KUALA LUMPUR, May 10 – DAP Chairman Lim Guan Eng has called on Malaysians to lodge police reports against PAS President Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang for his divisive, extremist and racist politics that could threaten national unity and integration.

In a statement, Lim had referred to Hadi’s recent statement that non-Muslims and non-Malays as “the biggest group of plunderers, and those who give and receive bribes”.

“This is nonsense when corruption is colour blind and a national problem confronting all ethnic communities,” said the former Penang chief minister and finance minister, adding that such targeting was also a dangerous provocation to the unity government.

Lim described Hadi as being desperate to disrupt, destabilise and even destroy the unity government led by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim by continuing to openly target non-Muslims and non-Malays. 

Failure to counter this dangerous attempt to sabotage, undermine and replace the unity government that had won a vote of confidence in Parliament would be tantamount to being disrespectful to the King and Parliament, he said.

Lim said this was not the first time that Hadi had singled out non-Muslims and non-Malays for all the problems faced by Malays.

He also questioned the insinuation that Muslims in the country had lost power when all important positions in the country were still held by Malays or Muslims.

“Even in the 28-member Cabinet, there are only nine non-Muslim ministers. And out of the 148 unity government MPs, 77 government MPs are Muslims which is more than the 72 Muslim MPs in Perikatan Nasional,” he said.
