KUALA LUMPUR: The MCA questions Pakatan Rakyat’s hesitation to make an official stand on PAS’ all out move to implement the party’s hudud in Kelantan.
MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai has also singled out DAP, saying the party must be held responsible for PAS’ act.
“How can it be that DAP, being an ally of PAS, was unaware of the party wanting to table a Private Member’s Bill in Parliament to push for hudud in Kelantan?” he asked.
The Bill is to amend the Federal Constitution to pave the way for hudud implementation in Kelantan.
PAS which failed to table it this month will be trying to do it again in the sitting in June.
Yesterday, Liow said the MCA’s stand on hudud was very clear, and the party would go all out to stop it if and when the Bill got tabled.
He also urged Umno to reject PAS’ hudud move.
PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang was reported as saying he wanted to meet Umno lawmakers to get their support for its intention to implement its hudud.
On the Bukit Gelugor by-election, Liow said a meeting would be held on Tuesday to determine if the party would field a candidate for the May 25 election that arose from the death of incumbent Karpal Singh last week.
Liow spoke after officiating The Hakka’s Imagery show by the KL/Selangor Meizhou Association at Wisma MCA yesterday.
The performance, featuring exciting audio visual effects and 76 dancers from Guangdong, China, tells of the Hakka people’s custom and culture through folk songs and dances.
“This year is the 40th anniversary of Malaysia and China’s diplomatic ties, and the fact that the show was fully supported by the Meizhou authority shows that the Malaysia-China relations are ever strong and solid,” he said.
The performance was divided into six segments, each detailing the Hakka community’s migration history, music and religious rituals.
