PAS has ‘selective memory’, ex-MP says after Howard Lee’s apology

PETALING JAYA: A former PAS MP said an apology tendered by DAP MP Howard Lee over the use of a Quranic verse in a political video was proof that the Islamist party suffers from “very selective memory”.

In the apology, Lee pointed out that PAS’s non-Muslim supporters’ wing and its coalition partner Gerakan had also previously quoted from the Muslim holy book.

Raja Kamarul Bahrin Shah said Lee’s comments showed that PAS “excelled at selective persecution” rather than religious correctness. He said PAS’s objections were all about gaining political mileage.

“PAS will conveniently forget that its top leaders not only allowed their non-Muslim supporters to cite Quranic verses, but also cheered them on,” the current Terengganu Amanah chief told FMT. Amanah is a PAS splinter party.
