Meeting on church disruption planned
PAS top leaders will meet with representatives of the Damansara Utama Methodist Church (DUMC) this coming Tuesday, according to party secretary-general Datuk Mustafa Ali.
However, he said, the party had not gotten the date for its requested meeting with officials from the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (JAIS).
The Malaysia religious police, JAIS, recently invaded a dinner gathering at the Damansara Church, causing great disruption and ill will.
"The church has agreed to our request to meet on Aug 16. The meeting will be held at 4pm. But we don't know when we can meet with JAIS," he said when contacted.
Mustafa said the nine-member delegation from PAS would be led by party deputy president Mohamad Sabu as president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang would still be overseas.
The PAS delegation will also include Mustafa, party vice-president Salahudin Ayub, information chief Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, central committee members Idris Ahmad, Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud, Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad and Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa and Selangor PAS commissioner Dr Abdul Rani Osman.
The PAS central committee had last week decided to meet with Jais and DUMC to get the real picture from both sides before making any stand on the issue of Jais investigating DUMC recently.
