Parti Amanah Negara strategy director Dzulkefly Ahmad has likened PAS' touting amendments to Act 355 as a solution to the country's ills to a doctor misdiagnosing a patient.
He said before a cure is administered, the disease and syndrome need to be identified first.
In the case of the country, Dzulkefly noted, it was facing racial and religious divisions, a multitude of scandals including 1MDB, rising cost of living due to austerity measures and erosion of the country's institutions.
"In a situation like this, people ask how amendments to Act 355 would resolve the people's troubles.
"The picture (given by PAS) is akin to a doctor misdiagnosing and providing the wrong medication.
"Or, more accurately, the doctor does not provide a diagnosis because he professes to be an expert on the patient's disease. There is no need to know the cause of the disease," Dzulkefly said in a statement today.
