PETALING JAYA: Hidden enemies from within are trying to stop Muafakat Nasional from being a stable political base for Perikatan Nasional, say Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu).
Its information chief Wan Saiful Wan Jan said these individuals – whom he did not name – were trying to split the Malays, especially Muafakat Nasional, the loose cooperation between Umno, PAS and Bersatu.
He also said it was time to get rid of political polemics.
"The unveiling of Perikatan in Sabah on Sept 9 is a manifestation of Bersatu's commitment in Sabah, which is rich in diversity," said Wan Saiful in a media statement on Thursday (Sept 10).
He further stated that leaders of these parties must take it upon themselves to come down hard on individuals who hatch their plots from within.
"It is unfortunate that there are a few individuals who still do not want the Malays to unite.
"They are hidden enemies who are the provocateurs of the Malays. They do not care about the people who are fed up with disunity.
"Party leaders must not give way to any of these individuals, who have a bad agenda to break up the Malays.
"These enemies are now getting fiercer in destroying the unity of the ummah (Muslim community). They are very active in spreading lies, even about Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who the rakyat refers to as 'abah' (father).
"This goes against manners within any friendship and oversteps boundaries," said Wan Saiful.
He further said that the formation of Muafakat Nasional was important to create political stability, with the Malays and Bumiputras as the base of a coalition which is "service-oriented".
