Mahathir biggest sin, according to Hashim Jasin

PAS spiritual leader Hashim Jasin viewed former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s biggest sin was his action in cutting off aid for religious schools in Malaysia.

“To me Dr Mahathir’s biggest sin is cutting off aid to religious schools.

“What is that about? Why does he hate the religious schools to that extent?” said Hashim in an exclusive interview with Malay daily, Utusan Malaysia.

Hashim also panned Mahathir’s apology since the PPBM chairman did not admit his wrongdoings of the past.

“Mahathir is willing to do anything and to date he has not changed even though he apologised.

“I would say the apology is not enough. He should admit acting in such ways. Apologise and promise that it won’t be repeated. Only then there is the element of repent”.

Mahathir issued a general apology while delivering his keynote address at the PPBM annual general meeting which was held on Dec 30 which he said was a general apology for his past misdeeds.

In a related development Mahathir said that he would revamp the religious education syllabus if he heads the government under Pakatan Harapan.

“I would hold the education minister’s ears and ensure that the religious education syllabus is overhauled to include other fields of study,” said the opposition figure head at a forum entitled Bicara Wawasan 2020 held in Cyberjaya on Saturday.

“The students at religious schools memorise the Quran in Arabic but do not know the meaning. I too read the Quran both in English and Bahasa many times.

“They only know how to chop hands off,” said Mahathir in reference to PAS insistence on implementing hudud – the Islam penal code that allows severing limbs as punishment for robbery.-15/1/2018
