The PAS central working committee has sacked Datuk Hasan Ali as a party member with effect from today, party organ Harakahdaily reports.
President Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang said in a statement today that after weighing up all views from its central working committee in today’s monthly meeting, it decided to revoke the Selangor executive councillor’s membership.
“The decision was made based on Datuk Hasan Ali’s actions which have wronged and damaged the party’s interest as provided for in the PAS constitution,” the Marang MP said.
Last month, Hasan (picture) criticised PAS in Umno-controlled media such as Utusan Malaysia, Berita Harian and TV3 for purportedly abandoning its Islamist credentials for the sake of political gain.
Hasan accused PAS, which removed him as Selangor chief after its general assembly in June 2010, of straying from its original struggle for an Islamic state by pushing for a welfare state.
The Gombak Setia assemblyman again earned the ire of his colleagues this week when he said tomorrow’s rally in support of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the opposition leader learns the verdict of his two-year-long sodomy trial was a waste of time.
Abdul Hadi had already backed the rally and other party leaders said Hasan had insulted the party president by going against his decision.
It is not known whether the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) Selangor government will drop him from the state executive council where he is in charge of religious affairs.
PAS women’s wing chief Siti Zailah Mohd Yusoff told The Malaysian Insider that the decision was reached unanimously.
“The decision was made after careful study, discussion and advice given to Hasan but he still ignored orders and still went against the party’s policies,” she said.
Hasan can still appeal to the party’s Syura Council, its powerful decision-making body made up of religious scholars.
PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat also attended today’s monthly meeting.
a New Year's gift for the Rakyat, he should have been sacked long ago last year for his damaging statement against PAS and insults to the Rakyat. Most Rakyat would welcome this move, remove this Virus from PAS.
This Hasan Ali, who is Umno-friendly is totally unfit to be a PAS member at all. If PAS were to nominate him to contest in GE13, the seat is sure a Umno victory. Furthermore, Hasan Ali will cause the defeat of Selangor state govt to Umno as Pakatan Rakyat voters will not vote for Pakatan Rakyat candidates if PAS is so willing to nominate him to contest as he is already an unwanted assemblyman in Pakatan Rakyat by all the Pakatan Rakyat voters.
Hasan Ali has achieved his objective of trying to damage the party. Of course just watch his sendiwara of joining UMNO.
Cannot be the MB of Selangor, so be the well pay trumpet of BN (MB)....
It is unknown such a religious man can have such personal behaviours and acts under the religious teaching ??
Is he a true religious man with truth religious knowledge ?? Or, merely a Political Religious Opportunist ( PRO) ??
