KOTA BAHARU: Kelantan PAS, in concert with several party leaders, has rejected the effort of certain parties trying to topple the government through violence and street demonstrations.
Kelantan deputy Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah said the effort to topple the government via the ‘Arab Spring’ would not be beneficial but would instead be detrimental to the nation.
“Kelantan PAS rejects violence or going down to the streets because it is not suitable in Malaysia as it will bring much evil to the country.
“We wait another three years at least and select through a general election.
“We in Kelantan too have never discussed whether it is necessary for us to gather like in other countries.
For PAS, it is better, regardless for what purpose, that it be done in accordance with democracy,” he told reporters at his office, here, yesterday.
Nik Mohd Amar, who is also Kelantan PAS Deputy Commissioner 111, on the other hand, said it would not be wrong if a gathering was peacefully held to criticise and protest against the government.
Recently, the PAS Headquarters also stood firm against backing any effort to topple the government using violence.
Its secretary-general, Datuk Mustafa Ali said this was because there were still avenues available especially through the court or petition to challenge the result of the 13th general election (GE13).
Meanwhile, PAS Youth deputy chief Nik Mohd Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz also rejected the effort to topple the federal government, which was picked legitimately by the people in GE13, through a series of street gatherings and regarded the action as hasty.
Nik Mohd Abduh, who is the son of PAS Spiritual leader, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat also invited the public to think of victory through patience and not through an ‘explosion’ on the road. — Bernama
