Is anger towards Hadi under Islam and any of the religions of the world permitted because he has been untruthful, insincere and dishonest in repeatedly violating PR Common Policy Framework and PR consensus operational principle?
I am surprised and shocked that PAS President Datuk Seri Hadi Awang has invoked religion to say that it is an obligation for Muslims to vent their anger at DAP for opposing the implementation of hudud in Kelantan.
This is a very dangerous, divisive and retrograde step which can only undermine the process of Malaysian nation-building to create an united and harmonious multi-racial, multi-religious and multi-cultural Malaysian citizenry.
Is anger towards Hadi permitted not only under Islam but any of the religions in the world for being untruthful, insincere and dishonest in repeatedly violating Pakatan Rakyat Common Policy Framework and Pakatan Rakyat consensus operational principle – which is why the Pakatan Rakyat Leadership Council is in a crisis and has not met for more than three months as Hadi had unilaterally and arbitrarily disregarded the decisions of the PR Leadership Council or overruled PAS leaders who had attended in his absence, arrogating to himself a veto power over the PR Leadership Council?
Hadi first acted with utter dishonesty and insincerity during the May 2013 General Elections when he authorized PAS candidature to contest in six state assembly seats in the country which were allotted to PKR, resulting in three-cornered fights and the loss of PR in these seats.
The second time was Hadi’s overruling of the Pakatan Rakyat Leadership Council decision on August 17, 2014 which was attended by the top leaderships of DAP, PKR and PAS (although Hadi was absent) that the PKR President Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail be appointed as Selangor Mentri Besar.
The third time was Hadi’s breach of his personal commitment at the PR Leadership Council meeting of Feb. 8, 2015 that any amendment to the 1995 Kelantan Syariah Criminal Enactment and any private member’s bill motion in Parliament on hudud implementation would first be presented to the PR Leadership Council.
The fourth time was when the 2015 Kelantan Syariah Criminal Enactment was presented and passed by the Kelantan State Assembly on March 19, without reference to the PR Leadership Council, and the fifth time was when Hadi himself presented a private member’s bill motion in Parliament on hudud implementation in the March/April meeting of Parliament also without reference to the PR Leadership Council.
The sixth time was the re-presentation of Hadi’s private member’s bill motion to the May/June meeting of Parliament, again without reference to the PR Leadership Council.
I expect Hadi to be played out by the UMNO leadership again and his private member’s bill motion will suffer the same fate in the current parliamentary meeting as in the previous Parliament, where it would not be given priority to be debated and voted upon.
Is Hadi going to invoke the wrath of the Almighty against the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak and the entire UMNO/Barisan Nasional national leadership for again playing him out on the private member’s bill motion in the current Parliament?
Pakatan Rakyat is facing a crisis of survival not because of hudud, but whether PAS under Hadi is prepared to keep to the solemn promise to be committed to the Pakatan Rakyat Common Policy Framework and the PR consensus operational principle which all the three component parties, DAP, PKR and PAS have sworn would bind them.
If the PR Common Policy Framework or PR consensus operational principle could be unilaterally destroyed by anyone of the three PR component parties, then the basis for the continuation of PR has ceased to exist.
The greatest challenge facing PR today is not hudud but whether this PR Common Policy Framework and PR consensus operational principle can be salvaged and restored, or whether PR has just become history!
Hadi is not being honest or truthful when he said that DAP had agreed to the implementation of hudud in Kelantan.
The Joint Statement of Pakatan Rakyat Leadership Council of Sept. 28, 2011 on hudud had made it very clear that while the three PR parties of DAP, PKR and PAS had “agreed to disagree” as to what had happened in the past, referring specifically to the Kelantan Syariah Criminal Enactment 1993 and the Terengganu Syariah Criminal Enactment 2003 passed before the formation of Pakatan Rakyat, the three parties agreed that for the future, all policies involving PR and their implementation must have the agreement of all three parties.
Hadi knew the import of the PR Leadership Council Joint Statement on hudud on Sept. 28, 2011 which explained his speech in Hulu Terengganu in May 2012 as well as in various parts of the country before the 13th General Elections where he said that hudud was not a PAS and PR priority as it could only be implemented if adequate conditions were met.
If I am wrong that Hadi does not have the numbers in Parliament to pass the private members’ bill motion as he would be played out again by UMNO, then the very unity, survival and integrity of the Malaysian Federation would be at stake as the nation would be facing the greatest crisis since its formation in 1963, with Sarawak and Sabah feeling betrayed that the fundamental condition for their forming the Malaysian federation – that Malaysia will be a secular state – had been violated.
