Voice of ‘PAS leader’ in audio clip must be verified first, says Takiyuddin

KOTA BHARU: The authenticity of an audio recording said to sound like that of a PAS leader questioning party president Abdul Hadi Awang’s leadership must first be proven before any further action can be taken.

PAS secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan said the party was also open to any police investigation if any reports are lodged on the matter.

“As a man of law, I will not comment based on assumptions as these need to be proven first.

“If there is a police report, let the police investigate. We have the law and we do not act on speculation,” Bernama reported the Kota Bharu MP as saying.

Takiyuddin, who is also energy and natural resources minister, was asked to comment on the audio recording that has gone viral on social media.

Criticism against Hadi is rare in the party.

The voice in the audio clip that has gone viral is allegedly that of a PAS central committee member questioning Abdul Hadi Awang’s alleged affinity for Perikatan Nasional.

The nearly two-minute clip had suggested disgruntlement within the PAS top leadership against Hadi’s alleged affinity for Perikatan Nasional.

The voice recording, allegedly sounding like that of a PAS central committee member referred to only as “Mr T”, was posted on Facebook.

“Tok Guru (Hadi) is holding on to the view of a survey that showed PN is on the rise and BN is falling. But he (Hadi) said we need to accept Umno as well because it has grassroots support.

“Tok Guru always repeats this in his speech, but he does not show it in practice,” it said.
