SHAH ALAM: PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang claims that after the Islamist party’s landslide victory in the 1990 general election in Kelantan, the prime minister then asked PAS to pass hudud laws in the state assembly.

"After we won the 1990 elections in Kelantan, the prime minister at the time, I am not going to mention his name, asked us to pass hudud laws in the state assembly.

"Once he told us that, we formed a committee to study it and set the laws.

"Before we brought it to the state assembly, we organised seminars to enlighten people on the law. Political parties and local and foreign NGOs attended it," said Abdul Hadi in a dialogue session organised by Sinar Harian in Shah Alam Wednesday.

PAS, who was with opposition alliance Angkatan Perpaduan Ummah (APU) in 1990, won all 39 state assembly votes in the election.

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was the prime minister then.

The Kelantan state assembly unanimously passed the Syariah Criminal Code (II) 1993 (Amendment 2015) Bill on March 19 to pave the way for the implementation of hudud.

Abdul Hadi later filed a notice to table a motion on the Bill in Parliament but it was not discussed in the recently ended sitting.
