September a slap in the face for Guan Eng
Apparently DAP Secretary-general Lim Guan Eng has been slapped in the face by PAS yet again just 2 days after the latter announced to shelve the Private Member's Bill to implement hudud.
This is because Kelantan Deputy Menteri Besar Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah had announced yesterday that PAS would only table the Bill in September instead of June.
Lim had embarrassed himself again for not referring to his political master on the plan to implement hudud before bragging that DAP had succeeded in stopping PAS from implementing hudud law.
It is clear that Lim constantly likes to brag about his achievements, even though we have yet to see DAP contribute anything in their objections against hudud law other than blaming and defaming MCA.
While DAP had thought that they can exploit the postponement for their own political benefit in the coming by-elections, PAS on the other hand has other plans by announcing that they would be tabling the Bill in September instead.
Perhaps Lim’s over eagerness shows that he has a poor rapport within the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) coalition, since it is not the first time that DAP has been left in the dark about PAS's new announcement. The same incident had also happened during the Kajang by-election which was created by PKR.
Thus, Lim should consider leaving Pakatan Rakyat as proposed by DAP's Organising Secretary Anthony Loke. I would like to advise Lim to learn his lesson and be practical in his work so that he will not embarrass himself again by trying to score cheap publicity.
