Stop The ‘Infidel’ Narrative
At the same time, Anwar said he rejected the ‘destructive narrative’ of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s ‘infidel’ behaviour.
I do not agree with PAS leaders in offending infidels, and I do not agree with Tun Dr Mahathir in calling others infidels. Such conduct is not Islamic tradition and should not be defended.Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on paganizing others, saying it is not an Islamic tradition and should not be allowed.
The Port Dickson MP also questioned why the Religious Affairs Bureau and the Department of Religious Affairs did not come out to condemn such acts.
Dr Mahathir, who is Parti Pejuang Tanah Air (PEJUANG) chairman, had claimed that PAS is now an infidel party.
The Langkawi MP used the derogatory term on PAS for collaborating with UMNO and non-Muslim parties to gain positions.
