Nik Aziz offers PM a lesson on mosque and Islamicity

By Harakah Daily

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 28: Kelantan Menteri Besar has derided a statement by prime minister Najib Razak criticising the PAS-led state government for having built only two mosques in Kelantan during its twenty years in power.

Nik Aziz says Najib has only exposed his ignorance

In a posting on his popular Facebook page, Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat said by tying the number of mosques to a government’s Islamicity, Najib had only exposed his deep ignorance about Islam.

Najib, speaking at a school in Kuala Krau, was reported by right wing Malay daily Utusan Malaysia as questioning PAS’s Islamic credentials because the latter had only constructed two mosques in the whole of Kelantan in the two decades it has been in power.

In his response, Nik Aziz wondered if Najib would have given a similar view if he were living in Madinah during the time of Prophet Muhammad.
