It’s a pandemic now. WHO raises alert to maximum level and declared the influenza A (H1N1) a pandemic.
Likewise, the alarm has also been raised by members of the fragile and flimsy Pakatan-Rakyat when another member, PAS, showed their adamant to precede with the ongoing unity talks to form a unity government with Umno.
“Like the H!N! influenza, the talks are also a pandemic in Pakatan-Rakyat. We are 101% against the talks as it will defeat our endeavour to topple Barisan in the next General Election,” a senior DAP leader in Penang said.
DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang is speechless and flabbergasted over the talks but has made his stance clear that he is against the talks.
However, it is a different scenario in PAS when the party’s spiritual leader Nik Aziz Nik Mat has labelled those who want the unity talks as Umno puppets.
He said that he will not shut up – defying a call by PAS leaders who want members to keep quiet about the talks with Umno.
I wonder what brand of Islam is the so-called Tok Guru is advocating and preaching.
Doesn’t he understand that unity is the basic pillar of strength in Islam that brings the ummah together that has turned them into a force to be reckoned with.
The importance and need to be united among Muslims is mentioned repeatedly not only in the Al-Quran but is the same magnitude is also reminded in the Hadith.
So, I don’t quiet understand why Nik Aziz isso much against the unity talks and at the same time preaching for PAS members to be united under the Islamic party umbrella.
Maybe he thinks and perceives that Umno members, who are Muslims, are less pious than PAS members and it is better to kowtow and work with his non-Muslim and less pious friends in PR.
Like Lim Kit Siang, other DAP leaders, especially Karpal Singh, are also astounded by the unity talks.
As I have mentioned in my earlier postings, the coalition made up between PAS, DAP and PKR is indeed a marriage of convenience aimed at toppling Barisan and not because of other reasons. And the marriage is on the rock.
And soon the pandemic will turn into pandemonium in Pakatan-Pakatan Rakyat. It is a matter of time now. Let’s watch and see.
