PETALING JAYA: Those who want to overthrow the Perikatan Nasional government actually fear its ability to solve the country’s problems, says Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.
The PAS president said the strength of the Perikatan government is a cause of concern for those in the country who do not want to see Muslims united.
“The Perikatan Nasional government which has shown positive changes will be challenged because the dominance of Muslims and the non-extreme group is feared to be able to solve many problems, which will unite the Muslims.
“As such, all people must be aware and realise this. Don’t be fooled anymore and stop the rotten elements that are conspiring to eliminate Islam in this country.
“There is already a movement to topple the Perikatan government by any means necessary,” he said in a statement yesterday.
His statement comes after the Yang di-Pertuan Agong expressed his great disappointment over the steps taken by the Perikatan government concerning the revocation of the Emergency ordinances.
This has led to many opposition MPs and other parties pressuring Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to resign as Prime Minister.
Abdul Hadi added that after the 14th general election, more Muslims were aware of the weaknesses of a “secular government dominated by non-Muslims” – referring to the Pakatan Harapan administration.
“The Muslims who were influenced by (this government) became no more than slaves, even after they fought for such a cause.
“They follow and voice their defence of this government’s plans, which were subtly crippling Islam and its followers by making sure they remain inattentive and mute,” he added.
He said he was thankful that Allah had united the Muslim and bumiputra parties of Umno, PAS and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia to reject such extreme approaches.
“In the end, we managed to form the Perikatan Nasional administration because we understand that extreme approaches will not save the country or its people.
“This was the weakness of the Pakatan Harapan government during their brief time in power as a result of its fragile victory that was fraught with deceit,” he said.
Abdul Hadi also said there was a global resurgence of Islam and a decline in the powers of countries that had engaged in colonialism.
“Even so, they are still hindering efforts for countries to return to Islam,” he added.
Citing current events in Tunisia and the past coup attempt in Turkey, he said that there were always powers seeking to hold back the advancement of Islam.
