PAS leaders snub Nalla offer

By Syed Mu’az Syed Putra, The Malaysian Insider

KUALA LUMPUR, March 28 — The top PAS leadership has decided to ignore Datuk S. Nallakaruppan’s offer to dish the dirt on Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, most recently hit by a sex video scandal.

PAS leaders would only offer terse comments on the offer when contacted by The Malaysian Insider today.

“He (Nallakaruppan) doesn’t have to reveal anything… We know who Nallakaruppan is,” PAS vice-president Datuk Dr Mahfuz Omar said.

“So no need to go to the trouble to reveal anything.”

Fellow party vice-president Salahuddin Ayub said he did not want to pay heed to Nallakaruppan’s “request”.

“We will not humour him,” he said.

PAS information chief Idris Ahmad similarly said the Islamist party would ignore Nallakaruppan, while PAS secretary-general Datuk Mustafa Ali declined to comment.

Utusan Malaysia reported today that Nallakaruppan had said it was time for PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat, party president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, deputy president Nasharudin Mat Isa and Mustafa to know the real Anwar.

“PAS leaders can pick the time and place. I am ready to meet with them to explain the truth about Anwar, the man they call a leader,” Nallakaruppan had said.

“It would be best if I met with those leaders because they are the ones who call the shots in the party.”

The Malaysian Indian United Party (MIUP) president said the meeting was crucial to saving the Malaysian people, especially the Malays and strong PAS supporters.
