BATU PAHAT: Non-Muslims in Malaysia will be at a “point of no return” if Pakatan Rakyat takes over the government and amends the Federal Constitution.

PAS had always wanted to achieve its agenda of establishing an Islamic state and implementing hudud, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek..

“We cannot listen to DAP which had claimed that even with a two-thirds majority, one cannot declare the country an Islamic state and that the basic structure cannot be changed,” he said.

Since the last general election, Dr Chua said two PAS-led state governments had forced non-Muslims to accept their ways such as imposing a ban on alcohol and lottery sale.

“We are not encouraging people to drink or gamble, but these are rights that have been denied.

“These are small things to some people but the fact is that they would infringe on your rights, tell you a lot of things about them. They can challenge something protected under the Federal Constitution,” he said after opening a Chinese cultural dance event organised by the Batu Pahat MCA at SJK (C) Cheng Siu on Tuesday.

The Star reported as once the Federal Constitution was amended, Dr Chua warned that it would be tough for the non-Muslims, although DAP claimed that the government could be changed every five years.

“It is like a point of no return,” he said.

Dr Chua also said many Malay-sians took things for granted, assuming that racial harmony, political stability and economic growth would come naturally.
