Dont Haggle With PAS 
(The Star) - DAP and PKR should not “haggle” with PAS over the Islamist party’s decision on the issue of the word “Allah” or any matter concerning Islam, says PAS ulama chief Datuk Harun Taib.
“We are sticking by the (PAS) Syura Council’s decision that the word Allah should not be used by other religious faiths,” he said.
The party’s information chief Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man said the party’s decision on the matter was final.
He added that PAS would not entertain Pakatan Rakyat’s recent decision that indirectly allows the word “Allah” to be used in Bibles in the Malay language.
“We will abide by the Syura Council decision. We will not change our stand on matters concerning the religion,” he said, adding that PAS is not a flip-flop party that changes its stand for the sake of political expediency.
They said this in response to reports that DAP chairman Karpal Singhhad allegedly asked PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang to ensure that the Syura Council abided by the Pakatan Rakyat leadership council’s recent decision to allow non-Muslims to use the word “Allah”.
The Syura Council is the highest decision-making body in PAS that decides on the party’s policies and direction.
On Jan 14, the council decided that the word “Allah” cannot be used to describe God in any non-Muslim publications.
However, Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said the Pakatan’s stand remained the same despite the council’s decision.
Abdul Hadi had said earlier this year that Islam did not forbid people from other faiths from using the word “Allah” – provided it was not misused.
