I think the Malaysiakini headline – see below – is quite unhinged.
It attributes Hadi Awang as saying that “PAS “no intention of merging with Parti Amanah Negara”. This blatant misrepresentation of Hadi is bizarre.
The actual quote, as contained in the Bernama source article as well as in other articles taking their content from the national news agency, has the PAS president saying, “PAS is still firm on its decision not to accept the new party and we are consistent in our stand”.
Apa yang Hadi cakap memang masuk akal.
(1) PAS pandang enteng Parti Pekerja Malaysia yang baru-baru ini disertai oleh kelompok New Hope/Amanah.
(2) PAS tegas dengan pendiriannya untuk tidak menerima parti baru tersebut.
(3) PAS cukup konsisten dengan ketetapannya selama ini.
Tidak timbul sama sekali soal PAS bercadang hendak “gabung” dengan parti serpihan yang diwakili para YB pengkhianat beserta pelanggar bai’ah.
Hadi is also reported to have said past experience had taught PAS to be more careful in forging close cooperation with other political parties. This is yet again another most reasonable statement.
What Hadi said is all logical.
So how in the world did his words to the effect that PAS remains firm it will not accept the new party somehow get twisted into the illogical Malaysiakini headline – “PAS no intention of merging with Amanah”?
The premise itself, i.e. that the big, established party ever entertained any thought about “merging” with a fledging party Harapan Baru/Amanah is quite preposterous. Yet Bernama – see above – and the opposition media can come up with such a bare-faced headline.
Macam-macam cara PAS dikenakan. These people (pro-opposition reporters) are hellbent on sabotaging the PAS ulama but at the same time upend reality as we know it. Can you see?
