(The Star) - Former PAS deputy president Nasharudin Mat Isa told DAP chairman Karpal Singh that they will meet in court over his “anti-Islam” remarks.
The Bachok MP said in an online portal report yesterday: “I maintain my stand that Karpal Singh is anti-Islam and am ready to meet him in court.”
He said he was taught in PAS that Islamic teachings cover every aspect of life, which encompassed faith, laws and morals, and that rejecting part of Islam would mean rejecting Islam.
He was responding to a statement by Karpal that he planned to sue him for defamation.
The Bukit Gelugor MP had said that he would take Nasharudin to court for allegedly saying that he was against Islam and that as a lawyer, he should know that the implementation of hudud required high standards of proof.
