The ulama who wants a Saddam Hussein-like leader for Malaysia


PAS may invite Perlis mufti to witness signing of Umno-PAS alliance

Perlis mufti Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin will be among the prominent personalities invited to witness the signing of the Umno-PAS charter that would solidify the alliance between the two parties.
PAS secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan (photo) said his party may send an invitation to the mufti to ask him to attend the ceremony on Sept 14.
“Perhaps we would invite the Perlis mufti to the signing of the charter.
“We will send an invitation. I think he should welcome this initiative as an ulama (religious scholar),” he told reporters when met during a campaign to fly the Jalur Gemilang in Kota Bharu today.
The Kota Bharu MP said this when asked about the meeting between Mohd Asri and several PAS and Umno leaders yesterday.
Elaborating on the visit, Takiyuddin said it was merely a personal visit.
“I was made to understand that it was just a personal visit between friends. The Perlis mufti is on good terms with us, so there are no problems,” he said, dismissing the suggestion that there was a purpose for the visit.
Mohd Asri had made a Facebook post about a visit by several PAS and Umno leaders at his home, yesterday.
Among them were Bachok MP Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz and his younger brother, Nik Adli; Arau MP Shahidan Kassim and Kangar Umno division chief Fathul Bari Mat Jahaya; and the disciple of the controversial Islamic preacher Dr Zakir Naik, Muhammad Zamri Vinoth Kalimuthu.


  1. Birds of the same feather, flock together, as the saying goes. I am disappointed with Dr Asri....Bet my bottom dollar, from now till the next election, it will all be about race and religion coming from the opposition. The f__K with nation building.

  2. Toonsie laments that the hardest part of the PM's job is race relations. I have done a deep drill analysis.

    Chinese don't have problems with Indians.
    Indians don't have problems with Ibans or Kadazans
    Kadazans don't have problems with Orang Asli
    Orang Asli don't have problems with Sikhs
    Sikhs don't have problems with Chinese.

    So where's the problem? Can someone point out Toonsie's problem to me?

    Hardest part of PM job is race relations, Dr Mahathir says
    28 Aug 2019

    PROTECTING race relations is the hardest part of being prime minister, Dr Mahathir Mohamad said in a video clip in conjunction with the country’s 62nd Merdeka.

    In the four-minute clip posted on YouTube and on his social media accounts, the prime minister said his wish for young Malaysians is to safeguard the country’s multiracial character and to work at bringing the races closer together.
