KUALA LUMPUR, April 26 — PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang today took swap at the opposition politicians who oppose the Emergency.
He said, those politicians who condemn the Emergency are worse than the “political extremists”, who detonate explosives, commit murders, and disregard human life just to achieve their political agenda or regain power.
“In Malaysia, there are now groups (of politicians) oppose the Emergency declaration as a result of the pandemic.
“It is as if they are not residing on this plague-stricken Earth.
“The reason (they oppose the emergency) is a mere political one, to regain power that has been lost,” the Marang MP said in a statement.
Hadi also labelled the “political extremists” as “hungry sharks” conceal themselves behind a rock” as they found it difficult to regain power by any other means.
“The reason is because they have gone too far in politics to the point of inundating the economy and security which are merely just a refuge for all the greediness in their politicking.
“Even though economic and security factors are used as excuses, they are merely a facade for their extreme political lust.
“They are still unable to discard their crazed and excessive political behaviour because they have lost power under the delusion of power struggles amongst one another in their group.
“Yet, it is not easy for a ferocious and large shark to conceal itself,” he said.
On January 11, 2021, Malaysian government declared a state of emergency, with the the consent of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah, to curb the spread of COVID-19.
The Emergency in the country will take place until August 1, or until the current wave of Covid-19 infections has subsided.
