PUTRAJAYA: Umno has not made any offer to former Selangor PAS Commissioner Datuk Dr Hasan Ali who has been sacked by PAS, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said.
Asked of the possibility that Dr Hasan may join Umno, Muhyiddin said as an experienced and capable leader, he (Hasan) can join any political party deemed suitable for his ideology.
"In his case, we (Umno) never made any offer. I believe Hasan is a capable and experienced leader. If he feels drawn to any political organisation, that is his choice.
"There is no reason to rush things. If the struggle for Islam is no longer PAS' struggle, then it is up to his wisdom to make his own decision.
"Umno opens its doors to anyone interested and are ready to fight for our struggle," he told reporters here.
He stressed that what happened to Dr Hasan was a PAS internal matter, which Umno had never interfered, but in Umno, there was a democratic system based on Islam.
Muhyiddin, also Umno deputy president, said Umno would have given the former Selangor PAS commissioner 'a chance to defend himself' and not expel him arbitrarily, as PAS had done.
"If a member commits an offence, no disciplinary action will be taken without giving him a chance to defend himself, more so if he is a leader," he said. BERNAMA
