PAS minister Khairuddin Aman Razali is trying to cover up the fact that he was wrong in breaching Covid-19 quarantine by using religious and racist sentiments, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said today.
According to Lim, Khairuddin had yet to offer any evidence to back his assertion that Pakatan Harapan and DAP in particular had acted against Islam and the Malays by highlighting his failure to comply with the mandatory 14-day home quarantine after he returned from a trip to Turkey.
“To escape from his immoral, sinful and illegal act, Khairuddin has put up a post blaming PH and DAP again for these ‘little issues’.”
“He has posted a warning that PAS as protectors of Islam and defenders of the Malays, must act against those who insult and push aside Islam and the Malays. No evidence was given by Khairuddin how PH and DAP has acted against Islam and the Malays.
“Khairuddin must not think that Malaysians, including Muslims themselves, are so gullible as to be deceived by him, that playing up extremist religious and racist sentiments can save him from his wrongful actions,” Lim said.
Lim said that Khairuddin and PAS’s attitude towards his quarantine breach was a poor example for Malaysians, given that PAS is now a ruling party.
“For PAS to consider the minister a hero, when he and his family openly breached Covid-19 standard operating procedures set up by his own government, just demonstrates the twisted the value system of PAS.
“This can pose a clear and present danger for Malaysia now that PAS is part of government,” Lim said.
“Khairuddin is definitely not a hero for breaking the 14-day home quarantine rules and not wearing a pink bracelet.
“The actions of Khairuddin in breaking the law is not only immoral and sinful, but also illegal,” the Bagan MP added.
Yesterday, the police said they will soon submit the investigation paper over Khairuddin’s failure to comply with a mandatory home quarantine after returning from Turkey in July.
