Nik Aziz: No Objection To DAP’s Insults Against Islam

( Bernama) — Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat has no objection to DAP leaders hurling insults at Islam.

He said this was because the party was not Islamic and probably, had shallow understanding of the religion.

However, the PAS spiritual leader blamed Muslim leaders who rejected Islamic teachings to the extent of polluting the religion and caused non-Muslims to misinterpret its holy teachings.

"DAP has insulted Islam because they (leaders) are not Muslims. What is more insulting is when the Muslims reject Islam," he said, when asked to comment on the action taken by several DAP leaders, of late, which allegedly insulted Islam.

Nik Aziz said, to enhance DAP's understanding of Islam, PAS, as a partner in the Opposition pact, was taking a better approach to explain to the DAP leaders, so that they would understand the religion better.

"We will do this through forums, talks and discussions," he said. Meanwhile, Nik Aziz also slammed certain quarters who labeled Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) de-facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as traitor.

He said, if there was something wrong with the implementation of PKR's policy, then that should be the topic of argument, not make personal attacks on Anwar.

"Why do they have to launch personal attacks? They should go and attack the policy. I am ashamed of the Malays who launched the personal attacks," he added.
