PAS, Umno should avoid attacking one another: PM

(Bernama) – PAS and Umno should avoid insulting or hurling attacks against one another, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

He said such an act was not only prohibited by Islam but also because the two parties used to work together under Muafakat Nasional, which had now become strained.

“We shouldn’t be making attacks at each other because the ties may be rekindled again in the future. In politics, we are not forever enemies, and it is not forever that we are friends, and as such, we should avoid hurting other people’s feelings.

“Who knows, one day we will sit together again for the sake of the Muslim ummah and the Malays in the country. If we make baseless allegations, it will only create animosity for one another hurt,” he said to reporters after launching the P090 Bera Barisan Nasional (BN) machinery..

Prior to that, Ismail Sabri, who is also Umno vice-president, opened the Bera Umno divisional meeting at the Bera District Council Convention Hall here.
