The government has never rejected hudud as Allah's Law, but there are so many issues that need to be solved before the law can be fully implemented in the country, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said.
With the death of Karpal Singh, a by-election will soon be called for the Bukit Gelugor parliamentary seat vacated by him. Will PAS carry on with its plan to table a private motion in the Parliament in order to implement the hudud law in Kelantan at a time its ally DAP is mourning over a great loss?
PAS is prepared to table a private motion to implement hudud law in Kelantan through constitutional amendment in Dewan Rakyat in June. The party's Pakatan Rakyat allies DAP and PKR remain ambiguous in their stand over this issue. Apparently, with PAS being insistent in pressing ahead the hudud law, Pakatan's advances towards Putrajaya will be somewhat dampened.
Two years ago, to be exact on August 28, 2012, I wrote an article A Day in 2014 in my column. I remember I started with: "In September 2014, PAS president Hadi Awang will be tabling the hudud law bill in the Parliament."
