Pakatan asked to take stand on hudud, PAS


Although Pakatan Harapan was officially launched last week, they were hesitant on taking a unanimous stand on hudud and PAS.

Lawyer Haniff Khatri Abdulla said that they should take a stand so that they are united, and not end up like the now-defunct Pakatan Rakyat. “The previous pact split because they had no consistent stand, with PAS being pro-hudud and DAP taking an anti-hudud stand.”
