WITH MALAYSIAKINI: Anwar Ibrahim on Hudud?

Remember the recent fatwa on YOGA? Everyone jump on the wagon and yell. As a prelude to KT by election, Hudud is laid down as another alluring ploy. As Veeranggan is suggesting in Malaysiakini, there is a need for affected party to state their stand. Many agree on the intimacy of both fatwa and Hudud to the Muslims that open discussion may not be such a good idea.

  • Hudud laws - Anwar must clarify Pakatan's stand from Malaysiakini
  • Athi Veeranggan | Dec 23, 08 4:04pm
  • A political analyst says as opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim is duty bound to step in the current spat over the Islamic law issue and state Pakatan Rakyat's official stand once and for all.
2. Anwar is too busy with bumi kenyalang to entertain the latest ploy on Hudud. Kuala Terengganu will not add substantially to his credential as the PM in waiting. But Bumi Kenyalang is something else. If Anwar is to be the next PM soon, he really has to fly low over Bintulu, Miri and Bintangor seeking support from the Foo Chows. The dayaks I suppose has been very much like the rest of us.

3. Anwar probably had noticed the importance of minorities in closely fought seats. Hindraf is a living proof! He probably be very busy tuning up his strategies.

4. Hudud is an old issue. It is best to put aside for a while......
