Umno Youth says PAS stands for DAP, not Islam

(The Malaysian Insider)  – Umno Youth stepped up its attacks against the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) state government, accusing PAS of abandoning its Islamic ideology, and of becoming so liberal that “pork would soon be sold openly on the streets here.”

PAS’s Pakatan Rakyat (PR) partner DAP was portrayed as the enemy of Islam and the Malays, and the Islamist party was chastised for bending to the will of the Chinese-dominated party, before a gathering of more than 1,000 mostly Malay residents here

The vitriolic attacks against PR by Umno Youth leaders at last night’s rally here suggests the Barisan Nasional (BN) lynchpin is determined to continue its hardline racial rhetoric to create a siege mentality among the Malays to unite behind them.

Taking the cue from deputy party president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s recent remarks, Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin also called Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim a traitor to the Malays.

He challenged the former deputy prime minister to sue all 750,000 members of Umno Youth whom he said supported Muhyiddin’s statement that Anwar was a traitor.

Others who spoke at the rally took aim at PAS.
