In reference to this article (https://m.malaysiakini.com/news/475059?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook) published in Malaysiakini today, PAS has cross the line in asserting that a fate akin to the Uyghur Muslim minority in China awaits Malay Muslims if non-Muslims are left to run the country. There is absolutely no basis for such an assertion which in fact goes against Islamic teachings of peaceful and harmonious coexistence with other cultures and religions.
PAS’ paranoia and delusion stems from political insecurity, and seeks to cause racial tensions and distrust among Malaysians who wish to live in a diverse, inclusive and progressive country. This is evident by their bias and distorted interpretations of ICERD, the Rome Statute and allegations that the unfortunate demise of fireman Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim is a sign of the erosion of Malay rights in the country.
PAS’ unfounded insistence that the Federal Constitution is under threat and that non-Muslims are out to destroy Islam in Malaysia is further proof of their deliberate attempts to use religion for their own political purposes. Pitting Malaysians against each other is not only detrimental to the rich racial and cultural heritage of our country, but also impedes economic progress which should be the priority of all politicians given the financial circumstance we find ourselves inheriting from the previous administration.
Sisters in Islam demands that PAS stops this agenda of deliberately instilling fear and inciting racial and religious hate among Malaysians. Islam is a religion of peace and compassion that respects all cultures, and does not allow suspicion and discrimination simply on the basis of race.
