Kit Siang wants Takiyuddin to retract his “poisonous propaganda” reference in non-Malay PM brouhaha

PAS secretary-general Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan should apologise and withdraw his recent reference of the constitutional provision that any Malaysian can be a Prime Minister (PM) as “poisonous propaganda”.

He should also be referred to the Parliamentary Committee of Privileges whether he had violated his oath as a MP to “preserve, protect and defend” the Federal Constitution.

As if his unconstitutional act was not enough, he added oil to the fire when he described the proposal of DAP Federal Territories chairman Tan Kok Wai to restore local government elections starting with Kuala Lumpur as “toxic narratives”.

On top of that, Takiyuddin has the cheek to claim that PAS is of the view that “the motive of both their statements (is) to strengthen DAP’s position and power by abandoning the core values that bound all quarters to sane, moderate and reasonable agendas and political culture”.

When Takiyuddin says that the issue of non-Malays being able to become PM is a “poisonous propaganda” which has the potential to create an atmosphere of disharmony, is he suggesting that the Federal Constitution and the Rukun Negara are divisive and inflammatory documents?

Instead of asking PM Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to “control and stop DAP’s toxic narratives”, will Takiyudden set out to make PAS more moderate and less extremist?

Will PAS shed its extremism and become a moderate Islamist party in keeping with the Malaysian Constitution and Malaysia as a multi-ethnic, multi-religious, multi-cultural and multi-civilisation country? – Dec 20, 2023
