Recently, PAS president Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang posted on Facebook that non-Muslims and non-Bumiputeras made up the majority of those who formed the “roots of corruption”.

“If we want to deal with corruption we must first tackle it from the grassroots. If not it will eventually become a disease. These groups who chase illicit gains are the ones who eventually control the economy,” he added.

“They then damage our politics as they are the roots for corruption and the majority of them are non-Muslims and non-Bumiputera.”

His comments have angered many, including Parti Rakyat Sarawak vice-president Datuk Liwan Lagang who said that the PAS president should be permanently blacklisted from entering Sarawak.



Liwan, who is also state deputy utility and telecommunication Minister and Sarawak’s deputy Minister said, “What has become of you as the leader of your party?”

“Do you want to be remembered as a racist and religious bigot instead of leaving behind an honourable legacy like the late PAS spiritual advisor, Tok Guru Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat, who was respected by all Malaysians regardless of race and religion as a wise person?” added Liwan.

“Instead, you have not led by example because I have not heard anything positive that comes out of your mouth ever since you insulted us back in 2009.”

He recalled that Hadi had blamed Dayaks for losing in the 2009 Batang Ai by-election when PAS was a component party in Pakatan Rakyat. He also said that he remembered Hadi describing the Sarawak indigenuous community as “ignorant cawat” (loincloth-wearing) voters who did not know how to vote.

Furthermore, he urged Prime Minister Datuk Ismail Sabri to censure Hadi and sack him as the special envoy to the Middle East.

“And I would also like to recommend to the Sarawak government that Hadi be barred for life from entering Sarawak as this Land of the Hornbill should not welcome such awful character to our shore.”

“Sarawak is so blessed because our leaders, led by our Premier Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg understands and respects all religions and races in the state. If Hadi is so blind as he has shown himself to be, he should learn from our premier,” he added.



“To say the majority of those who chase illicit gains in Malaysia are non-Muslims and non-Bumiputera is just a sweeping comment without providing proper data and statistics,” he explained.

“If Hadi is a capable leader, he should work quietly and let his works be seen as an example in all PAS-led states to prosper,” he said.
