Sack the bustad!

Posted on August 5, 2011


Malaysianinsider reports that Selangor MB Khalid has personally communicated the regret of the state government to the Damansara Utama Methodist Church over the raid by JAIS at the multiracial dinner held at the church 2 nights ago.

However, Selangor exco member in charge of Islamic affairs, Hasan Ali, appears unrepentant over the incident and appears to be undermining the position of the state government taken by the MB.

Malaysiakini reports that Hasan has made some very serious allegations about what was taking place at the dinner in question, including, the proselytisation of Muslims, presumably to Christianity.

Hasan also alleged that the organisers had tried to destroy evidence of some sort when the raid started.

Evidence of what, he does not say.

This is not the first time that Hasan has been the centre of controversy in the state.

Let us also not forget that he was a key player in the negotiations with UMNO immediately after the 12th GE with a view to trying to form a PAS-UMNO unity government in the state.

The resolution of this matter has gone beyond a mere apology by the state government to the aggrieved parties.

Unless Hasan can substantiate every single allegation he has made with regard to this latest fiasco, it is time that PAS sack him and the MB do the necessary to remove him from the office that he now holds in the EXCO.

Anything less than this must be read as a condonation by the Pakatan Rakyat leaders of this man who appears intent on sowing discord amongst the rakyat of Selangor.
