Chinese to support PAS, not MCA or Umno

Chinese to support PAS, not MCA or Umno

THE majority of Malaysian Chinese today would rather support PAS than MCA or Umno which is helmed by non-God-fearing leaders.
PAS has made it clear that the hukum hudud (Islamic criminal law) would only apply to Muslims.
However, Umno is unclear of its stand on hudud with deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin having said that hudud would be implemented when the time is right.
It is a pity that, after 55 years, the MCA today has only one issue for Malaysia and the Chinese community – hudud.
What the MCA is doing is insulting Muslims and Islam. Why is Umno allowing MCA to do that? I think we all know the answer.
Former premier Mahathir Mohamad, who is still influential in Umno, has said that he would prefer the syaitan (devil) that he knows than Pakatan Rakyat (PR). This clearly shows that he is no God-fearing individual.
No God-fearing individual, and that includes true Muslims, will choose the devil.
Mahathir is the cause of the country’s current economic woes as he had made more than 100 amendments to the laws of the country to suit his gravy train agenda.
This has resulted in Malaysia’s current federal debt at RM502.4 billion or 1.3% short of the legislated 55% debt ceiling.
Part of the 10,000-people crowd’s mood is captured here.

One of the most telling misdeeds that he made was in 1991, when he amended the Land Acquisition Act 1960 to enable the state governments to grab land cheaply and then allocate property development projects to Barisan Nasional (BN)-Umno cronies and the elite in the private sector.
This has been happening in Johor the past decade. Malay ancestral land, including cemeteries, were and are being acquired to enrich the cronies. Tebrau, Pasir Gudang, Nusajaya and Pengerang are the few examples of land grabs in Johor.
After 55 years of corrupt rule, there must be change. This time we must change.
