Hadi: PAS candidates must take bai’ah oath

Hadi Awang(The Star) – PAS election candidates must pledge the bai’ah (oath of allegiance) to the party, which is higher than a loyalty pledge, said party president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.

He said this would ensure that PAS candidates would not stray from Islamic principles, ways and objectives.

“Anyone who goes against bai’ah will be wretched in this world and hereafter,” he said in a statement on Tuesday.

On claims that PAS has digressed from its struggle to set up an Islamic country by advocating a welfare state, he said: “PAS abides by its constitution by curbing anything that deviates from Islam.”
