Hadi’s ‘Sheraton Move’ admission: Betrayal of voters’ mandate – Patriot

The Pas president's act plunged the nation into misery at a time of mounting challenges


It is not just shocking but most despicable that political party leaders are proud to have acted in a manner that has robbed this nation of democratic rights, peace and harmony and its pursuit of progress.

Marang MP Hadi Awang, the Pas spiritual leader, has admitted that it was he who initiated and saw to the infamous Sheraton Move.

As reported in Free Malaysia Today (“I initiated Sheraton Move, nominated Muhyiddin as PM, says Hadi“, 22 October), it can be unbiasedly held that Hadi [has betrayed the people].

He has, by engineering the “Sheraton Move” and using Mahiaddin Yasin, robbed the people of their democratic rights, desecrated the sacrosanct Federal Constitution and pushed the monarchy system into an unsavoury corner.

Pakatan Harapan came into power to form the new government in 2018 after the people gave their mandate through the polls, legitimately.

Therefore, Patriot says this to Hadi: Your diabolic act is most un-Islamic, let alone an ugly betrayal….

That act of yours has plunged the nation into misery at a time when global health, economic and geopolitical challenges have been mounting.

Your justification that you helped pull the rug because of “attempts by PH to ratify the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination” is most despicable.

What is so un-Islamic about eradicating all forms of racial discrimination may we ask you – one who projects himself as the anointed, principal vanguard of Islam?

Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world and known for not discriminating against humanity. Islam preaches that racial discrimination goes against the very teachings of the Holy Prophet, peace be upon him.

Not only have you desecrated the sanctity of Islam but you have also plotted and sold a diabolic, poisoned plot that robbed this nation of its democratic rights….

Patriot, whose members have pawned limbs and lives to defend Malaysia against any enemy threat, deems your act [a betrayal].

We call upon all patriotic citizens, institutions, religious congregations, civil society leaders and principled media to condemn your deceitful, diabolic role in causing the Sheraton Move.
