PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man rejected Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng’s proposal for PAS to accept Malaysia as a secular country if it wanted to woo non-Muslim voters.

Tuan Ibrahim countered by saying that DAP’s manifesto indicated the party’s goal of “fighting for Malaysia as a secular country”, which he claimed clearly showed that Malaysia is not a secular country as said by Lim.

“Malaysia is not a secular country. If it was, why should DAP include ‘to fight for a secular country’ in its own manifesto?

“Islam is the official religion of the federation. Then there is the idea of Malaysian Malaysia. No Malay can accept the concept of equality,” he said at a press conference during the PAS muktamar (annual general meeting) at IDCC Shah Alam today. – Malaysiakini
