PAS to help DAP understand Islam

(Bernama) KOTA BARU: PAS will organise forums and talks to help its ally DAP understand Islam better, said PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat.

He said as a partner in the Opposition pact, PAS was taking a better approach to explain to the DAP leaders so that they would understand the religion better.

On claims that DAP leaders had allegedly insulted Islam, Nik Aziz said DAP was not an Islamic party and would probably also have 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 causing non-Muslims to misinterpret its holy teachings.

“(If) DAP has insulted Islam (it is) because they (leaders) are not Muslims. What is more insulting is when the Muslims reject Islam,” he said.

“We will do this through forums, talks and discussions,” he said.

Nik Aziz also slammed certain quarters who labelled PKR adviser 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.
