Husam on real concerns - Star

KOTA BARU: Dec 27, 2008

Non-Muslims should not be unduly worried about hudud but should instead be more concerned about their social rights that have been denied by the Barisan Nasional government for the past 57 years.

PAS vice-president Datuk Husam Musa said hudud had been proven to be effective in Arab countries that had other races within the communities.

“I do not see why the non-Muslims are so worried about hudud when they should first worry about getting equitable rights in education, commerce and social justice,” he said.

Pasir Mas MP Datuk Ibrahim Ali, lambasted DAP for rejecting it outright without even trying to understand it first.

“PAS is entitled to implement hudud and qisas laws if it wins and forms the federal government because Islam is the official religion of the country,” he said.
