Pas tells S’pore: DAP is extremist and fanatic party

RANTAU: PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang related to a crowd of 3,000 that he told Singapore High Commissioner Vanu Gopala Menon that DAP is an extremist and fanatic party during a recent visit from the Singapore envoy.

“We could not work with DAP because they are extreme and fanatical,” he told a crowd of about 3,000 at Taman Angsamas here.

He also stressed on the need for a leader who can lead a multiracial society for Malaysia during his meeting with Menon, he said.

He was speaking at a ceramah in support of BN candidate Mohamad Hassan of Umno. Mohamad is in a four cornered tussle with Pakatan Harapan (PH) candidate Dr S Streram of PKR and two independents.

BN component party leaders – MCA vice president Senator Ti Lian Ker and MIC deputy president M Saravanan too attended the talk.

Several years ago, PAS and DAP had a fall out due to differential views over plans to introduce hudud in Kelantan. That resulted in the collapse of the Pakatan Rakyat coalition which also included PKR.

Hadi who is also Marang MP also said that he previously reiterated the same concerns to Singapore former Minister Mentor, the late Lee Kuan Yew.

PH the Pak Pandir government

In rooting for Mohamad, he also labelled the current PH government as a Pak Pandir government since the current government constantly blamed the former BN government.

“When you debate in Parliament (they keep saying), ‘ask the old government (BN)’.

“(PH speaks) like Pak Pandir, ‘it’s not my child who died, it’s someone else’s child that died too’. This is a Pak Pandir philosophy,” Hadi said.

Pak Pandir is figure in classical Malay literature described as a bumbling fool who always gets himself and his family into trouble.
