PETALING JAYA: PAS will not accept the stance of labelling any Malay-Muslim group as their "main enemy", says Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan.

The PAS secretary-general in a veiled remark said that this is vital when it comes to matters involving the position and power of Muslims in governing a country where the majority are Muslims such as Malaysia.

This follows the remarks by Perikatan Nasional chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin reminding the coalition's component partners that Barisan Nasional was its main enemy in the 15th General Election (GE15).

"Such remarks are inappropriate and awkward if the party labelled as the main enemy is also one of its own partners in a coalition government," Takiyuddin said in a statement.

PAS, Takiyuddin added, was confident that unity among Malay-Muslim parties would ensure stability, fairness and would protect the interests of all Malaysians.

PAS leaders and members are also urged to abide by instructions from the party's spiritual leader Datuk Hashim Jasin that all who want unity and stability in the country strive toward the agenda of uniting the ummah.

The Islamist party had previously said that it was open to forming alliances with Malay-Muslim based parties, but has closed its doors to any collaboration with Pakatan Harapan.

It said the party would continue to prioritise its "unification of the ummah" theme in its political stance, and would avoid teaming up with any component party from Pakatan.
