Kuala Selangor MP Dzulkefly Ahmad said this needs to be done so that election campaigns can be concentrated on the 'real' issues.PETALING JAYA: The hudud issue should not be given preference in the general election as there are more pressing matters.
According to Kuala Selangor MP Dzulkefly Ahmad, this ought to be done to ensure that real political issues such as policies, leadership, national debt, cost of living and corruption would not be overshadowed by debates on hudud.
Dzulkefly Ahmad, who is also the PAS Research Centre director, said : “Hudud is being played up by Umno so that DAP-PAS relations is strained.
“The Chinese voters will be instilled with fear. On that trajectory, the real election issues will be lost.”
The call to stop using hudud as a general election issue came following Bachok MP, Nasharuddin Mat Isa’s accusation that national DAP chairman Karpal Singh is an enemy of Islam, which prompted Karpal to file a suit against Nasharuddin.
