PAS committed to change – the Islamic way, says Hadi Awang

(The Star) – PAS is committed to pushing for change the Islamic way, says its president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.

He said the push for a ‘benevolent state’ was in line with the party’s Islamic agenda.

Stressing that the party had never deviated from its Islamic principles, Hadi said PAS was “committed to spur change to gain Allah’s blessing, making Islam our core struggle.”

He said this in his keynote address at the 58th PAS Muktamar at Pusat Tarbiyah Islamiah Kelantan (PUTIK) here on Friday.

Hadi said a benevolent state reflected perfect and holistic Islamic teachings, as propagated and implemented by the Prophet Muhammad.

Under these principles a leader should be fair even to foes when governing an Islamic system, he said.

“PAS is offering the rakyat the concept of fairness in Islam.”
