PAS non-Muslim wing leader quits, cites inability to raise Indian issues


PETALING JAYA: A senior member of PAS’ non-Muslim wing has quit all posts, citing his inability to raise issues related to non-Muslims, particularly the Indian community, with the Islamist party’s leadership.

In a statement, PAS Supporters Assembly (DHPP) secretary S Barathidasan said he actually resigned from all posts, including as the Federal Territories DHPP chief, effective Dec 31 last year.

However, he said the pandemic led to many DHPP meetings being postponed and that it was only after the meeting this morning that his resignation was accepted.

Barathidasan said there were “internal issues” in the DHPP which could not be resolved to the point that he could not bring out the voices of the non-Muslims, especially the Indian community.

“So it is pointless if I cannot carry out my duties and responsibilities to the community. This forced me to resign from all my posts with immediate effect.”

He said he will decide on his political future soon as his struggle for the people and nation was not over.
