Temple, Thaipusam issues made me quit – PAS non-Muslim leader

PETALING JAYA: Kedah’s decision to demolish temples and not allow a state holiday for Thaipusam triggered the resignation of PAS Supporters Assembly (DHPP) secretary S Barathidasan, who left the party last week.

He said all his pleas on these issues to the PAS leadership fell on deaf ears, while Kedah menteri besar Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor ignored the sentiments of the Hindu community.

“This showed that we were merely being used as a front to show that PAS cares for the non-Muslims,” he told FMT.

Barathidasan, who is an IT engineer, claimed the DHPP wing was given lots of assurances before PAS became part of the Perikatan Nasional (PN) government a year ago but things started changing after that.

“I am in the WhatsApp group which includes leaders like minister Takiyuddin Hassan. I had pleaded with them to stop Sanusi from bulldozing his way in Kedah as it was hurting the community.
