Muslim NGO Seeks PAS’ Help To Stop Pig-Rearing Project In Malacca

About 300 members of a non-governmental organisation, Majlis Permuafakatan Ummah (Pewaris), gathered in front of the Bandar Baru Bangi Stadium, near here Monday night to hand over a memorandum seeking PAS’ assistance in efforts to stop the pig-farming project in Masjid Tanah, Malacca.

A minor commotion broke out when the Pewaris members were initially prevented from entering a talk on abolishing the Internal Security Act organised by PAS.

However, after negotiating for more than 10 minutes, the organisers allowed five Pewaris members to enter the stadium to hand over the memorandum.

Pewaris deputy chairman Rahimuddin Md Harun later handed over the memorandum to PAS vice-president Mohamad Sabu and PAS Youth head Salahuddin Ayub.

Pewaris and the Gabungan Gerakan Melayu Muda (GGMM), representing the residents of six villages in Malacca, want the PAS leaders to assist them in resolving the problems regarding pig-farming.

About 30 police personnel from the Kajang District Police Headquarters maintained security at the stadium. (The Star Online)

*****
By submitting this memorandum to PAS, Pewaris and the Gabungan Gerakan Melayu Muda have essentially put the Islamic party on a sticky wicket. If PAS comes out in strong support of this demand, it will immediately alienate the very crucial Chinese vote and put a damper on PAS' national aspirations. If it simply ignores the memo then its sincerity (and credibility) takes a hit. A damned if they do, damned if they don't situation.

to make it short,they gonna be damned if they take action or not in this matter.if PAS give their support to PEWARIS then Kedah PAS will also have to scrap their plan to open a pig farming project there.

if PAS refuses to cooperate then PAS gonna be accused as not Islamic and neglect the Muslims plea.

It is not in the best interest of Muslims in Malaysia if pig farming is eradicated in the country.

Imagine what would be the prices of beef, lamb and other meats if Non-Muslims were not be able to consume pork .

I am surprised that these NGOs approached PAS for assistance. Since these NGOs are very much pro-UMNO, why didn't they approach UMNO instead, especially when Malacca is under UMNO as well? If they have done so, that could only mean UMNO have turned a deaf ear for fearing of losing Chinese votes. So likewise, PAS should do the same thing. Just ignore the memorandum.

Hear Hear 8:27 PM MYT. Well said.
Especially when the useless parasites calling themselves NGOs refuse absolutely to divulge the funding they receive, even after the Sun media urged them to do so.

Like all useless dingbats they want their moment of media highlight.

Are not pigs one of God's creation as well? Why the discrimination on these poor animals?
