KAJANG: PAS is courting danger by asking DAP to be banned, says PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

He said it was dangerous to "teach" the new ruling government to ban a party.

"I think PAS still follows the old way of thinking, asking for ban. That's old politics," said Anwar.

"It is also dangerous for PAS. So, don't," he said after opening the 6th Seminar on Bangsa Malaysia here on Saturday (Oct 26).

He said this in response to PAS deputy president Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man's call to ban DAP.

Tuan Ibrahim had said the call to ban DAP was justifiable, and alleged that its leaders had undermined the principles of statehood and the Federal Constitution.

He noted that DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng had penned the foreword message in the recently banned Belt & Road Initiative For Win-Winism comic book written by Hew Kuan Yau.

On the issue of former Umno minister Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak's application to join PKR, Anwar said some party leaders had expressed conflicting views, but they would get the views of other branch leaders in Sabah before making a decision.

"No decision yet. We listen to all views first," he said.
