Amanah vice president Husam Musa has hit out at PAS organ Harakah for hypocrisy in its attacks on Pakatan Harapan.
In a statement today, the former Salor assemblyperson noted how the official party mouthpiece and party leaders were singing different tunes on Umno-BN.
“I never thought I would see Harakah, as the mouthpiece of the 'Islamic' party, sink itself to the depths of the rubbish of hell,” he said.
He cited a Harakah article claiming Husam had purportedly suggested a commission be formed under Pakatan Harapan to manage Kelantan's oil royalty, which he said was “100 percent slander”.
“Based on that article, Harakah ran the headline 'Harapan is the same as BN' with the subheading, 'PM repeats past mistakes, Husam copies Umno'.
“In another feature, the headline read, 'Husam, LGBT, UEC and Khazanah… where is Malaysia going?'
The Amanah leader said the hypocrisy of Harakah' stand was clear.
“In the sub heading of the article, Harakah shows its disgust with the name Umno. If that is the case, why then are PAS leaders shouting loudly that it is proper for party members to vote for Umno's candidate in the Sungai Kandis (by-election)?” he asked.
He said such actions betrayed the Islamist party's true principles, or lack thereof.
“The flames of enmity lit by Satan is still burning bright have become their practice of faith, and deception and derision is the path Harakah has chosen in their path to please God. Can God be pleased by breaking laws on the forbidden?
“The silence of PAS leaders towards this sin shows what is really embedded within them, between the good and the evil, as far as what they base their politics on is concerned,” said Husam.
PAS leaders have been openly calling for voters to support Umno-BN's candidate Lokman Noor Adam at today's Sungai Kandis by-election.
