IPOH: Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir has criticised PAS for flip flopping on the proposed muzakarah (discussions) between PAS and Umno.

Zambry, who was asked to comment on PAS spiritual adviser Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat’s action in putting a stop to the muzakarah, said the Opposition did not have a clear stand on the matter.

“The subject of having a muzakarah between PAS and BN has been on and off several times. Somehow, the blame always falls on BN,” he said after leading a 29km bicycle convoy around Ipoh yesterday.

It was reported last week that Nik Aziz had declared that the muzarakah between both parties should proceed.

However, in an about-turn, he was quoted two days later by an English daily stating the issue should instead be stopped.

The idea for a muzakarah was first broached by PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, who said on May 13 that the party was open to discussions with any Muslim NGO and Umno.

He had said the muzakarah was to address allegations that PAS had deviated from its original struggle. Nik Aziz then set several conditions for the dialogue, one of which was the theme

“Why Umno rejects Islam”. Hadi later claimed PAS was only keen to have the muzakarah with Muslim NGOs, and not Umno as reported
