Islamic agendas in danger if Pas' ex-allies capture Putrajaya

HANA NAZ HARUN


ALOR STAR: Islamic agendas would come under threat should Pas' former allies capture Putrajaya.


Declaring this today, Pas Ulama chief Datuk Dr Mahfodz Mohamed said the Islamic party’s “previous partners”, in paving their way to Putrajaya, are strongly objecting efforts to strengthen Islam.


“What saddens us is that our former partners, in their quest to capture Putrajaya, also practice politics similar to that by Umno and Barisan Nasional, and their objections towards implementing Islamic efforts is even stronger than Umno’s,” he said in his keynote address at the Ulama assembly here at Pas' muktamar this morning.


He also said should the particular “political pact” win the general election, Islamic agendas risk being sidelined.


In the previous general election, Pas had formed the Pakatan Rakyat pact with PKR and DAP.


However the pact collapsed after DAP openly opposed Pas’ efforts to strengthen Shariah law.
