PETALING JAYA: PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang was summoned to give a statement regarding the police report made against him.
According to Hadi’s assistant, the Marang Member of Parliament will be at the Sentul District Police Headquarters (IPD) at 3pm to record his statement.
The assistant said, it follows a police report made by several parties before.
Hadi previously claimed that DAP promotes Islamophobia and prevents PAS from coming to power.
He also described the Pakatan Harapan component party as “immoral”.
Hadi used a football analogy to say that even if one team wins, the referee “suddenly gives extra time” to give the losing team a chance “to win by any means”.
His comments, which were quoted from a column he wrote in the official language of PAS, Harakah, were interpreted as referring to the Agong’s call to form a federal government of unity.
Meanwhile, Ampang PKR Communications Head Syafiq Zulkifli yesterday urged the police to take strict action against Hadi, who described the inciting statement as a threat to national unity.
“The hatred that politicians like Hadi are trying to sow causes disharmony and stunts economic growth because it can affect investor confidence.
“Strong action must be taken by the police against those who challenge the sovereignty of the country and those who are involved in any element of betrayal against the order of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to establish a unity government,” he said in a statement.
It follows a police report made by the NGO Raudhatul Muslimin against Hadi, saying that his statement was slanderous and not in line with Islamic teachings, in addition to disturbing public order.
The NGO also accused Hadi of disrespecting the Constitution and the Agong.
