PAS opts out of Himpun gathering
PAS will not take part in the Himpun gathering at Shah Alam Stadium this Saturday.
The decision to opt out was made at the party’s political bureau meeting Tuesday night.
PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, in a press statement, said the rally organised by the non-governmental groups would not involve any political party.
“We respect the groups’ decision but we will not take part,” he said.
Earlier, PAS Youth Wing had declared their support behind the gathering, which was scheduled to be held from 2pm to 6pm on Saturday, to “protect, defend and champion the cause of Islam.”
