MH17 If anyone had incurred God's wrath, it is Kedah PAS Youth information chief Ahmad Tarmizi Sulaiman for saying that those in the downed MH17 lost their lives due to Malaysia Airlines' sins, said MIC.

Party director of strategy S Vell Paari said Ahmad Tarmizi's "divine logic" only shows that he is "intoxicated with stupidity and recklessness".

He said that instead of showing mercy and compassion, as taught in Islam, Ahmad Tarmizi ( left ) "rubs salt into the gaping wounds" of those who lost their loved ones on the flight.

"It is he who should be struck down by lightning for uttering such distasteful things," he said in a statement late last night.

Ahmad Tarmizi, in a press statement, said that MAS has been hit with a double tragedy because it incurred Allah's wrath for serving alcohol on board and its female flight attendants do not adhere to Muslim dress code.

Meanwhile, Vell Paari urged PAS and Pakatan Rakyat leaders to "censure" Ahmad Tarmizi to prove that the party and coalition do not share his "myopic" views.

"This is a time for all Malaysians regardless of race, religion and political ideologies to unite in grief. There is no room for idiots during a time of such a grave crisis," he said.

MAS' Flight MH17 fell in eastern Ukraine after it was shot down on July 17 en route to Kuala Lumpur, killing all 298 passengers and crew on board, including children.

Flight MH370, which disappeared off radar screens on March 8 with 239 crew and passengers on board has yet to be found.
