Hadi: Those who oppose Emergency are worse than religious extremists
PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang today labelled those who oppose the Emergency as “political extremists” whose greed is worse than those of religious extremists who disregard human life in order to achieve their political agenda.
(MMO) – Abdul Hadi went as far as to say the aforementioned group of individuals were more reprehensible than religious extremists who detonate explosives and commit murders with far fewer casualties than those who have succumbed to Covid-19 globally.
“There is a lot of news about the existence of religious extremists. However, many have overlooked the current emergence of political extremists, who have forgotten human life in order to achieve their political agenda.
“In Malaysia, there now exists groups that oppose the Emergency declaration as a result of the pandemic.
“It is as if they are not residing on this plague-stricken Earth. The reason is a mere political one to regain power that has been lost,” he said in a statement.
The Marang MP also said these “political extremists” remained completely indifferent to the possibility of impending danger through their constant manoeuvring, regardless of the risks of an ongoing pandemic.
He metaphorically likened said political manoeuvres to “hungry sharks trying to conceal themselves behind a rock” since these “plotters” were finding it difficult to regain power by any means necessary.
