Pre GE13: Will Pakatan Rakyat and PAS Falls Apart???

Looking at recent developments on Pakatan Rakyat matters, I was having such disbelief of what’s happening to them. To me, it was (and is still) a ploy to confuse Barisan Nasional and their supporters. Why?

  1. Dr Hasan Ali was sacked a day before a judgment would be passed on DS Anwar Ibrahim. If a ploy was planned, I have no surprise if Dr Hasan Ali to re-join back PAS in few days time after the court decides (be it DS Anwar guilty or acquitted). So, if anyone from Barisan Nasional too quick to use him against Pakatan Rakyat or PAS, they would be trapped in psy-war and cy-war. Further, would give added advantage to Pakatan Rakyat by saying Barisan Nasional was proven trying to distort harmony within Pakatan Rakyat’s coalition. Whatmore if those words uttered by Dr Hasan Ali;
  2. DS Hj Hadi’s backing out from polls could be another ploy to confuse Barisan Nasional. As certain might say, he is testing the water. He is testing how much support he has left after Dr Hasan Ali sacking from PAS;
  3. PAS asked DS Anwar to retract the statement on the Israel issue or file a summon. However, PAS might say that DS Anwar’s statement on Israel in the WSJ article has been misunderstood after a close meeting among them.

The incidents are vital in determining the next few days, weeks or even months of Pakatan Rakyat and fence sitters ahead of GE13. It is also a test how strong PAS in Pakatan Rakyat and how significant is DS Anwar, DS Haji Hadi and also Dr Hasan Ali towards Pakatan Rakyat’s chances to Putrajaya (other than Lim & Son and Karpal Singh).

Since the formation of Pakatan Rakyat, PAS has been always seem to be number 3 by rank of 3. In other words, in the event DAP or PKR do not agree to them they will follow what the other two parties said with an excuse as following the majority. In principle, yes, PAS has been following the majority of two from 3 main parties in Pakatan Rakyat. This also shows how PAS is not being able to get PKR to agree with them (especially on Islamic matters), what more DAP.

Why PAS is in the limelight of majority muslim and bumiputera in Malaysia, not DAP or PKR? Why the sacking of Dr Hasan Ali is seen to be important and become a catalyst for another issue known as “Third Force” (and not Datuk Ibrahim Ali)? Why DS Anwar and TG Nik Aziz early to respond that Hj Hadi is badly needed, but no fast response from Lim & Son and Karpal Singh?


PAS has always being seen the best alternative of UMNO. Not DAP, not PKR. Yes, DS Anwar and some credible leaders of PKR is there in PKR, but PAS as a party are much closer to Malaysian muslim and bumiputera than them. Anything misdeeds done and UMNO is hopeless to handle, many will look for what PAS have to say. So do vice versa when PAS failed to act well, UMNO’s view will be sought after.

In other words, PKR and DAP is nowhere near to majority muslim compared to PAS when it comes to seeking directions.

And when PAS is stepping up and seen to be firmer than before, of course what have been projected by Pakatan Rakyat has to be revised and re-analysed.

From my point of view, this development is not really surprising to me. After the “agree to disagree” decision on Hudud and somehow it upsets many muslim (and also some incidents including the church raid), PAS know they have to step up. They know that they have to take the lead if they want to be seen significant in shaping the future of Malaysia when Barisan Nasional reign as government ends.

However, as said earlier, if the developments are just a ploy to confuse Barisan Nasional and make BN to be over-confident, is PAS playing the prime role, or just a pawn in Pakatan Rakyat’s plan?

For now, I can see that PAS’ direction is shifting a little bit, but still in Pakatan Rakyat original route. This is due to certain individuals that seem to be in line with DS Anwar more than TG Hj Hadi and TG Nik Aziz. For example, Mat Sabu’s stand on DS Anwar’s Israel issue differs from what have been decided by Majlis Syura of PAS. Being as Vice President of PAS, should not Mat Sabu know when Majlis Syura sits and discussed the issue? Should not Mat Sabut know it is better to wait for what Majlis Syura to come with a decision?

Will Pakatan Rakyat and PAS falls apart? Will within PAS themselves, PAS will fall apart?


Question on the street: How much PAS can cover what DS Anwar has done? Until when?

  1. I feel sorry for PAS. I rasa lebih baik parti ini bergerak solo daripada bergabung dengan PKR dan DAP. Eventhough BN is not near to perfection, at least we know what is their objectives, missions and vissions and crystal clear. Mungkin betul kata Tun Dr M, kita sekarang takut berbicara pasal Melayu, Cina, India dan lain2 sebab takut dikatakan rasis sementara pembangkang bangga dengan Malaysian First nya. PAS-DAP-CAP coaliation in not even legal. Sebuah pakatan yg dibentuk selepas PR12 dan bukan sebelum itu. Ini jelas menunjukkkan mereka sebenarnya memberikan rakyat model perpaduan palsu dan gula2 kerana keikhlasan bersatu tiada sebelum PR12. Secara jujur, jika Malaysia jatuh ke tangan pembangkang, Malaysia mungkin hanya akan bertukar menjadi negara republik. Ini kerana, hanya Kelantan akan menadi negeri hudud, Penang menjadi negeri DAP dan Selangor akan menjadi negeri PKR. Kerana halatuju masing2 adalah berbeza dan sudah tentu jika negeri2 ini tidak ditawan, negeri2 ini akan menjadi model rekabentuk acuan parti tersebut dan bukan seragam. Entah2 akan keluar dari Malaysia. Hanya pandangan peribadi.

  2. and yes, the answer for your question, PAS will do anything to cover everything to support Anwar as Anwar does for his selfish self to support Israel. I bet Anwar will use his normally sweet and how guilty he was because all those people spin his statement as like always BN already paid WSJ to take him down. and PAS will be six feets under when they cant cover Anwar’s dirty closet anymore.

    p/s: what do you think about Terengganu MB said PAS is actually a Parti Ajaran Sesat? I personally think PAS did way worst than that to UMNO and BN.

    1. Darlyn,
      I’ve watched the video of TG Haji Hadi’s speech when he delivered later known as the “Amanat Haji Hadi”. It was indeed a catalyst for some understanding which causes incidents in our muslim community.

      As to really “sesat” or not, let both of them prove. For all I know, the chant “PAS – Parti Ajaran Sesat” has been long used by many, as a response to UMNO Kafir…

      Political rethoric?

      Thank you for your comment 🙂

    Rumah Pangsa
    Blk A-7-9- Jln Padang Tembak,
    11400 Pulau Pinang,

    Dear Devotees,

    Before I commence of my letter-writing toward. All of you, I would like to inform all of you that I am not satisfy with the lawyer, Dato YIP KUM FOOK (MCA chairman Gombak) due to his bad inspirit impressions because he sent an inspector to come to our SAMNAK SAMBODHI BUDDHIST TEMPLE, 19 Jalan 38 Taman Desa Jaya Kepong, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to arrest me without any good reason, moreover, the lawyer, YIP KUM FOOK is not satisfy with Chief monk.

    When the Chief monk had me to go to his Temple already and he went away and left me alone to take care until Chief monk come back to the Temple first and he also told me not to leave the Temple if any committees or the chairman want to chase me out, you don’t leave the Temple at all understand? Then I said, alright? To the chief monk! On the second Day, YIP KUM FOOK(MCA Man) came to our Temple and talk to me. He tired to make some inquiry from me and he asked me, where I come from? I told him that I came from Penang.

    Then, I told to the lawyer (YIP KUM FOOK, MCA Man) that the chief monk came to Penang and fetch me and invited me to accompany him to go to his temple in K.L. I am not aware that YIP KUM FOOK(MCA chairman Gombak) is not in a good terms with the chief monk, chief monk already in this way, YIP KUM FOOK try to create trouble with me unnecessary. That is why, the lawyer want to chase me out of the Temple. Then I asked the lawyer, why you want to chase me out of the temple? Moreover, the Temple is not belonging to you, UNDERSATAND? Then, I asked him, who are you? I don’t know you at all, you have no right to chase me or control me at all, UNDERSTAND? You are just like a layman only. Do you know the regulations that any the chairman or committee cannot control the monks and the Nuns at all, also UNDERSTAND?

    I scolded him like that. Then the lawyer (YIP KUM FOOK, MCA Man) is not satisfy with me and he told me that he will called the police to come to the Temple and arrest me. I told him to go ahead and called the police to come and arrest me. I won’t run away, I said to him like that. I have done nothing wrong toward you, why you want to arrest me? He said, he doesn’t like me to stay here. I asked him, why? Again. After this he got very angry with me, then he phoned up to the police and the police came to the Temple and told me to leave the Temple.

    I told to the inspector of the again, I am sorry, I won’t leave the Temple because the chief monk had instructed me not to leave the Temple without his consent, UNDERSTAND? Then the inspector told me to leave, again. I told him I cannot leave the Temple because the Chief Monk hasn’t come back yet. This time, the inspector got very angry with me and he took out his handcuff and try to threaten me, then I immediately show off my hands for him to lock me up but he scare, then again, the inspector told me leave the Temple again but I still don’t want to leave the Temple.

    Then I phoned up to the chief monk again and I told him that the inspector insisted want to arrest me, you better come back to settle the case for me. After this incident, Chief Monk came back to the Temple and take me to go to another temple and stay their. That’s all about this incidents! Last of all, I would like to inform all of you, that no committees or the chairman can control all the monks and Nuns at all also UNDERSTAND? “They are higher than the King,” also! So how can the laymen, the committees and the chairman to control them: – EVEN THE KING ALSO RESPECTED THE MONKS AND NUNS. Why the chairman doesn’t respect the monks and nuns? They will carry the sins later on, UNDERSTAND?

    Yours in Dhamma
