Firm stand: Liow and members of the Sabak Bernam MCA division saying ‘no’ to the implementation of hudud in Malaysia.
SABAK BERNAM: MCA will initiate legal action against PAS if the Islamist party pursues its plan to implement hudud in the country.
Party president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said PAS must not be allowed to create disunity within Malaysia’s multi-racial and multi-religious community with its hudud agenda.
The spirit and provisions of the Federal Constitution did not allow for hudud to be implemented here, he said.
“I have directed our legal bureau to look into initiating action against PAS if it continues to persist in implementing hudud here,” he told reporters at the Sabak Bernam MCA division swearing-in ceremony on Tuesday night.
Liow said the foundation of the country, since its independence, was based on cooperation and consensus among all races.
PAS, he said, was trying to break this as well as the spirit of the Federal Constitution.
“MCA will go all out to defend the country at all costs and will not allow PAS to change the Federal Constitution,” he said.
On another matter, Liow lambasted the Selangor government for not ensuring that the state had sufficient water supply.
“They were too engrossed in political play. As a result, it has neglected the interests of the people.”
He urged everyone to get together to pressure the state government to provide adequate water so that the people would not face further inconveniences during the next dry spell.
Liow also said many businesses were hit as commercial projects had to be halted because of the rationing.
On MCA, Liow said the party would return to its past glory soon and regain the Chinese community’s trust.
“MCA will deliver the Chinese votes,” said Liow, adding that members were working hard towards strengthening the party.
