An extract from from Malaysia-Today’s quote of The Star Online’s article Hasan: PAS has lost sight of the Malays:
(The Star) - Embattled PAS leader Datuk Dr Hasan Ali has continued his tirade against the party, saying that it has lost sight of the Malays since coming under the Pakatan Rakyat banner.
He said PAS had veered away from its fundamental role as a defender of Islam.
“In the rush to take over Putrajaya, we may end up forgetting our core group of supporters the Malays,” he said in an hour-long interview on TV3's Soal Jawab.
Here’s the solar-powered 'savior' of Malay Unity being confused between the supranational supra-ethnic supra-caste religion of Islam and the Malay race.
He was further quoted as saying: ….. a victory for Pakatan and by extension PAS in the next general election would be meaningless under the current arrangement if nothing was done to uphold the place of Islam, the Malays and the royal institution, three issues which he said formed the core of his political struggles.
Since he has shown no evidence to prove that Pakatan is anti Islam, anti Malays and anti-monarchy (all 3 issues are also UMNO-owned accusations against Pakatan), can we safely conclude he is another of the UMNO noises, albeit a solar-powered one?
Of course he won’t willingly leave PAS because he knows his usefulness to UMNO, like any solar-powered frogs, will be sub-zero the moment he steps into the UMNO shade.
So despite his mAjor disagreement with PAS' political objectives he steels his thick face to be extra thick-skinned and malu-lah, shamelessly stays back in PAS. I can only guess that by remaining in a party which he claims to have a meaningless political objective, he will be able to continue fermenting dissent in that party.
