Whilst reading from Malaysia-Today, I was rather perplexed to note that Ali Gostan got the guts to challenge PAS by saying PAS is not sincere. In fact it was UMNO that invites PKR and PAS and every Malay NGOs to discuss about Malay unity. So I think Ali Gostan should just go back to the news report a couple of days ago to verify facts and not hitting the Opposition without any merits.
How to become CM????
(Bernama) MELAKA, April 18 -- PAS is not sincere in its invitation to Umno to discuss Malay unity as the party had once accused Umno members to be kafir, Umno Vice-President Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said today.
He said even though PAS leaders had been talking about Malay unity, their actions did not reflect a desire for one.
"I don't believe in the proposal by PAS, because PAS had accused Umno to be kafir... PAS has not started on a good footing (in its call for the unity talk). They are not serious," he told Bernama.
Mohd Ali was commenting on the statement by PAS President Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, inviting Umno to discuss Malay unity with Pas and Parti Keadilan Rakyat.
Mohd Ali said such discussions should be conducted in a sincere manner.
He also said that the Malays would be better united under Umno.
"It's therefore important to strengthen Umno as the party is the pillar of strength for the Malays. If Umno is weak, we too will be weakened," he said.
Meanwhile speaking to reporters after visiting the Taming Sari Tower in Bandar Hilir here, Mohd Ali, who is also the chief minister, said PAS was now in a dilemma to tame the DAP, which objected to PAS' Islamic state visions.
On the other hand, he said, the DAP was also trying to tame PAS over the issue.
"Let's see who will win, the tiger or the lion. So far it looks like the DAP is winning, with PKR being the intermediary," he said.
