PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is against PAS because the Islamist party has been responsible for dividing the Malay community since pre-Merdeka days. 

In a lengthy statement on his blog, Dr Mahathir claimed that PAS, then known as Pan Malayan Islamic Parti (PMIP), was formed by disgruntled Umno members who weren’t selected to be leaders by Tunku Abdul Rahman, at the tail end of British rule.
