KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 5 — PAS president Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang urged the police today to investigate unspecified remarks involving his political rivals, after he was questioned over his accusation that DAP was anti-Islam.

Speaking to reporters after he gave his statement to investigators, Hadi claimed he gave full cooperation to the police and was prepared to be prosecuted over his remarks.

“This is my turn to ask that the police investigate those from the other side, including PH (Pakatan Harapan).

“I hope there is fairness,” he told reporters after spending two hours to have his statement recorded at the Sentul district police headquarters.

He did not specify which remarks and by which politicians should be investigated.

On November 28, Hadi accused DAP of spreading Islamophobia in another lengthy Facebook rant that featured the usual diatribe against the PH component member as a party allegedly bent on “destroying” Islam.

In August, he accused non-Muslims and non-Bumiputera of making up the bulk of what he called as “roots of corruption” — those who chase illicit gains — to the detriment of the country’s economy and politics.

This had led to numerous police reports made against Hadi.
