PAS Youth : Don't get involved in the demo
PAS Youth has urged party members not to take part in tomorrow’s [Jan 08] planned demonstrations, saying the protests would not resolve the row over the “Allah” ruling, and might instead tarnish the image of Islam.
PAS Youth has instead opted to send a letter to Nicholas Murphy Xavier Pakiam, the Archbishop of Kuala Lumpur, seeking a meeting and dialogue, according to Harakah Daily.
“We urge the Muslim community to stay calm and not do anything that will harm the image of Islam,” said Kamaruzaman Mohamad, head of PAS Youth Wilayah.
“We fully agree with the PAS central leadership that dialogue is the best way,” he said.
“We believe that a meeting will provide greater opportunities for positive results and we can better explain to them the feelings and wishes of the Muslim community.
“Given the sensitivity of the issue, this is the more mature and sincere way of finding a solutiion.”
He said the views of other communities and religious leaders would also be sought.
According to him, there was still room for diplomatic discussion and it was wrong for certain quarters to instigate provocative reactions that only served to worsen the situation.
