KUALA KRAI, 19 June 2009: Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Mohd Yassin said today Muslims who vote for either the Barisan Nasional (BN) or PAS have an equal chance of going to heaven.
He said what could prevent them from going to heaven was their sins and not their votes for a political party.
He said both the BN and PAS fought for the Islamic cause, but what set them apart was that the BN had the strength and capability to bring progress to the country.
“The capability of the BN to develop the country is stronger compared with that of PAS under the leadership of spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat,” he said at a meeting with educationists at Sekolah Kebangsaan Sungai Sok here.
Muhyiddin, who is also education minister, said PAS did not have the capability to develop the country.
As such, voters in Manik Urai should be rational and make a wise choice if they wanted to enjoy better livelihood and development in their constituency, he said. — Bernama
