Pas Don’t Use Quranic Verses To Cling To Power – Shafie Afdal
GUA MUSANG, Oct 28 – The Kelantan PAS government should not use Quranic verses to stay in power as it has failed to bring development to the state.
Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal said the people need development to improve their life and not indoctrinated by Quranic verses and hadis that the Barisan Nasional (BN) government is unislamic.
“The BN government plans and implement projects for the people’s benefit. We don’t crow while the people suffer from lack of employment.
“Don’t be fooled by talks using Quran verses and hadis that BN is unislamic for cooperating with MCA,” he told reporters in Kampung Lepan Jaya here today.
Shafie said the people should know what was interpreted was inaccurate as in the religion’s context, the people should come first.
On housing, he said the people’s housing projects (PPR) should not be politicised as the federal governnment was just helping the poor to own houses.
The federal government recently announced RM180mil allocation to build 1,500 houses under (PPR) in Gua Musang for the benefit of 10,000 poor people.
Shafie said the people could judge whether BN government was cruel as claimed and compare it with the PAS government.
“Did they build schools and hospitals? …. No….They only put up PAS flags all over the place including hilltops,” he added.
