While campaigning for the 15the General Election (GE15), PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang took it online to warn Malaysians of an iblis (devil) within the Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition.
In a 56-second video he posted on his official Facebook page, Hadi went on to criticise his former political allies and said that PH had made multiple attempts to insult Islam and the country’s constitutional monarchy system, and collude with the communists to lead the revolution during its 22-month rule from May 2018 to February 2020.
He also pointed out the controversial move by the PH government, including the ratification of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD) and the Rome Statute.
“It happened during PH rule. There’s a devil there. This is what happened,” he said.
However, Hadi did not mention the identity of the devil, whether it was a person or a political party.
Meanwhile, the Islamist party has been stepping up its game in demonising of PH and its component parties amid the 15th general election.
On 16 October, Hadi accused PH of harbouring communists, anti-monarchists, supporters of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, and those involved in bribery in a sermon.
However, he did not provide any evidence behind his accusation.
Hadi started Sheraton move
Meanwhile, the PAS president also admitted that he started the Sheraton move in 2020 to bring the Pakatan Harapan government down. He also said that he proposed that Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin be the new prime minister to lead the country at that time.
According to Harakah daily, the Islamist party’s mouthpiece, Hadi said he started the move after some parties in PH wants to remove the special position of Islam in the country, the privileges of the Malays and bumiputras, among others.
Following these events, he began to negotiate with Muhyiddin to topple the Pakatan government. After Muhyiddin agreed, they then held discussions with UMNO.
“The results of this then led to the move where Muhyiddin announced he was leaving Pakatan.”
“Umno also agreed to this at that time, and soon, the Perikatan Nasional government was formed to replace the Pakatan administration,” he said.
He also denied that the Perikatan government was a ‘back door government’ as Muhyiddin was appointed by the King as the prime minister.
