DAP Sarawak will have no choice but to consider taking the final step to leave Pakatan Rakyat.

In light of the “back-stabbing” by PAS in the tabling of the hudud bill in Kelantan, it is now either PAS or DAP in Pakatan Rakyat Sarawak. Given the said betrayal, DAP Sarawak will have no choice but to consider taking the final step to leave Pakatan Rakyat.
As of now, I see no other option but the break of PR Sarawak.
However, as this is the most important decision to be made since I took helm of the State Committee in June 2013, I shall convene a DAP Sarawak State Committee meeting to decide on the matter and get endorsement from the full committee soon.
Meanwhile, it is to be noted that the Kelantan Hudud amendment bill was fully supported by UMNO, which is the backbone of Barisan Nasional. It is a collaboration of both PAS and UMNO in pushing through this hudud law.
There is no question that DAP shall take a strong stand against the implementation of hudud law in Malaysia. More importantly, all the non-UMNO parties in BN must also make their stand loud and clear, not only to PAS but also to UMNO.
When Sarawak join with Sabah, Federation of Malaya and Singapore to form Malaysia, it is a condition that Malaysia shall remain a secular State. This is especially so as there is till this day no official religion for Sarawak.
The move by PAS, supported by UMNO, has undermined the formation of Malaysia.
Therefore, I call upon all political parties in Sarawak to condemn the passing of the hudud law and any attempt by any person or political party to undermine the secular status of Malaysia, be it by PAS or UMNO.
