SIBU: DAP Sarawak is disappointed that PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang was allowed to enter the state which enabled him to deliver a hate speech.

Its deputy president David Wong said the Chief Minister Abang Johari Tun Openg had “not only welcomed Hadi but also presented a memento to him”.

“The chief minister had gone against the principle of banning racial and religious bigots from entering the state which was made good by the previous chief minister, the late Pehin Sri Adenan Satem,” added Wong during a press conference here yesterday.

He later quoted a news report by The Star dated February 22, 2014 with the saying by the late Adenan, “Sarawak will stick to its stand of keeping out racial and religious extremists by using its immigration authority to prevent their entry or deport them”.

Wong reiterated that Hadi in his speech in Bintulu on Malaysia Day this year had alarmed the people by stating that DAP wanted the Chinese to control the state.

“This is a racial statement and it was made on Malaysia Day where people of all races were supposed to come together to celebrate. He (Hadi) was trying to create a hate speech to tell lies to the people and wanted the other races to hate the Chinese.”

Wong stressed that DAP was not a racist party as what Hadi portrayed it to be.

“DAP is a multi-racial party. We have members who are Malays, Chinese, Indians, Dayaks and more. I am disappointed by Abang Johari’s action as he had contradicted what Adenan had preached,” he added.
