Penang DAP will be donating RM10,000 worth of relief supplies to Kelantanese affected by the flood. The items will be handed over by a Penang DAP team flying to Kota Bharu tomorrow.
The hantaran committee comprises party state chairman Chow Kon Yeow, DAP exco Lim Hock Seng, secretary Lim Hooi Ying (Guan Eng’s younger sister, in green ‘Ubah’ T-shirt – pix above), bajungu boss Phee Boon Poh and Grandpa Dapster Lim Kit Siang.
PAS’s hudud bill taken at the flood
The Kelantan state assembly’s special sitting to move the hudud amendment bills has been postponed, The J-Star happily reported earlier this afternoon.
If/when Kit Siang meets the PAS top-ranking ulamas tomorrow, he can say “I told you so”.
It is not God’s will for hudud to be implemented in Kelantan. The DUN being immersed in flood water is a sign from the sky that PAS hudud does not meet with divine approval because it contains shortcomings.
One of the hudud offences is hirabah (highway robbery) which is punishable by death or crucifixion or cross amputation of limbs.
Hirabah affected overland transportation when camels were stolen on the desert highway and caravans robbed. In Kelantan today, travel is increasingly over water, riding in sampans and boats.
PAS may need to update its hudud draft.
