Want to join Parti Islam Malaysia – Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS)?

During the recently concluded PAS assembly held in Shah Alam, it was proposed that PAS would admit non-Muslims to become members of the party.

Very interesting indeed.

  • Can a non-Muslim member of the party make a decision to change the policy set by the party?

  • Will the party allow the non-Muslim member to hold important position like the President, Deputy President, Vice President or even the Secretary General, oh never mind all that, can the non-Muslim member be elected as a member of the supreme council.

  • After 55 years of having their assembly, Dr. Lo Lo Ghazali seems to be the only female member who has managed to win a seat in their highest decision making body. So it looks like, it may take another 50 years or so to get a non-Muslim to hold an elected position within the party – that means in 2059.
  • I not only find this decision as a desperate attempt to gain some publicity from the non-Muslims, but, it also shows that PAS does not trust Parti KeAdilan Rakyat – Malaysian Justice Party (PKR) and Democratic Action Party (DAP).

  • The so called ‘Pakatan Rakyat’ has already political party that has an avenue where non-Muslims can be part of the system; instead, they decide to have a new opening for themselves
