A Strong DAP And No UMNO Presence Are The 2 Key Reasons Why Sarawak Became The Second State Government And First BN State Government In Malaysia To Oppose Implementing Hudud.(en/cn)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister And DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 16.5.2014.

One week ago I had declared that the Penang state government will not implement hudud in the state and urged all other BN state governments to follow suit. The Penang state government welcomes Sarawak as the second state government in Malaysia after Penang to affirm that hudud will not be implemented in the state. Clearly Sarawak followed Penang in not implementing hudud because it is unconstitutional.

I welcome the assurance given by new Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem at the Sarawak State Assembly yesterday, that hudud will never be implemented in the state and Malay-language Bibles containing the word ‘Allah’ will never be seized by the government. There are two key reasons why Sarawak became the first BN state government to declare that hudud will not be implemented in the state.

One, there is a strong DAP presence as the largest opposition party with 12 State Assemblymen and secondly there is no UMNO in the state. Clearly the other BN state governments will not follow the example of Sarawak because either there is no strong DAP presence or they are dominated by UMNO.

This clearly shows that MCA and Gerakan are unable to have any influence on UMNO in terms of policy and decision-making. Would MCA or Gerakan set as a condition for rejoining Cabinet, that BN and UMNO dissolve the joint technical committee on hudud set up by Putrajaya and the Kelantan state government to study the implementation of hudud in Kelantan?

Their failure to even voice this personally to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak only reaffirms that MCA and Gerakan cannot be trusted and are more interested in the perks and privileges of government posts than upholding principles. It is completely dishonest and irresponsible for MCA and Gerakan to talk only about opposing implementing hudud in Kelantan by PAS but not by UMNO.

UMNO must bear full responsibility for this joint technical committee on hudud because it was initiated by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyidin Yassin. Further it was an UMNO Minister that proposed on 27 March 2014 in Parliament that PAS move a private member’s bill in Parliament to implement hudud on Muslims in Kelantan and promised the BN government’s and UMNO’s full support for PAS.

Without full support from UMNO’s 88 MPs, there is no possibility of hudud becoming law in Kelantan. Any Chinese organisations and mass media that only pressure PAS not to implement hudud without similarly pressuring UMNO, are mere puppets of MCA and Gerakan.

槟州首席部长及民主行动党秘书长林冠英于2014年5月16日在吉隆坡发表声明:

砂拉越成为全马第二个反对伊斯兰刑事法的州政府(第一个国阵州政府),是因为它有一个强大的行动党及没有巫统。
一个星期之前,我宣布槟州政府绝不会在槟州推行伊刑法,也促请其它国阵州政府一起反对。槟州政府欢迎砂拉越政府成为全马第二个反对伊斯兰刑事法的州政府。很明显地,砂拉越跟随槟州的脚步,不推行伊刑法,因为它是违反宪法的。

我欢迎砂拉越州首长丹斯兰阿德南沙丹昨天在砂州议会做出的宣布,那就是砂拉越绝不会推行伊刑法,及砂州政府也绝不会没收马来文版《圣经》。砂州是第一个宣布不推行伊刑法的国阵州政府,其中有两个主要原因。

就是砂州拥有强大的行动党做为砂州最大的反对党,行动党拥有12个州议员及州内没有巫统。很明显的,其它国阵州政府不会像砂州这样表达反对立场,因为它们没有强大的行动党,也被巫统垄断。

很明显地,马华及民政党没办法影响巫统的政策及决策。马华及民政党会不会设定重新入阁的条件,那就是国阵及巫统必须解散由布城及吉兰丹州政府成立来研究于丹州推行伊刑法的联合技术委员会?

他们没有办法亲自向首相拿督斯里纳吉表达他们的立场,一再证明马华及民政党不能相信,他们对官位及官职更加有兴趣,而不是他们捍卫他们的原则。马华和民政党只反对伊党在丹州推行伊刑法,却不反对巫统。

巫统必须对这个联合技术委员会的成立负起全责,因为这是副首相丹斯里慕尤丁倡议的。再说,那是巫统部长在2014年3月27日的国会上唆使伊斯兰党国会议员提呈私人法案,以便在丹州推行伊刑法,国阵部长也承诺国阵政府及巫统全力支持伊斯兰党。

如果巫统88名国会议员不支持,丹州便不可能推行伊刑法。任何华裔组织或媒体如果只是向伊斯兰党施压而不针对巫统,都只是马华及民政党的傀儡。
