Datuk Seri Hadi Awang Should Show Proof Because DAP Had Never Agreed To The Implementation Of The Hudud By PAS In Kelantan Before Or After Pakatan Rakyat(PR) Was Established In 2008.(en/cn)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 27.4.2014.

DAP is surprised by PAS President Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang’s claim that the PR Leadership Council had agreed to PAS’ intention to implement the hudud law in Kelantan. If Abdul Hadi was correctly quoted, then he is wrong and should show proof to back his claim because DAP had never agreed to the implementation of hudud by PAS on Muslims in Kelantan before or after PR was established in 2008.

This is the first time that I have heard that DAP has agreed to PAS implementation of the hudud law on Muslims in Kelantan. DAP top leadership whether Lim Kit Siang or the late Karpal would never have agreed because it is unconstitutional. Abdul Hadi has made an unfortunate mistake and wrong statement. DAP hopes that Abdul Hadi can show proof and if he fails to do so, then a correction should be issued.

Pakatan Rakyat comprising PAS, DAP and PKR operates by consensus from all 3 parties. If any one party disagrees, then it is not PR policy. PAS intention to implement the hudud is PAS policy and not PR’s policy, because DAP is consistent in opposing the implementation of the hudud law.

Clearly in failing to secure PR support for implementing the hudud law, PAS is now turning to UMNO. Despite UMNO’s opposition to the hudud law from former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad until Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in 2011, PAS is willing to trust that UMNO is not playing politics to recapture Kelantan.

In opposing the implementation of the hudud law for Muslims, Dr Mahathir Mohamad stated that Muslims in Malaysia are not ready for it and that it would not be fair to have different penalties between Muslims and non-Muslims for the same offence. In his years as Prime Minister from 1981-2003, Dr Mahathir had even refused to meet PAS leaders on implementing the hudud law.

Similarly, Datuk Seri Najib had on 25 September 2011 whilst attending the 1Malaysia carnival in Kampar, said that the Government will not enforce hudud law in Malaysia because its implementation must take into consideration the environment and the reality. Najib even said there were already elements of hudud in the present legal system “minus the extreme part”. However, Najib has now flip-flopped on the BN government’s previous position from not enforcing the hudud law to publicly lauding PAS’ proposals to implement hudud law and is willing to meet PAS leaders to discuss this.

No one is surprised that Najib has so easily ignored and dismissed MCA and Gerakan by changing the BN government position on the implementation of the hudud law for Muslims in Kelantan. Najib’s flip-flop on hudud has exposed the double-standards, hypocrisy and lies of MCA in opposing the implementation of the hudud law when BN now publicly lauds it.

However PAS should make a realistic assessment on whether UMNO is playing games as a smart political strategy to undermine and subvert PAS so that it would be easier for UMNO to recapture Kelantan after 24 years. Abdul Hadi should not forget that he was the Terengganu Menteri Besar that passed the hudud law in Terengganu in 2003 and immediately thereafter lost Terengganu in the 2004 general elections to UMNO. By attempting to work with UMNO again on trying to implement the hudud law for Muslims in Kelantan, will history repeat itself and allow UMNO to recapture Kelantan?

===================================
民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2014年4月27日在吉隆坡发表的文告

拿督斯里哈迪阿旺应该出示证据,因为民主行动党无论是在2008年成立民联之前或之后都不曾同意伊斯兰党在吉兰丹实施伊斯兰刑事法。

民主行动党对于伊斯兰党党主席拿督斯里哈迪阿旺声称民联领导委员会已经同意伊斯兰党“有意在吉兰丹实施伊斯兰刑法”的说法感到惊讶。若哈迪阿旺的这项言论被正确引述的话,那他的这项言论是错的,而且他必须出示证据来支撑他的言论,因为民主行动党无论是在2008年成立民联之前或之后都不曾同意伊斯兰党在吉兰丹实施伊斯兰刑事法。

这还是我首次听闻行动党同意伊斯兰党在吉兰丹向穆斯林实施伊斯兰刑法。行动党高层领袖无论是林吉祥或已故的卡巴星皆不曾同意,因为这是违宪的。哈迪阿旺很不幸的犯了错及做出错误的言论。行动党希望哈迪可以出示证据,若他无法做到,就得纠正其言论。

民联成员包括伊斯兰党、行动党及公正党,以3党的共识运作。若任何一个政党不同意,那就不是民联的政策。伊斯兰党有意实施伊刑法是伊斯兰党的政策,不是民联的政策,因为行动党始终如一的反对实施伊斯兰刑事法。

很明显的,因为无法在民联取得实施伊刑法的支持,伊斯兰党现在已经转向巫统。伊斯兰党无视于巫统在前首相马哈迪时期一直到2011年现任首相纳吉为止都在反对伊刑法,却仍然相信巫统不是在玩弄政治以重夺吉兰丹政权。

马哈迪在反对向穆斯林实施伊斯兰刑事法时称,大马的穆斯林还没准备好,而且在穆斯林与非穆斯林间同样的罪行却存在不同的惩罚是不公平的。在他担任首相的1981年至2003年期间,马哈迪甚至拒绝在实施伊刑法议题上接见伊斯兰党领袖。

同样的,拿督斯里纳吉在2011年9月25日在金宝出席1个马来西亚嘉年华时,公开声称政府不会在马来西亚实施伊刑法,因为实施伊刑法得考量环境与现实因素。纳吉甚至说在现有的司法系统上已经在“去除极端的部份”之下,存在着伊刑法的因素。然而,纳吉现在却对之前国阵政府公开声称不实施伊刑法的立场出尔反尔,反过来赞扬伊斯兰党建议实施伊刑法,并愿意会见伊党领袖讨论此建议。

纳吉在对于吉兰丹向穆斯林实施伊刑法的国阵立场说换就换,对马华及民政视而不见及置之不理,并不会让人感到惊讶。纳吉在伊刑法立场出尔反尔,暴露了马华在反对伊刑法的双重标准、虚伪及谎言,因为国阵如今公开赞扬伊刑法。

另外,伊斯兰党必须务实评估巫统是否正在精打细算策略性的大玩政治政治把戏,以破坏和颠覆伊斯兰党,好让巫统能时隔24年后轻易重夺吉兰丹。哈迪阿旺不应该忘记他就是2003年在登佳楼通过伊刑法的州务大臣,并在2004年马上在大选中痛失登佳楼败予巫统手上。伊斯兰党欲透过与巫统合作尝试在吉兰丹向穆斯林实施伊刑事法,难道不怕历史重蹈覆辙,让巫统重夺吉兰丹?
