Personal Attacks Allowed In Islam
BESUT, Feb 27 (Bernama) -- PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang said PAS will resort to personal attacks against Barisan Nasional(BN) candidates aimed at garnering support of the people.
He said personal attacks were allowed in Islam as with electing leaders who were clean and of noble character.
"Islam allows us to make personal attacks. For example, during the time of Prophet Muhammad, a woman came and asked him how to choose a husband.
"Muhammad replied: Between a pauper and a basher, marry the pauper. (this shows that women are given the choice to choose their husbands.)
"This is only about choosing a husband, not a leader. In choosing a national leader we must find one who is clean and of noble character. In the process, personal attacks are allowed," he said at a PAS ceramah at Kampung Nail, Kuala Besut near here.
