PAS flip-flop sign of 'mental disorder' - Umno analysts

on 01 March 2013

KUALA LUMPUR- The PAS flip flop on certain issues and disunity among members and partners, the DAP and PKR, are signs that PAS is suffering from mental disorder, said a political analyst.

Director of National Integration Studies Centre, Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI), Prof Datuk Dr Zainal Kling said PAS is in a dilemma after making a decision that involves Islam and politics.

"PAS does not know what to do, follow the socialistof DAP or Islam. It said the wrong thing and had to retract, resulting in a mess," he told Bernama here today.

The issue of use of the word 'Allah' in the Malay version of the Bible is a big blow to PAS when the decision of the Pakatan Rakyat supreme ccouncil was announced by an opposition leader.

However, the decision was challenged by the PAS Ulama Shura Council which decided that the word 'Allah' could not be used by non-Muslims.

PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang should reverse the decision but until today, he has done nothing to rectify the problem.

PAS also disagreed with the candidate for the Prime Minister's post should the opposition succeed in capturing Putrajaya in the general election.

It suggested that the post he held by Abdul Hadi but DAP chairman Karpal Singh stressed the post should go to opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Zainal said PAS is increasingly desperate to garner support as general election beckons and has to resort to discrediting the government.

"PAS talks about welfare state, but Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has done more than that. It does not how to counter and began talking about Pharaoh and chicken (Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia)."

He said PAS leaders should examine their faith in depth if it want to continue with the DAP and PKR.

"If you want to be a Muslim, you cannot be friends with socialists (DAP). If the opposition captures Putrajaya, PAS will have to sacrifice the Islamic state concept and lose the support of Muslims."

Malaysian Youth Clubs Global Relief chairman Akhramsyah Muammar Ubaidah Sanusi said youths are fed up with the flip flop stance displayed by PAS.

"The changing stance can be equated with hypocritical. PAS should be more transparent with its stand and not jump here and there, just to garner votes."

He was surprised that PAS could sit down with DAP and PKR which have no respect for the position of Islam in the country.

"PAS can remain as hypocrites (continuing with Pakatan)), or leave with dignity and refrain from committing sins," he added.

Meanwhile, Defenders of Islam (Pembela) secretary, Abdul Karim Omar believes PAS fear losing control of Kedah and Kelantan if they choose Anwar as candidate for Prime Minister.

He said it is better for DAP to drop PKR and DAP so that the party can uphold Islam.
"Maybe, it is better for PAS to be with Umno," he added.
