Dr Zuhdi said on his Facebook page that the options of the party leaving the coalition was a request made by a PAS leader of the central committee WhatsApp group.
In the leaked conversation, Dr Zuhdi brought up the possibility of PAS working with Umno while retaining Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim as Selangor Mentri Besar. He also spoke about returning power to Muslims in Selangor.
Dr Zuhdi said he was "disgusted" at the way the messages were leaked as he deemed them private and confidential.
“This discussion which was leaked was my response to the members of the WhatsApp who asked me to present a scenario analysis about the proposal by a PAS leader to leave Pakatan Rakyat.
“The motion was supported by not less than 10 members in that group and many of them were close to Anwar Ibrahim,” he said.
He added that they welcomed the proposal and some said that it should be discussed during the Aug 10 party meeting, instead of the issue surrounding the Selangor Mentri Besar.
"This suggestion was welcomed by all and I was asked to present it. As such, I began making a brief analysis, imagining the possible scenarios if PAS leaves PR.
"There were some who had said that it was better for PAS to be on its own so that can be freer to criticise," said Dr Zuhdi.
Dr Zuhdi believed the message was leaked by one of the members in the WhatsApp group.
“By doing so, it shows that the individual is up to no good. It was done to link my name to the proposal to bring PAS out of the coalition after I had strongly criticised Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on the Mentri Besar crisis in Selangor," he said.
He stressed that he was not part of the group who supported the motion to leave Pakatan and hoped that his name would be cleared following his explanation of the matter.
