PAS Youth chief: It is Nur Jazlan who needs to undergo mental examination

PAS Youth chief Ahmad Fadhli Shaari has taken a swipe at Johor UMNO deputy chairman Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed for pretending not to understand the intended context of sedekah (charity) “which is the offering of money from other than the candidate or the candidate’s representative and has nothing to do with the candidate”.

Now that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) had opened the investigation papers on the matter, Ahmad Fadhli said there is nothing much that can be done or need to be said.

“What is certain (however) is that the Deputy Prime Minister who is also the UMNO president (Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi) is and will spend a lot of time in court,” the Pasir Mas MP pointed out.

“Jazlan has said the PAS president was languishing from psychological problems and depression. The fact is that he (Jazlan) seems to be more psychologically traumatised himself.”

On his Facebook post dated Jan 24, Nur Jazlan said he suspected that PAS president Tan Sri Hadi Awang is suffering from extreme political depression and anxiety which led him to “sitting, complaining and busy interfering in the establishment of the unity government”.

Nur Jazlan then went on to chide the Marang MP for issuing a new fatwa (a formal ruling or interpretation on a point of Islamic law given by a qualified legal scholar) in which offering monetary bribes to voters is not considered corruption but deemed as charity.

“Hadi legalised bribery to buy votes which to him is not a major sin,” he contended. “Hadi issued this new fatwa after Barisan Nasional (BN) filed three petitions challenging the GE15 (15th General Election) results in three parliamentary seats in Terengganu, including the Marang constituency which he (Hadi) won by bribing voters.”

Added Nur Jazlan: “Hadi is now worried that a big disaster would befall him. It is not impossible that he will become part of the court cluster like the UMNO leaders whom he always accused.”

Chiding Nur Jazlan further, Ahmad Fadhli suggested that UMNO members grouped together to collect funds as donations or alms for the former to undergo a mental examination.

“Your own friends will continue to isolate you if you worry continuously like this,” cautioned Ahmad Fadhli.

“Pity this creature, earnestly showing off to the leadership of his party that has power in the current government that he deserves to be rewarded for supporting the top leadership at the national level at least.”

Ahmad Fadhli also reminded Nur Jazlan that when the Johor Menteri Besar himself asked the UMNO president to step down – and that the Johor UMNO chairman himself agreed that the positions of the party’s president and deputy president should be contested – Nur Jazlan had to buck the trend by “standing up as a staunch supporter of the UMNO president”.

“He (Nur Jazlan) said Johor UMNO did not meet in this regard. Really? Or he himself is in the midst of being boycotted,” added Ahmad Fadhli. – Jan 26, 2023
