“Karpal: Deregister PAS and all race and religion-based parties, associations”, this is the title of an article from The Star that caught my attention.
GEORGE TOWN: Bukit Gelugor MP Karpal Singh has called for all race-based parties, including PAS, to be deregistered.
He said the time had come for all such political parties, as well as professional bodies formed according to racial and religious lines, to be deregistered.
“This applies to all political parties, including PAS, unfortunately,” said Karpal in a press conference Tuesday.

As the chairman of DAP, I don’t think Karpal should made that statement as PAS is an ally of DAP in Pakatan Rakyat.
It shows that Karpal does not respect PAS even after PAS has been helping DAP until some of PAS’s members went against PAS and vote for UMNO.
Anyway, will PAS agree with Karpal’s idea and allow people from other religion to join the party?
Can PAS members and PAS’s Dewan Ulama accept Karpal’s idea?
Is this part of DAP’s plan to humiliate PAS?
If such statement was made by an UMNO’s leader, PAS and Pakatan Rakyat will surely be very, very angry and their leaders will make all kinds of statements against it.
But now, will PAS dare to say anything since it was DAP’s Karpal Singh who made the statement?
I’m waiting for the response from Haji Hadi, Harun Taib, Harun Din, Nik Aziz, Mohamad Sabu, Mahfuz Omar, Khalid Samad, Mujahid Yusof Rawa and others on this issue.
