MCA: Guan Eng should seek PAS leaders over hudud
Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

KUALA LUMPUR - Rather than wait for PAS to come to his doorstep, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng should go to Kelantan and tell the state government to forget its intention to enforce hudud.

"If DAP is sincere in stopping the implementation of hudud in Ke­­lantan, they should take the issue directly to PAS," said MCA deputy national organising secretary Datuk Chai Kim Sen.

"Instead of waiting vainly in his office for PAS president Datuk Seri Hadi Awang to make an appearance, Lim should go to Kelantan and persuade the state government to give up its dream to implement hudud," he said in a statement here yesterday.

"Until today, DAP has not objected to PAS' hudud plans. It is clear Lim prefers to sit and twiddle his thumbs in his Penang office," said Chai, who claimed the basic rights of the small Chinese community in Kelantan will be crushed if PAS goes ahead to enforce hudud.

He stressed that MCA was against any policy that threatens the rights of the Chinese.

Kelantan Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Yakob had reportedly said the state government would be tabling two private Bills in the Dewan Rakyat to pave the way for hudud.
