PAS Youth’s Valentine’s Day crackdown draws flak

PETALING JAYA: PAS Youth’s proposed Valentine’s Day crackdown has drawn flak from the Youth wings of MCA, Gerakan and DAP.

MCA Youth chief Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong said moral policing on Valentine’s Day indicated that the Pakatan Rakyat state governments were starting to implement Islamic policies.

“Although PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang had said during the Tenang by-election that the Islamic state is an old issue, we know that it was just a tactic to cheat voters,” he said in response to PAS Youth chief Nasrudin Hasan Tantawi’s statement that local authorities in Kedah, Kelantan and Selangor would conduct checks to curb immoral activities on Valentine’s Day.

Dr Wee urged these state governments to make a stand on Nasrudin’s claim that there would be a Valentine’s Day crackdown in Pakatan Rakyat states.

“It is very disappointing and sad to see that PAS has failed to walk the talk,” he said.

Kedah Gerakan Youth chief Tan Keng Liang called on PAS Youth to mind its own business.

“I urge Pakatan Rakyat to re-examine any plans to undermine Valentine’s Day in Pakatan Rakyat states.

“Don’t prejudge the morality of those celebrating Valentine’s Day,” he added.

Dapsy chief Anthony Loke Siew Fook said it did not agree with PAS Youth’s plan to play moral police and check on couples on Valentine’s Day.

“The campaign was never discussed with PKR Youth or Dapsy,” he said.

He also added that PAS Youth had no right to speak on behalf of the Pakatan Rakyat state governments.

“The power of enforcement lies with the state governments,” he said.

In an immediate response, Nasrudin said the local and religious authorities would be taking action based on existing rules and regulations.

“In Selangor, for example, enforcement activities are already in force to check immoral activities among Muslims.

“I am sure none of the state governments condone immoral activities,” he said.

The Valentine’s Day issue that was first highlighted in The Star has attracted global attention with Time magazine’s online edition and foreign wire agencies picking it up.

In August last year, Nasrudin said that Valentine’s Day and New Year celebrations were among the major causes of baby dumping in Malaysia as both occasions had encouraged liberal socialising and free sex.

The two foetuses can't be from the NY and Valentine's days' liberal socialising and free sex. right? Such hypocritical grand standing is enough to induce continued vomiting.


Two foetuses found in separate locations

KUALA LUMPUR: Two foetuses were found dumped in separate locations three hours apart in Sentul and Dang Wangi.

The first foetus, believed to be a female, was found at the Metro Prima Kepong sewage treatment plant.

Sentul OCPD Asst Comm Zakaria Pagan said initial investigations revealed that the foetus is less than five months old.
