On the 9th September 2012, PAS president Dato’ Seri Haji Abdul Hadi Awang told the press that Yang Berhormat Nasharudin Mat Isa remains as a Majlis Syura council member after the much anticipated PAS Syura Council Meeting. He also stated that the issue of Nasharudin Mat Isa was not discussed in the meeting. -Status quo for Nasharudin- The New Straits Times-
Was the issue really not discussed when Dato’ Seri Haji Hadi Awang stated last month that the issue will be discussed during the meeting. And Yang Amat Berhormat Tuan Guru Dato’ Bentara Setia Haji Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, who chaired the meeting, left the meeting which started at 9 pm, at 9:20pm. Was it because the issue was discussed in the meeting and it was decided that Nasharudin Mat Isa will not be sacked and Nik Aziz was not happy with the decision because he does not like Nasharudin Mat Isa?
And if the matter was discussed, was it decided that Nasharudin will not be sacked because PAS is afraid that Nasharudin’s followers will follow Nasharudin and join UMNO?
Yang Berhormat Dato’ Dr. Hasan Mohamed Ali, ex-member of PAS and Member of the Selangor State Assembly for Gombak Setia said in an interview aired in TV3 last night that it was impossible that the issue (on Nasharudin) was not discussed in the meeting. And since PAS decided to not sack Nasharudin, that means that they approve Nasharudin’s actions.
