KUALA LUMPUR, July 7 — International business daily Wall Street Journal (WSJ) needs to provide at least four trustworthy witnesses to back its graft allegations against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang said.
Citing the same position his party took in Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s sodomy case, Hadi said Islam dictates that these four witnesses are necessary to validate the newspaper’s report last week which claimed that some US$700 million (RM2.6 billion) from state investor 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) had been channelled to Najib’s private accounts.
“Our stand is the stand of Islam. If four witnesses are needed for Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s case, then it is the same with the allegations against Najib, there has to be witnesses...fair witnesses.
“We follow the fundamentals of Islam, what is good we support, what is not we oppose,” Hadi was quoted saying in Astro Awani today after performing tarawih prayers at a Ramadan event in Kota Baru.
steadyaku47 comment : There is no ambiguity within me when commenting on suckers like Hadi who, by their comments on religion, makes one question the relevance of any religion in the times that we live in....and that he is comfortable in doing so only makes for one to wonder where religion has a place in politics or legal jurisprudence as we "normal" human beings understand them to be. Of course they will be many who will ask who am I to impose these views of mine upon the many who take the pronouncements of suckers like Hadi as gospel truth.
I am not imposing my views on anyone.
I am merely stating my thoughts - and it is for you to sort it out in your own frame of mind, the right and wrong of what I say.
What I know is this....whether it is Anwar or 1MDB...whether it is FGV, Rosmah or Najib...whether it is the corruption within PDRM or the BN government.... whether it is what PAS has now become after TGNA.....these religious zealots are always able to pluck out one of their "God" dictums and explain what is that they want the masses to believe and make what they say to be "GOD's own words...or as in the case of Hadi..."ALLAH's!
Think what you want but I have enough grey power within my head to call a spade a spade and in this situation, I will call Hadi a sucker that makes Islam sucks by the things they say about Islam.
And even in the last conscious moments that this Hadi will have on this earth...nothing will change for him, for alas, he is a product of his own thinking and the life he has lived in politics.
But some of you and me, can surely think for our self! There is no place for "four trustworthy witness" in the legal world that we now live in. Hell there is no place for "one trustworthy" witness in the courts of today! You examine and cross examine a witness and the truth of what he or she says will be decided by those capable of making that decision...not on behalf of Allah or any religion...but on behalf of the truth!
I rest my case.
