Nik Abduh may prefer Muafakat but there are some who prefer PN



Don’t allow Muafakat to fail, says Nik Abduh


Nik Abduh Nik Aziz said the Muafakat Nasional pact that PAS had with Umno was “blessed by Allah” as it had united the two biggest Malay-Muslim parties that had been at odds with each other for decades.

PETALING JAYA: PAS must not allow Muafakat Nasional – the pact it forged with Umno in 2019 – to fail due to clashes among leaders, Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz said.

The party’s central committee member said it would be embarrassing for PAS if it allowed such spats to destroy the alliance, especially in view of the fact that it had cooperated with the DAP for seven years.

PAS, DAP and PKR were part of the now defunct Pakatan Rakyat (PR), the then opposition coalition.

PR was formed in 2008 following the 12th general election. It was declared dead in 2015 after a rift between DAP and PAS over the hudud issue.

Nik Abduh, the son of the late PAS spiritual leader Nik Abdul Aziz, said the pact it had with Umno was one that was “blessed by Allah” as it had united the two biggest Malay-Muslim parties that had been at odds with each other for decades.

He asked if it made sense for PAS and Umno to become rivals once again.

“I am prepared to do away with such foolishness,” he said in a Facebook post.

Meanwhile, Umno Youth chief Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki welcomed Nik Abduh’s stand.

The MN pact had come under scrutiny after PAS decided to contest under the Perikatan Nasional banner in the recently concluded Melaka polls, with some predicting its demise.

Yesterday, however, it was reported that PAS grassroots members preferred working with Umno under MN in the next general election after the party’s failure in Melaka, when it lost in all eight seats it contested.

Last month, Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said it was time for Umno to “move on” from MN although he said the party would not give up on the “real Muafakat Nasional”, which he said was formed to unite Muslims.

    What if the Chinese parties want to come together to unite and protect the interest of the Chinese? And the Indians do the same thing?

    Will the ketuanans sit quietly and just nod their heads? Or will they foam at the mouth calling for jihad to defend the malays and their religion because the nons dare to challenge them?

  3. politically & religiously Chinese won't band together Indians are more religious

    but when it comes to education they will - education being a CENTRAL pillar of Chinese socio-culture - seems Malays and to a lesser extent Indians aren't that interested

    business - so so only

    1. people tend to band together when they are being oppressed especially if they are in the minority which isn't necessarily a bad thing but if you are in the majority and you band together to oppress then it is definitely a bad thing
