Pas to mobilise 'mujahid cyber' in run-up to GE14


ALOR STAR: Pas will mobilise its cyber troopers or 'mujahid cyber' to tackle issues raised by its political enemies in the run-up to the 14th general election (GE14).

Pas Information chief Datuk Nasarudin Hassan Tantawi said that Pas will set up the mujahid cyber group to address issues at both local and national levels.

"Compared to other cyber troopers, mujahid cyber will not use fake accounts or fake names in defending their party from outside attack.

"Their role will be to channel information from party leaders to grassroots members, and to protect the party’s policy and integrity," he said in his winding-up speech on the third day of the 63rd Muktamar at Kompleks Pas Kedah here, today.

He also advised states that have yet to form their mujahid cyber groups to do so right after the Muktamar.

In addition, Nasarudin urged grassroots leaders to use the party’s newsletter, 'Harakah', to fight any slander lobbed at the party.

He said they should equip themselves with knowledge, so that they do not panic when attacked by party enemies.

Meanwhile, the Pas Supporters Club has voiced its hope of seeing Pas president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang as the first person from the party elected as Prime Minister.

Head of the Pas Supporters Club, N. Balasubramaniam, said the time has come for a Pas President to lead the country.

He said this is because an Ulama would rule the country fairly and also ensure equality for all Malaysians.

"We believe that Malaysia's future lies with Pas, which is why we want to see Pas win in the GE14.

"An Ulama will ensure that there will be no more corruption and abuse of power. Islam teaches its people to live together, regardless of their race.

"Islam is a religion that acts as a shelter for us, from misery and injustice," he said.

In his speech, Balasubramaniam also took a swipe at Pas' splinter, Parti Amanah Negara (PAN), describing them as "friends who have strayed from the right path".

He assured Pas leaders that the Supporters Club would never leave the Islamic party, as they believe in Pas' struggles.

"We will always be with Pas under this wonderful green tree (Pas), and we will never ever take shelter under the orange tree," he added, referring to PAN's official colour.
