PAS running out of constructive ideas, says DAP Youth leader

Dr. Kelvin Yii

KUCHING (August 21): PAS’s latest criticism of the frequency of concerts held in Malaysia shows how bankrupt the party is of ideas, says the national socialist youth leader of the Democratic Action Party (DAP) , Dr. Kelvin Yii.

He said PAS has nothing else constructive to offer Malaysians, just to create animosity among people in a multicultural and plural society like Malaysia.

“When Malaysians are struggling with a rising cost of living and a sluggish economy, all that PAS seems to care about is ‘policing the morals’ of others, often trying to interfere with the rights of others Malaysians who are protected by the Federal Constitution.

“PAS should recognize and respect the fact that Malaysians are capable of thinking and evaluating any form of entertainment for themselves, and that the fate of the country lies in good governance and policies rather than the number of concerts that we have.

“In fact, I think what elicits ‘real anger’ is blatant corruption, poor governance, inequality, discrimination, oppressive laws and even threats of harm against others, including members of our system. judiciary, on which they are silent,” he said. in a report.

Dr Yii said all this divisive rhetoric was just a smokescreen for the PAS leader’s incompetence in government on the real issues affecting all Malaysians, as well as his deafening silence against his own partners in government involved in grand corruption and kleptocracy.

“That is why there should be no place for PAS in any position of power in our country where it can influence and shape national policies that affect us all, including our children.

“They should ‘keluar dari tempurung’ (get out of the coconut shell) and address the real issues that affect Malaysians, rather than trying to undermine the rights of others which are protected by the Federal Constitution”, said Dr. Yii, MP for Bandar Kuching. .

His statement was made in response to PAS youth leader Ahmad Fadhli Shaari, who took to social media on Friday to warn against the continued holding of concerts and call on Muslims to oppose such events. .

Ahmad Fadhli’s remarks are said to have been made ahead of American singer-songwriter Billie Eilish’s concert being held at Bukit Jalil Stadium in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday night.
