Nik Aziz Agrees To Meet Muslim Leaders

KOTA BAHARU, June 16 (Bernama) -- PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat has agreed to meet other Muslim leaders to discuss problems affecting Muslims and the Malays.

"We (PAS) had asked for such a meeting a long time ago but Umno was not interested. Talk of such a meeting surfaced after the opposition won five states in the (March 8) general election," he told reporters after laying the foundation stone for the Maahad Muhammadi religious school hostel and launching of the Tabung Haji Club here Monday.

Perlis Mufti Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin recently proposed that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Nik Aziz meet to discuss problems facing Muslims in the country.

Dr Mohd Asri said the meeting was necessary as Muslims were confused and worried by what was happening in the country.

He, however, asked that the meeting be held on the premise of honesty and without taking party interests into account.

The Kelantan Menteri Besar said such a meeting was timely as any delay would worsen the situation.

He also donated RM3,000 to the Maahad Muhammadi school.
