Police reports will be lodged by Pakatan Harapan members against PAS president Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang following his recent speech against the coalition.

Amanah mobilisation bureau secretary Farid El-Amin, when met outside the Dang Wangi police station on Sunday (Oct 16), said that the reports would be lodged nationwide following the PAS president’s allegations stating that Pakatan Harapan were, among other things, pro-communism and anti-Islam.

“This is malicious slander while we get ready to head toward the upcoming elections.

“I challenge him to bring proof that Pakatan brings these agendas,” he said.

Ahmad Zarul Afiq, who is also a member of Muda’s central executive committee, said that the youths were sick and tired of such politics.

“I am afraid that this will be a trend and the upcoming elections will show such campaigns.

This is the time to debate on policies that would affect the people,” he said.

Meanwhile, DAP’s Lim Lip Eng has lambasted Hadi for his accusation that Pakatan Harapan (PH) is harbouring communists and anti-monarchists, saying the PAS president should lodge a police report if he really believes so.

The incumbent Kepong MP said if Hadi fails to do so, then his claims were merely lies and therefore the latter should then apologise to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and the public for his remarks.

“If it is true that there are communists and those who reject the King within PH, then I challenge Abdul Hadi to file a police report within 48 hours because this involves a very serious offence and a treacherous act of disobedience against the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and the country.

“If Abdul Hadi fails to file a police report, it means he lied in his speech and he should apologise to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and the people,” said Lim in a statement, referring to Hadi’s morning sermon in his constituency of Marang, Terengganu on Friday that was streamed live on Facebook.

In the sermon, he said the Islamist party will continue to oppose PH, claiming that the Opposition coalition is harbouring communists, anti-monarchists, supporters of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, and those involved in bribery.


Hadi did not provide any proof behind his allegations.

He had in August said corruption stemmed from those who reaped profit through illegal means, and claimed non-Muslims and non-Bumiputera were at the root of corruption in the country

Federal police Bukit Aman had then summoned him for his remark, but no action has been taken against him.
