Karpal will be president if PAS wins, Kuala Besut told

Deputy Agriculture Minister Tajuddin Abdul Rahman warned Kuala Besut voters that Karpal Singh could be Malaysia’s first president if they allow DAP to control Putrajaya through PAS.
“The sultan is the head of our religion. The agong is a Muslim. If we become a republic, (DAP chairperson) Karpal Singh then becomes the president. He would be your chief.

NONE“Can this be? Can Karpal Singh be the head of Islam? No,” he said in his opening speech at a programme by the Veterinary Services Department in Kampung Baharu, Kuala Besut, this morning.

He reasoned that PAS wants to be in Putrajaya but has only 20 MPs, hence it has joined Pakatan Rakyat and in doing so has opened its doors to DAP for negotiation.
“Do you think DAP would give them (benefits) for free? They (DAP) would work with PAS, but the condition is that they would demand this and demand that.
“Perhaps they will ask to be the deputy prime minister.
“Who would that be? (DAP parliamentary leader) Lim Kit Siang, or his son Lim Guan Eng,” he said according to sources.
NONEHe also claimed Karpal has said that if PAS is to remain in Pakatan Rakyat, it must never mention the issue of ‘Islamic struggle’ and must ‘tread over his dead body’ first if it were to establish an Islamic state.
Tajuddin, an Umno supreme council member, urged the electorate therefore to not vote for PAS in order to keep DAP out of power.
“If PAS rules Terengganu, it would be someone else in power and that is DAP, which will influence Terengganu leaders just as DAP influences PAS in Kelantan and PAS in Selangor.
“Even in Kedah in the past, what PAS did was subject to pressure, comments and requests,” he said, adding that this would happen in Terengganu as well despite DAP’s absence there. ‘Their people’ would reign
Speaking to roughly 100 Malays, Tajuddin (below) claimed that opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim too is not fond of the royalty, and alleged DAP would amend Article 153 of the federal constitution that deals with the special position of bumiputeras.
NONE
He cited the example of Singapore, that although once had Malay-Muslim presidents, but not for long.
Tajuddin then dredged up a laundry list of DAP’s alleged evils, such as how DAP does not like Malays in the civil service and would oust half of them if it comes into power, then replace them with “their people”.
Meanwhile in the DAP-led Penang, he said the Malays there are being treated unfairly over increasing property prices blamed on Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.
“Guan Eng has chased away Malays from Penang Island. How? He builds expensive houses worth RM700,000, RM1,000,000, RM2,000,000.
“Malays can’t afford this and are forced to buy property outside of the island,” he said, while adding that there are only rich Malays left there.
Other examples included claims that former Perak Menteri Besar Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin is a DAP puppet, and Guan Eng’s call for the word ‘Allah’ to be allowed in Bahasa Malaysia bibles.
‘Oppressed minorities a lie’
The deputy minister further claimed that although he was trumpeting Malay power, BN looks after the interests of all races and is a fair government.
NONE“The BN government led by Umno, who are Malays, is a government that is fair to all races.
“Where are the neglected Chinese? The oppressed Indians? All these oppression stories are just to instigate the people to hate the government,” he said.
He stressed that the BN-led government does not stop Chinese vernacular schools, non-Islamic religions, and non-Malay businesses.
The first by-election since the May 5 general election that saw Umno win Terengganu by a wafer-thin majority is taking place in a 99 percent Malay seat of 17,683 voters.
The campaign period – that takes place during the holy month of Ramadan – pits PAS’ Azlan Yusof against BN’s Tengku Zaihan Che Ku Abdul Rahman in a race to win votes by the July 24 polling date.

    This is a good example of the kind of fear that Umno/Bn is using to preventing Umno from being out of Putrajaya. Especially now that they are a minority government they still have not learnt what is the real reason behind the whole problem. First they tried to blame on the Chinese Tsunami when the real reason is the Malays are not voting for them. If they care to add up the number of people, assuming they are all Malays, for voted for them are a lot smaller than the total of Umno members, not to mention the total number of Malays in the country. This is a Malay Tsunami !
    As I have mentioned numerous times before the total Chinese in Malaysia is only a minority and assuming that all of them have voted for DAP, the Chinese will not be the cause of their defeat in the election. The Chinese is not their worry to begin with, they should know that and that is why they have marginalized them.
    It is the real Malays they have to worry about, the real Malays have woken up that these half breeds or Umno made Malays are robbing them blind in their names. This whole scenario cannot and will not be tolerated anymore. For those people like Najib, should therefore stop using the Chinese as the punching bags. Once more the Chinese as the minority in this country, should never be feared as enemy of Umno !
