I call upon PKR Sarawak to severe its tie with PAS Sarawak so that we, DAP Sarawak and PKR Sarawak can work together for the betterment of Sarawak.
The Kelantan hudud law episode and the subsequent events that unfold have clearly shown that the political ideals and agenda of PAS does not fit into our Sarawak society.
In fact, few months before we DAP Sarawak decided to quit from Pakatan Rakyat (PR) Sarawak, I have requested PAS Sarawakto make a resolution and statement that hudud law is not suitable for Sarawak and that PAS Sarawak will not pursue the implementation of hudud law in Sarawak.
Sad to say, myrequest was turned down by PAS, indicating clearly that the implementation of hudud law is also the political agenda of PAS Sarawak.
We all know that the implementation ofhudud law will do no good to the State of Sarawak. Therefore, there is no reason for us in Sarawak to continue cooperating with PAS who has made clear about their hudud agenda.
The issue may be more complicated in West Malaysia where PAS, especially the progressive faction of PAS, has an important role to play to counter the dominance of UMNO in the rural areas. This is not the case in Sarawak where there is no UMNO.
My Question to PKR Sarawak:
Knowing the true agenda of PAS, is PKR going to help PAS win seats in the coming State elections so that Sarawak DUN will have some PAS elected representatives?
If the answer is “YES”, then PKR will be doing a disservice to Sarawak by contributing to the growth of PAS in Sarawak thereby helping indirectly the hudud agenda in Sarawak. If the answer is “NO”, then there is no point to put up a pretence of coalition when one does not help each other.
Therefore, I urge BaruBian not to be so adamant about clinging on to PR Sarawak which, in essence, was broken the minute PAS shown its true colour and pursued the hududagenda.
I believe, more can be achieved for the betterment of Sarawak with PKR Sarawak cooperating with DAP Sarawak rather than cooperating with PAS Sarawak.
