Hadi Awang owes DAP, PKR an apology: Karpal

PENANG, 12 June 2009: DAP chairperson Karpal Singh said today PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang owed an apology to both the DAP and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) for having proposed unity talks with Umno in what he described as a “clear breach of sincerity”.

He said the DAP had criticised PAS leaders whenever they made statements that were extreme in racial and religious content.

“Hadi Awang is fast becoming an embarrassment to the Pakatan Rakyat, and after this he should think before he talks,” he said in a statement issued here.

Karpal Singh said PAS spiritual leader and Kelantan Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat was quoted as saying in an emotional and angry tone that these PAS leaders were out to destroy the party.

“Even Nik Aziz has publicly criticised his colleagues for pushing their agenda for unity talks with Umno,” he said.

Hadi had proposed unity talks with Umno after opening the 55th PAS annual general assembly in Shah Alam recently. — Bernama

    Why waste time asking for apology? Sever the relationship now before it’s too late.

    PAS = Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party or the Islamic Party of Malaysia (Malay: Parti Islam Se-Malaysia), commonly known as PAS or Pas

    What else do you think is their final ambition?

    Hadi won’t apologise. His ambition is forming an Islamic state, if not through PR then with BN. Get it, Karpal?

    Hadi Awang doesn’t owe the DAP any apology.

    He is merely showing the true colors of PAS … and that PAS, PKR and Umno who are of the same yoke, share a common ideology that aligns religion and race to achieve supremacy and dominance of the political power (and economic priviledges). Just analyse Anwar’s speeches of old and observe the the actions of KJ.

    If the leadership of DAP has not heard of the term “caveat emptor” or has not seen this coming, they must have been walking in their sleep.

    Occasionally, we will find one bad apple in a basket. In this case it happened to be the PAS president. Maybe he’s been tempted to switch camps for his own personal reasons or has fallen into someone else agenda. Whatever it may be, I believe there are many capable leaders in PAS to take over his job!
