Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 10.3.2019.

Is PAS willing to shed its extremist image by withdrawing and apologising for unconstitutional and seditious remarks that non-Muslims/non-Malays should not be appointed as Ministers and their inflammatory lies that non-Muslims now control the Federal Government? If PAS is not willing to do so, how can PAS blame non-Muslims and non-Malays from Peninsular Malaysia as well as Sabah and Sarawak, for feeling gravely threatened when this fundamental right enshrined in the Federal Constitution, which has never been questioned before, is now openly attacked by both PAS and UMNO. For the first time, the PAS and UMNO combination has questioned the funding of vernacular schools, to the extent of even threatening to close them down.

PAS vice-president Iskandar Samad has denied claims that his party’s cooperation with Umno will give rise to an extremist government in Malaysia and instead claimed PAS received strong support from the non-Muslim PAS Supporters Congress or DHPP, as well as through the involvement of non-Muslims in PAS-led state governments. DAP congratulates PAS for successfully recruiting both MCA and MIC to support its extremist positions. For this reason, the PAS Youth President has openly praised MCA as better than DAP, even though MCA openly questioned my approval for the funding of sekolah agama rakyat and sekolah tahfiz.

However, PAS should know that both parties received little or no support from non-Muslims and non-Malays and are viewed as little puppets of UMNO. Furthermore, much as PAS likes to pretend that there is non-Muslim involvement in PAS-led state governments in Kelantan and Terengganu, no non-Muslim or non-Malays in Peninsular Malaysia or Sabah and Sarawak wants the Federal government to be run like Kelantan and Terengganu, with minimal or no non-Muslim involvement.

The non-Malay and non-Muslim community and religious bodies, including Sabah and Sarawak, feel threatened that they are made the scapegoats by PAS and UMNO for problems in Malaysia, where it is permissible to lie for PAS, where corruption scandals by Muslim leaders is secondary to whether a leader is a non-Muslim, even though the non-Muslim leader is honest and competent.

PAS was a moderate and compassionate party believing in justice for all under the revered Allayarham Datuk Seri Nik Abdul Aziz when he was still alive. Sadly the PAS under Nik Abdul Aziz that sees non-Muslims as an ally against injustice and corruption is now no more, but replaced by an extremist PAS that sees non-Muslims as a target to attain political power.

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼国会议员林冠英于2019年3月10日在吉隆坡发表的文告。

若伊斯兰党真的要洗脱他们极端的形象,他们是否得先为他们那“非穆斯林不可担任部长”的违宪煽动言论,还有“非穆斯林已经控制了联邦政府”的煽动性谎言郑重道歉?

若伊斯兰党真的要洗脱他们极端的形象,他们是否得先为他们那“非穆斯林不可担任部长”的违宪煽动言论,还有“非穆斯林已经控制了联邦政府”的煽动性谎言郑重道歉?既然伊党根本不认为自己是极端,那为何如今伊党与巫统公然一唱一和攻击非穆斯林与非巫裔原本就受到宪法保障的基本权力,将一切归咎于他们,让他们感到受威胁。伊党与巫统的结盟导致开始质疑母语学校的地位,甚至是首度扬言要关掉母语学校。

伊党副主席依斯干达沙末否认他们与巫统结盟将会让极端的政府在马来西亚崛起,相反的他声称伊党获得“伊党非穆斯林支持者代表大会”DHPP的强烈支持,还有在伊党执政州获得非穆斯林积极参与州政府事务。行动党要恭贺伊党成功收纳马华与国大党成为其极端立场的支持者。也因为这样,伊党如今公然赞扬马华比行动党优秀,即便马华公开质疑我批准拨款给人民宗教学校及背诵可兰经学校。

无论如何,伊党应该知道上述两党皆不再会获得非穆斯林及非巫裔的支持,都只被视为巫统的小傀儡。再者,伊党还在掩耳盗铃,假装活在非穆斯林积极参与伊党领导吉兰丹与登嘉楼州事务的假象当中。现实恰好相反,无论半岛或沙巴及砂拉越的非穆斯林与非巫裔,都不希望联邦政府如吉兰丹及登嘉楼一样,只有少数的非穆斯林参与或根本没有非穆斯林参与的施政。

非巫裔与非穆斯林社群及宗教团体,包括来自沙巴与砂拉越的群体,都对伊党及巫统将他们当成马来西亚各项问题的代罪羔羊感到受威胁。伊斯兰党可以纵容谎言,对于穆斯林领袖贪污认为是次要问题,反而领袖是否非穆斯林的问题显得更重要,无论非穆斯林领袖多诚实或有才干都于事无补。

伊党在已故精神领袖聂阿兹仍在世领导时,是一个世俗充满热枕,并相信公义正义的政党。令人感到伤心的是自聂老去世后,那个将非穆斯林群体视为盟友,一起反对不公不义与贪污的伊党已经不复存在,取而代之的是一个将非穆斯林视为攻击目标以获取权力的极端伊党。
