PAS welcomes, supports all initiatives to uphold syariah laws, says Takiyuddin


PETALING JAYA: PAS supports the initiatives carried out by the National Council for Islamic Religious Affairs (MKI), which is chaired by Selangor Ruler Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, says Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan.

The PAS secretary-general said this includes the efforts of the Special Committee to that has been set up to study the competencies of state legislative assemblies in enacting Islamic laws and propose amendments to the Federal Constitution and federal laws. if necessary.

“Among others, it is also to ensure the power of the state legislature body in drafting syariah laws that are clearly stipulated without any ambiguity.

“It is no secret this polemic stems from several court decisions and excuses on judgments that have seen state syariah laws not only challenged but also invalidated, exposing them to the possibility of other nullifications in the future.

“As a Muslim society that accepts syariah not only as a responsibility but also a religious right, PAS believes that all steps towards upholding syariah law must be taken and given full support, regardless of party or group,” he said.

Takiyuddin added that PAS was confident in the Malay Rulers as heads of state bearing the historical role as the torch and umbrella of religion, culture and upholding the values and morals as well as the unity and harmony of the people.

On Feb 15, the Sultan Sharaffudin urged all parties to remain calm and refrain from causing any disturbances while waiting for the outcome of the special committee that has been set up to study the competencies of the state legislative assemblies in enacting Islamic laws.

The Selangor Ruler, who is also MKI chairman, called on all parties to respect the verdict of the Federal Court and the position of the Federal Constitution as the supreme law of the country which must be supported by all Malaysians.

This followed a Federal Court 8-1 majority decision on Feb 9, ruling that 16 provisions for offences under the Kelantan Syariah Criminal Code Enactment (1) 2019 were null and void because the state legislature did not have the power to enact laws on said offences as there were federal laws covering the same offences.
