KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 22 — The PAS president is backed by the devil himself, former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir said today, in retaliation against Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang’s thinly-veiled comment about Malay-majority Umno.
“He himself is working with the devil, that’s the devil I know,” Dr Mahathir (picture) said in a press conference here, referring to Abdul Hadi.
This remark came after the Marang MP spoke at the Islamist party’s annual conference, or muktamar, last weekend, where he criticised a “party of devils”.
“The devil party which is controlled by the devil — the devil that people know — is incapable of upholding justice for all,” Abdul Hadi said in his opening speech last Friday.
