The Opposition leader’s remarks were akin to Pakatan supporting hudud and the proposed amendments to the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965 as presented by PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.
During an interview with Al Jazeera’s UpFront programme last Friday, Dr Wan Azizah said the implementation of hudud law in the country “is still a possibility”, and would not rule it out if the Opposition captured Putrajaya at the next general election.
Chai added that DAP’s constant emphasis and promises that Pakatan would not implement hudud law were “just lies and nonsense”.
He said it was similar to DAP’s past promises that PAS would not implement hudud law nor a theocratic state, but set up a welfare state instead.
