Stop PAS from tabling Bill, DAP dared

PETALING JAYA: DAP needs to stop PAS from tabling the hudud Bill, instead of challenging MCA to tell Umno to reject hudud, said Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong.

In a statement yesterday, the MCA deputy president criticised DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang for not standing up to PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang when his party continuously called for hudud to be implemented.

“Lim’s attempt to divert attention by challenging MCA, and thus shirking responsibility on the hudud law issue, has only exposed the party’s hypocrisy.

“Other than blaming us, DAP, which has the most MPs within the Pakatan Rakyat, is unable and incapable of stopping PAS from tabling the hudud Bill,” he said.

Dr Wee noted that there was only one easy way to resolve the issue, which was for DAP to stop PAS from tabling the Bill.

“MCA will oppose any attempt that will jeopardise the Federal Constitution and the spirit of nation-building.

“We have already taken a firm stand against hudud law, and our president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said he has already informed Umno about the party’s stand and has urged Umno not to support the Bill,” he added.
