PAS plans to turn the PAS supporters club, which also accepts non-Muslims as its members, into a party wing to further strengthen the party.
PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang said the support from non-Muslims for the party appeared to be on the rise and this was proven by their eagerness in helping the party machinery in facing several by-elections previously.
“We have succeeded in breaking the barrier that separated us from the non-Muslims. We have not only reached a stage where we cooperated with the non-Muslim parties, but also non-Muslim individuals,” he said.
He said this to reporters after opening the 13th Terengganu PAS Leadership Conference at the PAS headquarters, Kubang Lembik, Manir, near here today.
The conference was also attended by Terengganu PAS commissioner Datuk Harun
Taib and PAS national secretary Datuk Mustafa Ali.
Geronimo's Take: Although it is good to receive the above news, let's hope there will be no more talk of banning this and banning that from now onwards. Many non-Muslims can only take so much. When it finally comes to one ban too many, the non-Malays will start deserting the party and PAS will be back to square one. Leverage your Islamic humanism against the arrogance and corrupted UMNO.
