KUANTAN, March 25 (Bernama) – The spat between PAS and their political partners over hudud law proves that the Opposition’s (Pakatan Rakyat) struggle is based on the ‘politics of convenience.’
UMNO vice-president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said the hudud issue revealed that Opposition parties (PAS,PKR and DAP) have different political struggles.
“Their common cause is to seize power for position, to swear at leaders and to divide the society. The rakyat can judge them,” he told reporters after handing over house keys to military personnel at Sungai Panching, here today.
When asked to comment on the UMNO stand on hudud, Hishammuddin said “Hudud is Allah’s command, but as the Prime Minister (Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak) had said, it all boils down to implementation.
“The Opposition can’t even explain hudud to their partners, let alone to the public. Why involve Barisan Nasional and UMNO when they are the ones behind hudud?
