PAS: Umno's racial politics endangers nation

According to President of PAS Dato’ Seri Tuan Guru Haji Abdul Hadi Awang, Umno must not scapegoat Chinese, Indians and other non-Malays for its own failure to uplift the Malays economically. PAS has been consistent in opposing Umno's racial politics since mid-1980s.

As a matter of fact, the largest statue of Reclining Buddha is Southeast Asia is located and preserved in the PAS-rule Kelantan. Chinese-language primary and secondary schools are treated fairly by the PAS-led state government in terms of grants, including land grants. Its Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Aziz is a man who leads a simple lifestyle unimaginable to Umno leaders and whose personal integrity is of high standard and order.

Hi James,
I would add that on the road from Kota Bahru to Tumpat you can see a massive 30 meter high statue of a sitting Buddha, which was inaugurated in 2001, with Nik Aziz attending. In most BN controlled states, this project would not have even got Local Council approval in the first place - violates the Council planning rules or something like that.
On the other hand....Just when you thought these "Bulan" types may be more tolerant than Umno..the Kota Bahru council suddenly comes up with this weird ruling on women's dressing. I would have thought its a non-issue - most women in Kelantan, Muslim or non-Muslim dress up conservatively by KL standards.
