Chua: DAP not brave enough to make a stand on hudud
PETALING JAYA: Despite being repeatedly challenged, DAP has yet to publicly announce that it will leave Pakatan Rakyat if PAS were to implement hudud, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.
“I think something is missing from the males in DAP,” he said.
At the same time, Dr Chua stressed that the rights of non-Muslims would be affected if the Islamic criminal law were to be implemented in accordance with PAS' wishes.
“If a Muslim man rapes a non-Muslim girl, he has the right to take the case to the Syariah court.
“When that happens, the poor girl will have to produce four witnesses,” he said at a gathering with social media users here yesterday.
As for MCA, Dr Chua said he was confident that the party would not need to take such drastic action as leaving Barisan Nasional over the implementation of hudud.
“The Prime Minister has pledged that Umno will not be implementing hudud law,” he said.
“And I've always said that if Barisan were to do so, MCA will be the first to leave.”
