Hadi Awang dipetik sebagai berkata majoriti orang Cina dalam DAP tidak mempunyai hak untuk membentuk kerajaan yang memerintah, kerana orang Islam melebihi bilangan orang Cina di Malaysia.
"DAP mempunyai rancangan yang lebih besar, lebih daripada sekadar mengawal ekonomi oleh itu ia hanya melalui penyatuan umat Islam kita boleh memastikan negara ini terus diperintah oleh orang Melayu.- Utusan Malaysia
Presiden PAS, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang perlu membuat pendirian adakah melawan bangsa lain selain Melayu lebih penting berbanding melawan rasuah dan penyelewengan.
Ahli Parlimen Petaling Jaya Utara, Tony Pua berkata, Hadi perlu menjelaskan pendirian itu susulan seruan beliau supaya umat Islam bersatu menentang DAP.
“Adakah lebih penting Hadi melawan bangsa lain (bukan Islam) melawan isu rasuah, isu penyalahgunaan kuasa dan isu penyelewengan (oleh pemerintah), jadi Hadi kena pilih yang mana mematuhi ajaran agama,” katanya di Parlimen, hari ini.
Pua berkata, tuduhan Hadi bahawa DAP mahu menguasai negara ini tidak masuk akal kerana parti itu hanya bertanding tidak sampai 50 kerusi.
“Pertama DAP tidak dapat menjadi kerajaan Persekutuan, atas (kekuatan DAP) sahaja, DAP hanya bertanding tidak sampai 50 kerusi dan jumlah keseluruhan ada 222 kerusi, jadi macam mana nak jadi kerajaan kalau menang semua kerusi yang DAP bertanding itu pun tak mungkin kami dapat menjadi kerajaan,” katanya.
Sementara itu, Naib Presiden AMANAH, Datuk Dr Mujahid Yusof Raya berpendapat Presiden PAS itu sudah ketandusan isu untuk diketengahkan.
“Itu isu lama yang dibawa beliau ,” katanya ringkas.- fmt
Anwar Ibrahim senyum kepada orang ramai di Kamar Mahkamah Tinggi sebelum memulakan kes saman beliau terhadap Dato' Seri Nallakurappan. Hari ini menjadi sejarah apabila beliau menjadi peguam beliau sendiri kerana pihak berkuasa menghadkan pertemuan beliau dengan peguam-peguam sehingga persediaan perbicaraan kes terbantut.
Nalla now claims media twist,after being grilled by Anwar in court...
In a surprising turn of event, Malaysian United Indian Party president Senator S Nallakaruppan today denied accusing former deputy prime minister Anwar Ibrahim of having taken RM60 million from gaming firm Magnum Corporation Bhd.
Nallakaruppan, who is on the witness stand at the Kuala Lumpur High Court, said the reports carried by the media – Mingguan Malaysia and Sinar Harian – had been twisted.
"I did not make the statement as it has been twisted," he told a packed court room.
Following this revelation, Anwar, who is conducting his own case in his RM100 million suit against Nalla, asked for a short break before Justice Mohd Zaki Abdul Wahab, saying that if this had been said earlier there is no need to proceed with the trial.
"I will discuss with the defendant's lawyer (Muhammad Shafee Abdullah)."
Earlier, when questioned by Anwar, Nallakaruppan said 30 policemen swarmed his house on July 31, 1998 and seized many items.
Anwar jokingly asked why did this happen as “you are not an IS terrorist”.
Nallakaruppan(above) said the police then wanted to find evidence that he had solicited information from the then deputy prime minister (Anwar) to be given to foreign government.
Anwar: Was this allegation true?
Nallakaruppan: No, it is not true as I do not want to implicate my friend (Anwar) as I was also threatened to admit this or be placed under the Internal Security Act. For this, I was held for 38 days.
Anwar: What happened during the 38 days of detention?
Nallakaruppan: The police tried to force me to sign a blank statement and forced me to admit that I was acting for a foreign country and that Anwar was providing me with the information. Anwar did not provide any information on the government and I refused to make such false statement or sign such blank document
This led Anwar to quip that "you must be a brave man". This led to laughter in the court room.
Anwar: Are you aware of an affidavit of Senior Assistant Commissioner II Musa Hassan who later rose to be the inspector-general of police that claimed that you (Nallakaruppan) gave me RM60 million.
Nallakaruppan: I was not aware. They threatened me with ISA, (but) I did not budge to implicate Anwar. - mk
Hadi hustles from hudud to hullabaloo...
What a remarkable line-up of strange bedfellows. Has-beens. Wannabe Arabs. Back-stabbers. ‘Devout’ Muslims with plenty to say on hudud, but not a word about punishing corrupt politicians. Back-pedallers. Misoygynists.
This new political line-up hopes to become a formidable opposition force, the ‘third force’ of Malaysian politics; but it is more farcical than forceful. The combo is more of a vanity political coalition, than a serious political entity.
The Ikatan president and former tourism minister, Abdul Kadir Sheikh Fadzir, had a joint press conference (PC) with Hadi Awang, the PAS president, about the new pact.
The Malaysian equivalent of Donald Trump (physical attributes), and a wannabe Arab. How can anyone have any confidence in this duo? Their track record is not a glittering success.
Hadi flirts with anyone whom he thinks can serve his purpose, but does not seem to realise that he is being used. He ignored the wise words of PAS’ spiritual adviser, Tok Guru Nik Aziz Nik Mat, to be wary of Umno Baru, but like Adam in the Garden of Eden, he ate the forbidden fruit, and today, his party has been banished from Eden.
For years, Hadi denied having unity government talks with Umno Baru, and when it was finally revealed that he had been having secret discussions with them, he was unashamed about his role. Is this the behaviour of a trustworthy individual?
Hadi played a major role in destroying Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) in the Kajang move and it took him a month to reveal that he did not want a woman as menteri besar.
During that time, he claimed that he could not disclose his reason for not supporting Wan Azizah Wan Ismail’s candidacy, pretending it was top secret stuff. Nothing of the sort. He is a misogynist through and through.
Habuk pun tak dak...
Hadi uses hudud as a weapon against the parties and people that PAS wants to discredit. When PAS was aligned with Pakatan Rakyat, the hudud issue was made into a political hot-potato in the final lap towards GE13. It threw the opposition coalition into disarray. Coincidence or political treachery?
Today, Hadi and Abdul Kadir want us to believe that “there are more important issues than hudud”.
Abdul Kadir is either more dense than we thought or extremely optimistic, like a woman who marries a roué in the hope that she can change and tame him.
Hadi has a bad track record, and has confirmed that he is an Umno Baru stooge and a fifth columnist.
Abdul Kadir once served as tourism and information minister, and in 2011, climbed Mount Kinabalu and said, “If I had known the place was so beautiful, I would have done the necessary to develop and improve the areas around Mount Kinabalu.”
So, is he finally admitting that he was a useless tourism minister? The rakyat knows that ministers don’t normally take an interest, unless there is a financial incentive for them.
Abdul Kadir is a spent force who is trying to re-establish his relevance. In 2012, he claimed that he resigned from Umno Baru because he did not agree with money politics.
After 56 years in Umno and Umno Baru, did it suddenly dawn on him that corruption in the party was a new phenomenon?
A distant memory
Last year, at the official launch of his party, Ikatan, The Star reported that Abdul Kadir had said, “The country’s founding fathers, Tunku Abdul Rahman, Tun Tan Cheng Lock, Tun Dr Ismail, Tun VT Sambanthan are crying in their graves at the state of Malaysia.”
Today, Abdul Kadir’s remark about past Malaysian leaders, are a distant memory.
He struck a confused tone at the launch of Ikatan’s alignment with PAS when he said, “We want to be a pact that opposes the government, by advising them.”
Really? The rakyat and various NGOs like human rights groups and Bersih, have been giving plenty of free advice, but the government refused to listen. What makes Abdul Kadir think he can make a difference?
The reality is that this combo will act as a political spoiler to confuse the fence-sitters, and try to prevent people from voting for Pakatan Harapan.
Hadi has gone down in history as the man who brought Malaysia to its knees when he betrayed Pakatan Rakyat. Abdul Kadir does not seem to want to learn from Pakatan Rakyat’s painful lesson.
Some conservative Malays like to claim that they often receive divine messages. So, what should we make of this incident?
At the start of the press conference of the PAS-Ikatan launch on March 16, a power cut plunged the PAS building into darkness. Was that a divine hint?
Or a portend that PAS-Ikatan would throw us into the dark ages? - Mariam Mokhtar,mk
