Poodle to PAS

Pix: Normala Sudirman, PAS candidate in Tenang by-election

By Sharifuddin A Latiff

More Hypocrisy First!! Story continues …

The opposition is ever ready to slam Gerakan and MCA as being ‘lapdogs’ to Umno. But aren’t DAP the same lapdog to PAS?

Najib apparently caved in to Perkasa and as a result, NEM was watered down. Has Karpal been similarly cowed by PAS?

He was the last conscientious objector to the party’s Islamic state agenda. But we haven’t heard anything from the DAP chairman since he last said (at the Pakatan convention in Penang not too long ago) that the contentious issue can no longer be sidestepped.

‘Of bigger concern is that Nasrudin’s announcement also indicates that PAS commands Pakatan Rakyat without regard or care for the wellbeing of other Pakatan Rakyat component parties…’ — Chua Soi Lek

DAP is running with the hares and hunting with the hounds.

In Tenang, the DAP people were all out with their long knives against their traditional Chinese rivals and Chua who had criticized the PAS candidate Normala Sudirman for her [‘Queen Elizabeth’] hands.

Is Normala really all that different in her religious conservatism from the ustazah on YouTube who said that “Anyone behaving like those in a particular ethnic group (i.e. who have the tradition of Valentine’s Day) is considered a part of the group (i.e. “sinful Christians”)?

Doubtless Normala did not utter any derogatory remarks against other religions but nonetheless both women adhere to the same rigid religious fundamentalism.

The difference is that Siti Nor Bahyah Mahmood caused offence in a multiracial society whereas Normala is bringing her ‘this cannot, that cannot’ into multiracial politics, and her ‘cannot-ism’ is fully backed and cheered on by the so-called secular Pakatan partner, DAP.

Don’t mistake me. I’m a Mr GSM (Gender-Sensitive Male) myself to Normala’s scruples in refusing to shake hands with yang bukan mahram, tapi to me, while she’s not at fault, her DAP promoters are — for their Hypocrisy First.

    I wish DAP would have more backbone. The whole idea of a diverse coalition is to compromise on some issues but be firm on others. PAS seems to be more dominant now.
