KOTA BARU, 25 June 2009: Kelantan Umno Youth has lodged a police report against PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat for likening Umno to a deviationist teaching and communism.
State Umno Youth chief Anuar Safian said the remarks uttered by Nik Aziz on Sunday,14 June were seditious and could lead to tension among the people.
Speaking to reporters after lodging the report at the Kota Baru police station here today, Anuar claimed that Nik Aziz had likened Umno to the Ayah Pin deviationist teaching and communism, and had purportedly said the party had rejected Islam.
Anuar was accompanied by about 100 Umno Youth supporters, who carried placards denouncing PAS for forming a pact with the DAP and Parti Keadilan Rakyat.
“The allegation had ridiculed the country’s history and constitution as Umno upholds Islam and has brought development to the people,” said Anuar, adding that Nik Aziz had angered and upset Umno members and the people. — Bernama
