DAP will not support the proposed PAS bill to make apostasy a capital offence among Muslims


Media Statement
by Lim Kit Siang 
 

(Petaling Jaya, Friday): DAP will not support the proposed PAS private memberís bill in the Dewan Rakyat to make apostasy a capital offence among Muslims.

This is not the first time that the PAS deputy president Haji Abdul Hadi Awang has given notice to move such a private memberís bill. All his previous attempts to move such a private memberís bill in the last few parliamentary meetings had failed as no time was allocated, and I expect the same thing to happen in the coming parliamentary meeting.
