KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 18 — Although Pakatan Rakyat (PR) partners have yet to resolve their disagreement over hudud, the different factions in PAS remain committed to its planned implementation in Kelantan, a lawmaker from the Islamist party said.
PAS central committee member Khalid Samad told Singapore news network Channel News Asia in an interview yesterday that all views from within his party are in support of the controversial Islamic penal code.
“One thing that I have to clarify is that there is no conflict as far as the scholars and the professionals (within PAS) are concerned pertaining to the implementation of the Islamic law, be it in Kelantan or anywhere else,” Khalid, who is also PAS MP for Shah Alam, insisted.
The lawmaker was speaking to Channel News Asia on the fate of PAS after the recent death of its spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, alongside Datuk Abdul Halim Sidek, a law professor at Universiti Malaysia Kelantan and an UMNO member, and Dr Farish Noor, a Malaysian-born associate professor at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
