A PAS leader has accused DAP of being responsible for putting non-Malays into positions of power such as attorney-general, chief justice and de facto law minister.

“We are doubtful about the legal system and the judiciary which is not under the control of Muslims. 

“When we raise this issue, they say we are racist, but they have grabbed these three positions and have not given anything to Muslims,” PAS information chief Nasrudin Hassan Tantawi said in Kg Sg Purun, Semenyih.

Attorney-General Tommy Thomas, Chief Justice Richard Malanjum and de facto Law Minister Liew Vui Keong are the targets.

Nasrudin alleged that DAP lobbied for these positions even before the 14th general election.

“They are carrying out DAP objectives. They have also failed to uphold the nobility of law. I’m not surprised if they delay taking action on certain matters.”

Nasrudin also alleged that the DAP is controlling the government and calling the shots in Putrajaya.

Umno Youth chief Dr Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki also questioned Thomas on the case of a man who allegedly insulted Prophet Muhammad.

“Are we confident that this A-G (Thomas) will take action? If we don’t make noise, then they will not take action.

“If we let this be, then it will let them belittle our religion.”

On Friday, a 68-year-old man arrested for allegedly insulting the Prophet on Facebook was released on police bail.

Asyraf said if the Attorney-General’s Chambers delays taking action, then they will hold a rally in Putrajaya.

Meanwhile, it was reported that two people who allegedly mocked Islam will be charged in the next 48 hours.

One is a senior citizen who allegedly insulted Prophet Muhammad on Facebook last week while the other is a man accused of placing idols at the entrance of a surau in Klang.

Earlier today, factory worker A Taneson, 22, was charged in the Shah Alam magistrate’s court with insulting Prophet Muhammad on Facebook.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge of causing disharmony, disunity or feelings of enmity, hatred and ill-will on grounds of religion among the people of different religions in the country.

All three can be jailed for up to five years if found guilty.
