PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang recently denied claims that PAS’s relations with the opposition coalition led by DAP only started to worsen after the death of the late Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat.

He insisted that even before his death, Nik Aziz had sensed some ‘problems’ with DAP and discussed the matter several times without informing others.

The PAS Mursyidul Am was worried over DAP’s alleged increasing use of racial and religious rhetoric.

"The truth is Nik Aziz himself had said he was uneasy with DAP and Pakatan Rakyat, which displayed negative attitudes towards religious and racial issues,” said Hadi in an interview with China Press.

He added that after Nik Aziz’s absence, DAP became increasingly vocal in disrupting the Islamic ideals of PAS by meeting with a few PAS leaders to incite disorder within the party and becoming brokers between the coalition and the party.

“PAS has its own principle to this day, due to the implementation of Islam in its policies.

“The leadership of PAS is now continuing the legacy of previous leaders, especially Tuan Guru Nik Aziz, who was still with PAS when he passed away. 

“He never left the party and was consistent in presenting about Islam in the Parliament,” he said.

Hadi explained that DAP had a history of attempting to exert control over their political allies, and claimed that they were the ones pulling the strings on Pakatan Harapan and its chairperson, Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

The leader also urged non-Muslims not to worry over the enforcement of sharia laws in the country via the amendments of the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965 (Act 355), commonly referred to as RUU355.

“Only power-hungry politicians will create worry among the non-Muslims to reject the amendments of RUU355,” he said.

Earlier DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng had pointed out that Hadi should be more like the late Nik Aziz who was inclusive towards other races and respected by many non-Muslims.
