Hudud Pas is Unconstitutional
We never challenge the religion nor its law. It is not a question of why the non-Muslims are so worried about Hudud as it is not applicable to them. By the way, we are more concern of Hudud by Pas and its validity.
18.3.2015 Kota Bahru: Gerakan Legal Team led by Gerakan Deputy Youth Chief Andy Yong Kim Seng has filed a court case against the amendments to the Syariah Criminal Code (II) Enactment that facilitates Hudud implementation in Kelantan at the Kota Bahru High Court today. Other members of the legal team who were present at the courthouse including Jayanthi Devi Balaguru, Chai Ko Ting and Ong Siang Liang as well as around 30 Gerakan members who were there to support the cause.
It is understood that PAS will table the amendments Hudud Bill at the Kelantan State Legislative Assembly today. Andy Yong asserted that Gerakan steadfastly maintains that the Bill is unconstitutional and impractical as it is against the basic foundations of the nationhood as enshrined in the Federal Constitution. The party has decided to challenge its constitutionality following PAS’s insistence to table the Bill despite repeated warnings.
“Gerakan is firmly against the implementation of Hudud in Kelantan or any other parts in Malaysia and we seek legal redress to declare the Bill is unconstitutional and therefore void,” said Andy Yong.
“We in Gerakan are committed to safeguard the Federal Constitution as well as protecting the rights and interests of the people through our legal challenge against Hudud, we appeal support from all parties as it is a Malaysians’ response to this Hudud crisis,” said Andy Yong.
