Harapan in power: Don't be fooled a second time - Hadi

PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang has warned the younger generation of voters against "being fooled a second time" by allowing Pakatan Harapan to return to power.

He claimed, in just a few days of taking over Putrajaya after the 14th general election (GE14), Harapan revealed its "extreme attitude" towards Islam and its leaders, when both matters should have been defended as per Allah's commands.

"To the younger generation who did not witness events from the past, don't be easily swayed by media without borders that will bring regret on Earth and in the afterlife.

"It is enough for this major thing to serve as a lesson," said Hadi in a statement.

"Do not be fooled twice or stung from the same hole... it is forbidden to be together with enemies of the religion and the ummah, whether those seen or unseen," he said, citing a narration from Prophet Muhammad.

His latest warning came as the legitimacy of Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin's Perikatan Nasional administration continues to come under heavy scrutiny for its handling of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Hadi further reminded that lessons from the prophet represent timeless wisdom, including for believers to not easily forget past shortcomings until they could be easily fooled again and again.

Looking back, he repeated claims that Harapan's GE14 victory was because voters fell for their promises, including those deemed "impossible" to fulfill.

He also claimed Harapan failed to take responsibility for its failures, laying blame on the past BN administration, while scrambling for the prime minister's post.

PAS previously entered into a partnership with Harapan components PKR and DAP as part of Pakatan Rakyat (PR), forming several state governments since 2008.

GE14 saw PAS breaking ranks from PR and contesting elections with support from its Gagasan Sejahtera partners before eventually partnering with Umno through Muafakat Nasional.
