KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 13 – PAS finally declared its official stand today on the recent church raid in Petaling Jaya, saying the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) must take immediate action if it finds proof that Christians were proselytising to Muslims there.


Its leaders said the decision is in accordance with PAS’s position as a party founded on Islamic principles, adding that under no circumstances would it compromise on religious matters.

“PAS is an Islamist party. Our Constitution states Islam is our foundation and the Quran.

“So PAS’s priority is to defend the sanctity of Islam, there is no compromise when it comes to upholding the faith,” deputy president Mohamad Sabu told reporters after the party’s political bureau meeting here this evening.
