In recent days, the news media has been full of reports of Pas president Hadi Awang shooting off his mouth with his sweeping statements through his party mouthpiece, Harakah.
It is impossible to know what else he is spewing into the ears of Pas supporters through personal speeches and talks.
Hopefully, someone will stop Hadi from his attempts to cause unnecessary unease and confusion in the country.
Not only is he stirring prejudices but clearly, as pointed out by several quarters, he is dangerously ploughing through religious, racial and political sensitivities without care, concern, respect and responsibility.
Many also think his attacks are hurting those who hold the constitutional monarchy in high esteem.
Do we need to make police reports before Hadi is expected to act more responsibly in the interest of the nation and the different races and religions of the country?
Or do we have to wait until his poison arrows unleash great disturbance and turmoil in the country?

Or are we doomed to live with this entrenched and growing antagonism among the supporters and sympathisers of Pas?
Hopefully, those tasked with ensuring peace and harmony will do something soon to get Hadi to pull his brakes in the best interests of the nation and to enable the new government to proceed uninterrupted.
